Class of 2020 First-Year Family Weekend
Fri, May 5, 2017, 10:00 AM – Sun, May 7, 2017, 1:00 PM EDT
First-Year Family Weekend is a self-funded program, planned each year by the First-Year Class and the Collis Center for Student Involvement. We look forward to presenting many opportunities for families to learn about how students achieve and succeed at Dartmouth, and for visitors to get a feel for Dartmouth's unique location in the Upper Valley. Organizers will work to create a fun-filled and information-packed schedule of events for the weekend.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about registration:
Q: ARE ALL EVENTS INCLUDED IN THE REGISTRATION PRICE?
A. All events sponsored by the Collis Center for Student Involvement are included in the price. Other campus departments will be hosting events and some may require an additional ticket price (i.e., productions at the Hopkins Center, canoe rentals, etc.). The final schedule in your registration packet will specify which events have an additional cost.
Q: HOW MANY FAMILY MEMBERS MAY ATTEND?
A: There is no limit. The more the merrier!
Q: DO I NEED TO REGISTER MY DARTMOUTH STUDENT?
A: No need– your Dartmouth student can attend all Family Weekend-sponsored events for free.
Q: ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED TO ATTEND?
A: Yes, children are welcome, but childcare services are not provided.
Q: WHAT DO I NEED FOR CHECK IN?
A: You just need yourself and your family! As long as you've received a confirmation email from Eventbrite after completing your registration, you're all set. When you arrive, we will mark you as here and provide you with a registration packet and name tag lanyards, which will function as you and your family's tickets into all of our events. Check in will happen in the Collis Center's Common Ground on Friday from 10 am – 8 pm and again on Saturday from 8 am – 12 Noon.
Q: ONE OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS IS IN A WHEELCHAIR. WILL ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES BE PROVIDED?
A: Yes. Please contact the Collis Center for Student Involvement before your arrival for more details.
