Junior Parents Weekend 2023 
Dates: TBA in Fall 2022


Welcome to Junior Parents Weekend 2022! 

Dear Class of 2023 and Families,

As we approach the spring 2022 semester, we cordially invite you and your parents to join us this February on campus to celebrate Junior Parents Weekend. In this unique tradition, we hope that you and your families will enjoy and experience all of the best of what the University of Notre Dame has to offer. From gatherings with faculty, staff, and friends, to Mass on Sunday, we hope that your time here will allow you to bond as a family and to learn more about what makes our campus so special. 

In light of the ongoing global pandemic, and in remaining cognizant of concerns related to COVID-19 and its impact on campus, this year’s schedule of events has changed from past years.  Even so, we believe this year’s schedule of festivities is filled with opportunities for you to show your family campus through your eyes, including meeting faculty and staff, making new friends while reconnecting with old ones, and exploring all the beautiful areas of campus you love. Make sure you join us for JPW’s signature events being offered in-person as well as virtually: 

  • February 19: Academic Workshops from 10:00am-2:00pm
  • February 19: President’s Reception from 4:00pm-6:00pm
  • February 20: Class of 2023 Mass at 10:00am

To see the full schedule of events and to purchase your tickets for Junior Parents Weekend, visit Ticket sales will continue through the event and those purchased after January 31, 2022 will be charged a $20 late fee per registration. The JPW committee is committed to making this event affordable for as many families as possible. If your family needs financial assistance with tickets, travel or lodging, please email the Office of Student Enrichment at
