Family Weekend

October 22, 2021 October 23, 2021 EDT

Join us on campus for Family Weekend 2021!  Attend classes, meet your students’ teachers, learn more about Walker’s, cheer for our athletic teams, and enjoy connecting with other families.

We are eager to learn if you will be attending in person or will participate in the virtual portions of the weekend.

Arrive for Family Weekend a day early!
Join us for a fun day of golf on Thursday, October 21 while supporting Walker’s student-athletes! The proceeds of Walker’s Fall Classic will provide additional resources to enhance the Walker’s Athletics Program by creating and expanding opportunities for student-athletes to learn, lead, and compete.
