We are pleased to offer an in-person Family Weekend, and we do so as we navigate the continued impact of COVID-19 and our ability to safely host large events. Masks are required for all indoor events and programs during Family Weekend on October 1 – 3, 2021. Attendees are required to wear a properly fitting mask over their nose and mouth. This is to safeguard your health and the health of all family members, especially our younger Terps and other vulnerable populations. Family Weekend attendees are permitted to remove their mask indoors only when eating or drinking. Read more.
