The Undergraduate Student Government Association would like to extend a warm welcome and invitation to you and your family to join us for our annual Family Weekend. Family weekend is an informative and engaging experience that includes students, parents, families, friends and the NSU community.

Parents and families will get the opportunity to visit campus and interact with organizations, people and places that have become so important to your student. This weekend helps to provide your student with the opportunity to bridge the gap between their lives both on and away from campus. 

You will find that there are a variety of activities and events that provide a glimpse into the campus life and student experience found at NSU. There are also several event options in which you and your family can engage. Family Weekend is always a wonderful time for everyone on our campus to connect and enjoy an event packed, memory making weekend with NSU. 

This year Family weekend will take place September 30th to October 2nd, 2022

Registration for Family Weekend has closed!
