UT Austin’s Family Weekend has had many names through the years, like “Dad’s Day” and “Parents Weekend,” but regardless of what it has been called, this annual fall tradition has brought generations of Longhorn Families to the Forty Acres to visit their students and to learn what it means to live the Longhorn life.
Texas Parents proudly produces this great gathering in collaboration with UT Austin departments and partners across campus.
Family Weekend is the perfect opportunity to see campus through your student's eyes and get to know his or her home away from home. You'll spend time with your student, meet his or her new friends, visit with administrators and faculty from your student’s college or school and learn more about the resources available on campus.
