Family Weekend

Family Weekend Banner 2021

Fall 2021: Saturday, November 6

The FIT campus is a student's home away from home, and each year we invite family members and friends to make it theirs as part of Family Weekend. Share the FIT experience as you spend time connecting with your student, interacting with faculty and staff, and experiencing what makes being an FIT student so special.

 

On November 6, we invite all students and their family members, wherever they are, to join us to celebrate. Although Family Weekend will not happen in person, we hope you will still take this opportunity to spend time together to strengthen your bond as a family. 

Check out the Museum at FIT virtual tours, take a virtual tour of the FIT campus, see what amazing alumni the HUE Magazine has interviewed, or simply check the Barnes and Noble at FIT website for your favorite FIT swag item.

Most of the events and activities listed below will be live or prerecorded, but we encourage you to make plans with your family to participate in the events of your choice.

We'd love to see how your family is participating in Virtual Family Weekend, so share your photos and videos on social media with #FITFamilyWeekend. We may even feature you!
