Keri Jensen, associate director of student care and parent engagement, said, “Family Weekend is a great chance for families to reconnect and visit with their student.  We designed this weekend specifically for families as an opportunity to experience Belhaven’s culture through the arts, athletics and student life. We hope all of our Belhaven families will travel back to Jackson for what will be an exciting and encouraging weekend.”

Weekend events such as Flashback Friday will involve food and karaoke of days-gone-by. Families can also catch a free show from the Belhaven Theatre Department. The Fantasticks, a comedy/romance musical, will premiere in the Black Box Theatre on Friday and Saturday night. Students and their families will get competitive in Games on the Green and face-off in games such as corn-hole, spike ball, can-jam, and more.

Get ready to cheer on Blazers Football as they take on McMurry University. Join us before the game for an exciting tailgate party at the Belhaven Bowl Stadium in the center of campus. Families will get the opportunity to create their own SWAG bags and enjoy food, games, face-painting, cheer practice and more before the game.
