Welcome to Family Weekend

UM Family Weekend Goes Virtual

After heartfelt consideration during these trying times, the University of Montana has made the decision to postpone the in-person Family Weekend scheduled Oct. 16-18. However, to keep you connected and your students safe, virtual programs you can participate in with your student are being designed for that same weekend.

Family Weekend programming is free and open to any of our UM Family. Check the event schedule for more information.

Instead of the standard football-game ticket packages, UM will offer branded care packages that families can purchase for their students. Other great engagement activities will also be offered to provide a positive boost in October.

For more information, be sure to sign up for Griz Family News and follow the event on Facebook by marking yourself as "Going"! For questions about Family Weekend, please email karen.schlatter@umontana.edu or call (406) 243-4191.
