Fall Family Weekend

Dear Volunteer Families, 

You are invited to join us for the Virtual Fall Family Weekend Friday, October 9 – Sunday, October 11. This year, registration for Family Weekend is available at no cost and open to all members of the Volunteer Family. Registration will begin on Friday, September 25, 2020 at 11 a.m. EST. At that time, you will receive the registration link and additional instructions via email. 

Virtual Fall Family Weekend will be an excellent opportunity to connect your student and share in the rich traditions and culture of Big Orange Country. Virtually, you will be able to meet other families and UT staff, get your questions answered, and find out more ways you can partner with UT in your student’s education in the future.

As we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our community, we made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person activities for Fall Family Weekend. Even though nothing compares to visiting your student and experiencing the rich traditions and culture of Big Orange Country firsthand, our goal is to provide an opportunity for families to connect virtually with your students and campus over the course of the weekend and the rest of the semester.

We share in your disappointment and appreciate your understanding. The health and safety of our community is our number one concern, and we value your partnership to help keep Rocky Top healthy and safe.
