FGCU Hosts "Eagle Family Weekend" Nov. 2-4

FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Division of Student Affairs and the Office of New Student Programs invite parents, guardians, siblings, children, friends and families of FGCU students to attend Eagle Family Weekend Nov. 2-4.

Eagle Family Weekend (EFW) is a great opportunity for the entire family to visit Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) and the greater Fort Myers area, spend some quality time with students and continue to build connections to the University.

Throughout the weekend there will be activities (both on and off campus) that focus on family participation and interaction with members of the campus community, while providing time to reflect on the community and its values, which include a wide variety of ideas, beliefs and cultures.

A wide range of events are planned for the whole family, including:
     A Fall Concert performed by students and faculty from The Bower School of Music;
     Breakfast and a Movie for children of all ages...including the young at heart;
     The annual EFW Cookout, featuring illusionist Jason Michaels;
     University Athletics Tailgate (prior to the FGCU vs. Central Connecticut State hockey game)...and much more!

Visit the website for complete details as well as information regarding lodging, registration fees and to register online.
