Belhaven University is excited to be hosting its annual Family Weekend this weekend on campus. Parents and siblings are encouraged to register online for a weekend filled with faith, food and fun.
Family Weekend coincides with Belhaven’s Fall Discover Day, which takes place on Friday, September 25. Siblings and family members interested in attending Belhaven can get a first hand look at college life. Those interested in attending Discover Day should contact the Admission office or register for Discovery Day separately.
The campus will be in full swing on Friday, with lunch available in the Dining Commons. The Wynn Kenyon Think Center will host an open house from 1:00-5 :00pm, including a faculty panel – “Keys to Academic Success,” beginning at 3:30 pm.
At 5:30, families are invited to a catfish dinner in the Dining Commons, and at 8:00 pm, students and families are invited to Rec the Night! Belhaven Activities and Intramurals hosts a popular event that includes laser tag, dodge ball, and more in the Lower Practice Field.
Siblings of the same gender are invited to stay overnight in residence halls with their brother or sister. We know that they have missed each other!
Dr. Roger Parrott, President of the University will host a campus update in the Student Center beginning at 10:00 am on Saturday. At 11:30, head on over to Newell Field for tailgating prior to the Blazers’ 1:00 game with Alabama’s Huntington University. There will be a drawing for a family and their student to serve as honorary captains at the game.
Families are encouraged to spend Saturday evening with their students, as well as attend Sunday morning worship services on their own. We look forward to seeing everyone on campus for this great weekend event!
