Family Weekend at EIU

Family Weekend 2020 has gone virtual on November 6-7, 2020!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Family Weekend 2020 has been transitioned to a virtual format! Although we cannot gather together in person this year, we hope that you will virtually join your student to make memories and spend some virtual time together during Family Weekend! 

University Housing & Dining Services wants to feature one family’s dessert recipe on dining center menus during this year’s Family Weekend! Let's make your family's favorite dessert, our favorite dessert! Submit your recipe here by Wednesday, Oct. 28.
We encourage you to keep checking back to this website for more updates!

Be sure to tag us in your photos on social media with #EIUFamWeekend!
