Welcome to Family Weekend
The air is crisp, the leaves have begun to change, and your student has officially settled in at Michigan Tech—time for a trip to campus for Family Weekend!
Family Weekend is a Michigan Tech tradition held each fall in October. It’s a free weekend event for parents and families to come and visit their students, explore campus, and see the local sights.
Family Weekend events include local fall color tours, waterfall hikes, a boat cruise along the Keweenaw Waterway, canoeing/kayaking, mine tours, a golf scramble, athletic games, and more. The weekend closes with a Sunday brunch. All events are family-oriented and meant to be enjoyed together with other students and visiting families.
