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? As of now, Family Weekend 2022 will take place on the Pitzer College campus. We look forward to being able to bring our community back together. Some events will be held onsite, virtually, or a hybrid of the two. In the event that we have to pivot our on-campus plans due to national, statewide, or local health regulations, Family Weekend will still continue virtually via Pitzer@Home.

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.
