UVM 2023: Family Farewell

family members laughing and talking

This event is for UVM 2023 family members only – not students.

As students head off to their mandatory Opening Weekend programming and families prepare to say farewell, they’re encouraged to join President Garimella, Interim Provost Patricia Prelock and Vice Provost for Student Affairs Annie Stevens for the Family Farewell Reception – an early evening meet and great with fellow families and key representatives from our campus with light h’orderves.


UVM’s Opening Weekend is a weekend designed just for incoming UVM students to help them connect with their peers, learn the ropes at UVM, and helps students acclimate to their new environment at college.  Opening Weekend begins with Friday’s First Year Move-In, and concludes with Twilight Induction.


UVM’s Week of Welcome begins the moment Opening Weekend ends, kicking off  a week long welcome celebration for all class years at UVM.  Mingle with your new friends or meet some new faces. Check out a Baseball game, go paintballing, or laugh it up at our annual comedy show – there’s loads to do as you navigate what life at UVM looks like for you.
