Family Weekend Details

Family Weekend 2017 is full of tradition and excitement and is a wonderful time for parents and families to reconnect with their student, allow students to share favorite campus places and activities with their family, and meet other Cardinal families. There are exciting programs and events to explore and enjoy the vibrant Cardinal community.

**In observance of Yom Kippur, we are collaborating with the UofL Religious Life Association, Louisville Hillel, and the Jewish Federation of Louisville so that any families observing Yom Kippur are invited to attend services Friday night or Saturday at local synagogues in Louisville and all Family Weekend guests are welcome to attend Louisville Hillel's Communal Break Fast on Saturday, September 30 at 8 p.m. in the Interfaith Center on campus.  Please contact Benji Berlow at for additional info.
