Fall Family Weekend

Save the Date: October 21-23, 2022

Brought to you by the UNM Parent & Family Association and the UNM Alumni Association, the Fall Family Weekend is a great networking opportunity for Lobo parents and families! Meet other parents and families while having fun tailgating in preparation for a Lobo Football game. Everyone’s a Lobo! Woof, Woof, Woof! 

Freshman Family Day: Convocation & Class Crawl

Freshman Family Day is a UNM event which is intended to welcome incoming students and their families to the University Community. Freshman Family Day includes the Freshman Convocation, a reception immediately following the ceremony, and classroom tours with a class crawl.

Freshman Family Day recognizes all of our incoming freshmen, introduces them and their families to the University administrators, faculty and staff, all of whom have been preparing for this day for a long time. The University wants our incoming students to know that they are about to enter a new phase in their lives, an academic adventure, which will prepare them to lead a rewarding and fulfilling life. We also would like the community of citizens of New Mexico to know that they are welcome on this campus, that we expect to partner with the family to ensure student success, and that the University values the family and does not seek to separate students from their familial, cultural, and communal roots. Visit the Fall Family Day website for more information.
