Parent & Family Weekend at Augusta University is a time to visit with your Jag, enjoy campus, and participate in family-friendly activities. Whether you’re visiting from afar or from down the street, come spend the weekend with us.
- See how your Jag is adjusting to campus. Chances are the last time you were on campus was for a campus tour or Move In Day. Parent’s Weekend is a time to explore the campus in more detail. You’ll be able to spend time in areas that you wanted to see more of on the campus tour or see how the campus has changed. Your Jag should be all settled in their room; pop in to meet their roommate and see their new home away from home.
- Explore the city. A lot is going on in Augusta. Use this weekend to step outside of your comfort zone to explore. There are great restaurants just blocks away from our Downtown and Summerville campuses. You can rent a kayak or bike to spend the day on the Augusta Canal. Or grab some local produce and wares at the Augusta Farmers’ Market.
- Catch up on what’s new. Campuses are always changing. New renovations or building additions can transform a campus. Parent’s Weekend is the perfect chance to tour a new building, such as the new Georgia Cyber Center campus downtown, see the newest art installations at the Mary S. Byrd Gallery, or just poke your head into come classrooms and see how they’ve changed throughout the years.
- For the BBQ. Parent’s Weekend takes place on the same weekend as our annual Brew-N-Que. Expect to spend a family-friendly evening outside, eating BBQ, listening to live local music and watching a fireworks show next to professors, staff, current students and alumni. It’s a great way to meet all the amazing people of JagNation.
- Help your Jag shop for success. The university’s Career Services team is hosting a Suit Up event at J.C. Penny during Parent Weekend. During the sale, select suits, sport coats, dresses and shoes will be on sale. It’s a great opportunity to help your Jag dress for success and maybe help them land a job at the same time. (Hear that? That’s the sweet, sweet sound of your Jag paying for their own food with their own money. Sounds like a good investment to us.)
