Fall and Spring Family Weekend

Fall Family Weekend - October 27-29, 2017


Fall 2017 Family Weekend is Friday, October 27, 2017 - Sunday, October 29, 2017

We happily welcome families to campus in the fall and winter months is to showcase all of the great things that Carson Long offers the cadets on a daily basis. Family Weekend is meant as an opportunity to meet other families, observe parade, enjoy our wonderful food service, meet with faculty and staff for parent/teacher conferences and building officer conferences, and learn about our college counseling program.

Family Weekend is also an opportunity for families to take their sons off campus for the evening of Saturday, October 28, 2017.
