ANTEATER FAMILY WEEKEND

Anteater Family Weekend 2017

Anteater Family Weekend offers families a snapshot into the life of your student and provides an up close look at how the university continues to achieve excellence in teaching, research, and public service. Attend classes by professors your student might take, meet other Anteater parents and families at social events, and enjoy dinner with UCI Provost Enrique Lavernia.

There's also an opportunity for parents and guardians to meet up with students at lunch to talk as a family about the campus, their classes, and college life.

Anteater Family Weekend is for students who are currently enrolled at UCI and their families. This program is not intended for prospective students or their families.
