Family Day for First Year Students


Berea College’s Family Day for First Year Students

The Berea College community would like to invite you to join us on Saturday, September 19 for our annual Family Day for First Year Students. This year’s Family Day is scheduled in coordination with Berea’s 19th Annual Spoonbread Festival. Festival activities will include all day concerts, craft booths, food, a parade, activities for children, and more. Go here for a full schedule of Spoonbread Festival. A link to the schedule of events for Berea College Family Day is included right above the “Register” button below. In addition to the festival we will be providing a lunch and Information Session for families and students on campus on Saturday from 12pm – 1:30pm; our Campus Bookstore will be open from 10am – 6pm; and tours of the campus/community will be available at the Visitors Center.

Check-In and Registration for Family Day will be in the Seabury Center Main Lobby on Friday evening between 5pm – 8pm and again on Saturday morning between 9am – 11am.

Please note that this event is not like Orientation, there are no events that you are required to attend. There will be opportunities to visit with campus administrators and take part in campus activities, but our primary goal is to give you time to visit with your student. We are offering a flexible schedule of events that allows ample time for your family to take part in only the activities that interest you.
