Planning Your Visit

To fully engage in all Family Weekend activities, we recommend arriving in Miami in the late afternoon or early evening on Thursday, September 21, and departing Miami any time that works for your schedule on Sunday, September 24. However, you are always welcome to customize your schedule and flights to meet your family’s need.

Coordinating with Your Student
Please note that classes are still in session on Friday, September 22, 2017 and your student will need to attend classes on this day. It is also possible that your student may have assignments, projects or exams on September 22nd or the week following Family Weekend.

We suggest that you check with your student ahead of time regarding their homework and study schedule for the weekend. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the availability of your student based on their own academic and co-curricular schedule.
