Sophomore Family Weekend

Friday, July 27, 2018 — Sunday, July 29, 2018

Sophomore Family Weekend (SFW) is planned by the Sophomore Class in partnership with the Collis Center for Student Involvement. The weekend offers an excellent opportunity for parents and families to enjoy the Hanover summer and experience the Dartmouth that your student has come to know after two years here.

2018 Schedule

We will post a more definite schedule when it becomes finalized.  In the meantime we are glad to offer general schedule information.

The majority of visiting families arrive Friday and depart on Sunday.

The weekend begins with Check-In—this is where you can receive your nametag (for admission to events), and a detailed schedule of events. 

Check-In for Sophomore Family Weekend  occurs from 12pm-7pm on Friday. Families can also check in on Saturday from 8am to noon. 

We usually have a variety of events (tours, lectures, performances, meals) for this weekend scheduled from Friday afternoon through Sunday morning. Please feel free to contact us or 603-646-3399 if you have any additional questions.
