Meetings and other events are scheduled throughout the weekend to help first-year students learn about the Grace campus and community and to become familiar with expectations and the campus environment.

In addition, programs are provided during the weekend to help parents learn about the campus community, educational philosophy, and academic commitment of the college and its faculty and administration. First-year students are required to attend the events specified for them on the schedule.

Each parent will be given two complimentary meal passes for the weekend, which can be picked up at Welcome Weekend Registration. Additional meal passes for other family members can be purchased at the entrance of Alpha Dining Commons.
