Family Weekend Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I register for Family Weekend?

We ask guests to pre-register (online) so we can plan for campus services and programs. On-site registration will be available during Family Weekend check-in.

2. When I click Register Online, the page says "error" and that it is "not available." What should I do?

If you encounter this problem, try using a different web browser. For instance, if you are currently using Internet Explorer and experience this problem, try using Firefox instead.

3. Do I need to register my student for Family Weekend?

No, you do not need to register your student for Family Weekend. This means you do not need to include your student in the number of people you RSVP for. However, for some ticketed events, you may need to purchase or reserve a ticket for your student. For information about purchasing tickets, see questions 4 & 5 below.

4. Do I have to purchase tickets for Family Weekend?

Some events, but not all of them, require tickets. The following events are ticketed (paid) events:

  • Theatre Production 
  • Gourmet Brunch 
  • Silver Falls State Park Hike 
  • Homecoming Tailgate BBQ
  • The Second City Touring Co. 

5. Do I need to purchase tickets for my student?

If you’d like to attend a ticketed event with your student, you will need to purchase a ticket for him/her for all ticketed events with the following exceptions:

  • Gourmet Brunch: If your student is on a meal plan, the brunch counts as a board meal and you do not need to purchase a ticket for them. Students without meal plans (including sorority members and ICL students) will need brunch tickets (which are available at the student rate).
  • Comedy Show (The Second City Touring Co.): Student tickets are free, however they must be requested through the Family Weekend registration and ticketing website. Limited student (and guest) tickets will be available on-site at the show. 
  • Homecoming Tailgate BBQ: students will need tickets for this event.
  • Theatre Performances: students will need tickets for performances.
  • Silver Falls Hike: students will need tickets for this event.

6. When will I receive the tickets I’ve ordered?

You will receive all of your tickets, except theatre tickets, at check-in. Theatre tickets must be picked up at the theatre ticket box-office when you arrive on campus.

7. If I’m arriving outside of the check-in times, what should I do?

The best thing to do is to have your student check-in for you. They will be able to pick up your information packets and any tickets and/or shirts you may have purchased.
