 Eagle Family Weekend

October 21-23, 2016


Pre-Registration is now closed, but you can still register when you arrive on campus to check in for the weekend.  


To get get an idea of what events we will be hosting, please review the Eagle Family Weekend Agenda! 



Eagle Family Weekend is specifically designed for the parents/guardians, siblings, children, friends, and families of FGCU students to learn more about the university and feel a greater connection to the institution. Throughout the weekend there will be activities (both on and off campus) that focus on family participation and interaction with members of the campus community, while providing time to reflect on our community and its values, which include a wide variety of ideas, beliefs, and cultures.

It is our goal to help you strengthen your commitment to FGCU through a shared experience that lays a foundation for your continued involvement with the university in the future. Go Eagles!!
