Family and Friends Weekend

September 30, 2022 - October 2, 2022

Family and Friends Weekend is an annual event that brings thousands of family members to the University of Maine to reconnect with their Black Bear. This event is for families of all sizes, dynamics, and class years. It is the University’s time to celebrate the fall season in New England, honor our traditions, and enjoy the company of students and their families, faculty and staff, alumni, and members of the extended Black Bear community.

Join the University of Maine for a very special weekend. Friday, join us for on-campus entertainment, time to live in the shoes of your student. Saturday, enjoy on- and off-campus activities and meet some of our faculty and staff. Show support and encouragement by attending our fall athletic games (including UMaine as we take on Villanova), go on campus tours, and visit our annual Block Party celebration. Sunday, attend some new and old traditions including a farewell Breakfast, educational sessions and tours, vendors, and more.

Save the date for our Family and Friends Weekend: Sept. 30 – Oct. 2.
