Family Events


Orientation is not just for new students, but for parents and families too! Our family orientation program is specifically designed for parents, providing them with information they want to know about health and safety, books, food, transportation and more. Our student orientation advisors help answer questions from the student perspective, and parents leave the program feeling relieved and excited about their students' choice in coming to Binghamton.

Summer Send-offs

Available in late July and early August, our virtual Summer Send-offs create a wonderful opportunity for Binghamton University's newest students and families to come together and meet other Bearcats from their hometown! Registration for these virtual events will open later in the summer. Make sure you are registered as part of our Bearcat Family to be sure to get notifications.

Family Weekend

Family Weekend 2022 was held the weekend of Sept. 30–Oct. 2, 2022. We had a great turnout! Check back next year for Family Weekend 2023!

This annual event takes place each fall on our Binghamton University campus. It is a time for families to partake in the same spirit that embraces our students on campus throughout the academic year. This weekend of fun-filled events gives you a snapshot of our campus culture, the community's academic excellence and the energy of our vibrant campus. Family Weekend — the largest event of the year for the parents and families of our undergraduate students — annually brings more than 4,500 participants to campus. 


Celebrate your student's success in completing a degree as they become a lifetime member of the Alumni Association.
