Family Weekend Fun for Parents, Siblings

Family Weekend 2016July 29, 2016 (Jackson, Miss.) - Belhaven will welcome back parents and siblings to Family Weekend 2016 on September 30 – October 2. Whether cheering for the Blazers during an action-pack game or enjoying recreations like dodge ball, the weekend will be full of fun activities for the whole family. Register today to let us know which events you plan to attend.

The weekend will begin with the Belhaven Discover Day for siblings who are interesting in learning more about the University. Then, the Wynn Kenyon Think Center will have an open house for parents to learn about all of the resources offered to students. After a family catfish dinner in the Dining Commons, join us for Spirit Night. Play or watch as families try their skills at laser tag and other glow-in-the-dark themed yard games. The Belhaven Bookstore will be open with Family Weekend specials so you can get a good deal on Belhaven gear.

Saturday morning will begin with a brunch and a time of Q-and-A with Belhaven University President Dr. Roger Parrott. Get ready to cheer on our Blazers football as they face-off against East Texas Baptist University. Join us before the game for an exciting tailgate party at the new Belhaven Bowl Stadium in the center of campus. There will be delicious food, games, face-painting, cheer practice and drawings for free gifts. The Belhaven Football Tailgate is only $5 per person or $25 per family. You can pay at the tent. While you are there, enter the honorary captains drawing. If you win, you and your family will serve as “honorary captains” and toss the coin at the beginning of the game and receive a Blazers game day package of merchandise.
