Once students have settled into school, many colleges and universities invite families to their campus to kick off Family Weekend. Although Family Weekends vary by school, they generally include fun-filled activities designed to reconnect families and to offer a chance for the whole family to explore campus and the surrounding areas.
Family Weekends are often tied to sporting events. For example, Clemson University’s Family Weekend brings generations of Clemson students and families together to root for the Clemson Tigers.
Although students generally know their way around by Family Weekend time, it’s a different story for families; many have only received a brief tour of the campus before or at the start of school, while other families are not able to tour the campus at all.
With different activities taking place in many locations, interactive campus maps can be an essential source of information – as well as a wayfinding tool – to help students and families enjoy the weekend.
