The weekend’s schedule, which can be found in Adobe Acrobat .pdf format here, features readings, musical performances, and a wide variety of informational sessions designed for students and families alike. The highlight of Family Weekend is the Saturday evening’s Pumpkin Parade, one of the College's oldest long-standing traditions, in which sophomores present their senior sisters with lighted pumpkins. The celebration includes a lively serenade between the sophomores and seniors, and a cameo vocal performance from the President of the College. This year, as in years past, the College is anticipating nearly 1000 visitors over the three-day event.
