Dear Nacogdoches Community Members,

Family Weekend, formerly known as Parents Day, is an annual event hosted at Stephen F. Austin State University. It enables family members to visit their SFA student and see for themselves what life as a Lumberjack is like.

During this event, approximately 2,500 family members will visit the university. In addition, these guests venture out into the community to dine, shop and sightsee.  

This year, Family Weekend will take place Friday, Sept. 20, through Sunday, Sept. 22. A booklet that provides information about SFA, student organizations and the community will be provided to each registrant. This booklet is a valuable tool to help promote your organization or business through advertisements.
