Maurader Family Weekend will take place on Friday, September 13 and Saturday, September 14 on the Millersville campus.

 Parents do not need to register ahead of time to participate, and no parking passes are required from 4 PM on Friday until 7 AM on Monday. Programming will begin Friday night, during which families can choose to attend a Family Fun Pub Trivia event or a Murder Mystery Dinner both of which are set to begin at 7 PM in Bolger Conference Center and the Student memorial center, respectively. 

Families can sign up ahead of time on Millersville’s website to participate in the university’s first-ever family “cornhole” tournament, which will begin at 10 AM Saturday, and enjoy an indoor black-light miniature golf game in the student memorial center at 11 AM. 

Parents and their college students also have the option to attend “College of General Knowledge” programming at the Student Memorial Center, which will include a session containing information about study abroad programs at 1 PM and tips on overcoming first-year hurdles at 2 PM. 

Programming will conclude at 3 PM in the McNairy Library Lobby with a Cider Pour that will feature refreshments, a performance by the All Campus Musical Organization (ACMO) and Millersville students showcasing their independent research.
