First-Year Family Weekend

McGraw Tower in Autumn

Cornell will not be hosting an in-person Family Weekend in 2020. We are still assessing the feasibility of a virtual event, and we invite you to check this site again in September.

Family Weekend is traditionally designed for families of new students to experience Cornell from the student perspective, to enjoy special events, and to learn more about Cornell and Ithaca. Historically this weekend is for the families of new undergraduate students (first-year and transfer students) although other Cornell families, including extended family members may participate.

Visit Cornell's coronavirus webpage for the most current campus updates and FAQs for reactivating the campus.
