Family and Friends Weekend
New Student Programs and Leadership
Family and Friends Weekend is an exciting opportunity for parents and other family members to visit campus and enjoy the community and spirit our students experience daily.
This past year, Family and Friends Weekend drew a record-breaking 7,500 visitors to campus.
The weekend began Friday night with a Family and Friends Welcome Dinner held at Salmanson Dining Hall, followed by a Sip and Paint event at our campus art studio, where parents, students, faculty, and staff tapped into their artistic expression.
On Saturday, families browsed the Harvest Market at the Quinlan/Brown Academic Innovation Center, which featured wares by student entrepreneurs and local businesses. Guests were then treated to a student talent showcase with performances by Bryant dancers, musicians, and singers.
We also held our annual duck race, a fundraiser for the Class of 2024, and Bulldog football fans watched Bryant battle Gardner-Webb at Beirne Stadium.
