A Penn State Behrend celebration for students, parents and families.

Parents and Families Weekend is one of the highlights of the Fall semester at Penn State Behrend. A celebration for young and old alike, it offers plenty of things to do for students, parents, brothers and sisters, extended family - everyone! There is a lot to celebrate at Penn State Behrend: a beautiful campus, talented faculty who foster academic excellence, a wide variety of extracurricular activities, the opportunity to develop close, lasting friendships, and much more.

Parents and Families Weekend is the perfect way to celebrate our pride in Penn State Behrend's past and our excitement about what the future holds. Come Friday evening, stay through brunch on Sunday.

There are several hotels in the area and many of them offer Behrend special event rates. Please visit our lodging page for more details.
