Greetings from McMurry University!

As we look to the beginning of a new academic year, we are very excited about our new students who will be joining our community this year as well as welcoming our returning students back to our campus in the center of our community of Abilene, Texas. As parents and family members, you play a vital role in the success of your student on-campus and contribute greatly as a partner in your student’s success.

With this important partnership in mind, we are pleased to invite you to McMurry University’s Family Weekend 2017. We have a number of activities planned for you to become even more familiar with our University, as well as with the local community. Most importantly, we have designed a weekend during which you will be able to spend quality time with your student and meet other McMurry families, faculty and staff members.

At registration, we invite you to participate in a service project - stocking the shelves of our food pantry in the Friendship Closet. Please bring non-perishable food items to registration to participate. We hope you’ll join McMurry faculty and staff and other families at breakfast on Saturday morning (9:30 a.m.) in the Village Market Dining Hall. In addition, there are many social, athletic and arts events scheduled all weekend long. You can register for Family Weekend by filling out the registration form.

If you have any questions regarding Family Weekend 2017 please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you soon on campus!
