Alumni Weekend is fun for kids too! Many alumni like to share Dickinson with their families, so we created a few programs to make the weekend more enjoyable for the whole family.

Family-Friendly Housing

We realize many people relive their college years during Alumni Weekend and that those staying on campus with children may want a more peaceful night's sleep. Simply indicate on your registration form that you would like family friendly housing and we will place you in a dorm with other families.

Children's Program

Our children's program is led by experienced childcare professionals from the Dickinson Children’s Center. Children ages 3-11 who are potty-trained can enjoy pizza, movies, crafts, and games on Saturday evening. Please let us know in advance of any food allergies, medical conditions, or special needs that we may accommodate in order to ensure that your child has full access to programming in a safe environment. Pre-registration and fee are required and space is limited.

Family Fun Zone

On Saturday,  Morgan Field becomes a place for families to enjoy the beauty of campus in summer. Activities include a bounce house, lemonade, face painting and lawn games.
