Dear Stanford Families,

We are delighted to invite you to Family Weekend at Stanford on February 23-24, 2024. Family Weekend is an annual tradition that provides special opportunities for family members of current undergraduates to spend time with students, their friends, and other families on the Farm. You can get a taste of campus life, see where your students take classes and socialize, and enjoy unique programs specifically for families.
