Families & Fellows Weekend

Sep 22, 2017 at 8:00pm to Sep 24, 2017 at 10:00am

Every fall, Families and Fellows brings together two parts of the Heidelberg community: the families of current students and our members of the Fellows Organization. During this celebratory weekend, Families and Fellows visit in classrooms, listen to presentations, and participate in a variety of fun activities. Gifts from Fellows and other annual giving donors typically exceed $1 million each year, and are a significant source of financial aid for our students. We hope you make plans to attend this exciting weekend on campus! Registration closes Monday, September 18 at 11:00 PM.
