Family Weekend

Every fall, Family Weekend provides a chance for parents, relatives, and friends to visit students for a fun-filled weekend on the Nazareth campus. This is a great time for families to experience college through their student's eyes, and for students to show family and friends why Nazareth is their home away from home.  All who have a student attending Nazareth are invited to join in the good times!

Schedule/Registration

The schedule for Family Weekend is still evolving!  It will be updated here as new events are added and an informational postcard will be mailed to families soon.  Registration will start in September.

Community Service: Make Yarn Dolls for Dress a Girl Around the World
Location TBD, 10 a.m. - 11 a.m.

Dress A Girl Around the World is an exciting program that provides dresses and dolls for girls around the world, and in the United States. Besides addressing the basic need for clothing, the dresses provide the girls with a level of protection from sex trafficking. Each dress comes complete with a doll tucked in the pocket to show that someone cares about them. Each dress and doll bring dignity in areas of the world where some girls are regarded as having no voice or value. Making these dresses and dolls seems to be such a simple act, but to the girls receiving them, it's priceless! The dresses and dolls will go to girls in countries such as Haiti, Uganda, Honduras, Nepal, India - to girls in nearly 60 countries worldwide. Get creative and help us make these special, unique dolls. Sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement.
