Family Weekend Frequently Asked Questions

Attendees in a colaborative classroom at family weekend 2017

What is Family Weekend? Family Weekend is a chance for Pitzer families from around the globe to come together and get a glimpse of their student’s Pitzer College experience. You’ll learn more about the College, meet the faculty, and participate in special events throughout the weekend.

Where does Family Weekend take place? While we truly hoped to have this year’s event be on-campus and face-to-face, Family Weekend 2022 will be a virtual experience. We will offer a fun-filled virtual experience for our families equipped with great family activities, talks from our professors, activity packages, and more!

When is Family Weekend? Family Weekend 2022 takes place from Friday, February 18, through Sunday, February 20, 2022.

I am the parent of a Pitzer sophomore, junior, or senior and have attended Family Weekend before. Is there something new for me? Absolutely! All parents are sure to find unique faculty talks and panel discussions. Plus, Pitzer students change every year they’re here. Family Weekend is a great chance to meet your student’s new favorite professor or find out about programs that have sparked a new interest.
