mother and child visiting campusThis year, Family Weekend is scheduled for September 15-16. We invite you to visit Wingate University for this exciting weekend, when your student can give you a tour of their favorite places and introduce you to the friends who have become family. Activities are designed for all ages, so bring the whole family. Many Family Weekend activities are free; select events require ticketing in advance; all events require an RSVP (so that we can be great hosts).

Please join us for Family Weekend 2017. Family members of all ages are invited for a weekend of food, fellowship, and fun. Events that require ticket purchase are as follows:

  • Clambake and Auction: $35 for adults 21+, which includes all-you-can-eat dinner and wristband for beer and wine. $15 for anyone younger than 21, which includes all-you-can-eat dinner but excludes beer and wine. Buffet includes: fried fish, fried shrimp, steamed clams, roasted oysters, hush puppies, slaw, and peach cobbler.
  • Family/Faculty/Staff Mixer: $15 per adult; one student/child granted free entry per paying adult. Come enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and get to know some of your student’s favorite faculty and staff in a casual atmosphere. We’ll make it easy to identify faculty and staff by area of expertise so you can get the conversation started.

Prices at the door may be slightly higher, so purchase your tickets in advance! Athletic tickets are sold separatelyWe encourage you to book your room at the Courtyard Marriott Matthews, the preferred hotel for Family Weekend 2017.
