Family Weekend FAQ’s

What is Family Weekend?

Family Weekend is an opportunity for families to meet faculty members, administrators, students and other parents. The College has planned a diverse schedule for parents to become better acquainted with the campus and spend quality time with their students.

Are family members and guests welcome to all events?

All family members are welcome at all events—siblings, grandparents and other family members. Please ensure all guest names are listed on the registration form, as nametags for all attendees will be provided. Programs offered during Family Weekend are not designed for children under 16.

What is the cost for Mudd Family Weekend?

We charge a registration fee of $40 per person (with the exception of HMC students and children 13 and under who are FREE), which helps to offset our overhead expenses for the weekend, including publications, registration materials, room and equipment fees, staffing and catering for all non-ticketed events. In addition to the registration fee, there is also a per-person and per-child cost for both meals that assists in covering the additional food and entertainment expenses for those events. We make every effort to keep the weekend affordable while still offering a quality experience for all of our families.

Will my student(s) be able to participate?

Yes, students are encouraged to attend all portions of the weekend. We recommend that you check with your student(s) regarding his/her academic schedule and availability.
