Family Weekend

Family Day

Amherst College Family Day will look a little different this year, but we are so excited to host this special day in person, on campus, on Saturday, October 23!

This one-day event will be held outside, with plenty of tents. Please check the schedule. It is updated regularly.

Registered guests will receive an email about the safety protocols that will be in place in order to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Please note that visitors will not be allowed into campus buildings, including residence halls, so keep an eye on the forecast and dress for New England fall weather (and bring a mask for high-density food lines!).

In keeping with measures we currently have in place to try to keep the campus as safe as possible—and being mindful of the many faculty, staff and students who will be involved in programs throughout the day—all Family Day attendees 12 and over will need to be fully vaccinated.

We can’t wait to welcome you to campus!

Please note that minors attending the event should be supervised at all times by an accompanying adult. 

By attending this event, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and release Amherst College (including its affiliates, trustees, officers, employees, and volunteers) from any and all liability for any illness or injury arising from or in any way related to this event.

Events are subject to all local and state public health guidelines and rules.
