A beautiful fall New England weekend provided the perfect backdrop for Holy Cross Family Weekend, Oct. 25–27. This campus-wide celebration invites parents, grandparents and all extended families to experience their student’s home away from home. By all accounts, the weekend was a huge success.

Here are some highlights.

Celebrating the Arts at Holy Cross. The arts were on full display throughout the weekend. A variety of art, music and theatrical performances showcased an array of student talent, from a cappella singers to modern dance. It also provided an opportunity for visitors to experience the newly renovated Brooks Concert Hall.

Crusader Athletics. Sports fans had their choice of men’s ice hockey, football, field hockey, men’s and women’s swimming, and men’s soccer teams to cheer on. The field hockey team claimed the weekend’s only victory; but despite the losses, there was no shortage of Purple Pride on display.

Family Fun. Embracing the Halloween spirit, faculty families, student families as well as students donned costumes and went trick-or-treating in a Haunted Healy House. Holy Cross Science Ambassadors treated future Crusaders to a hands-on science class Hogwarts style.

President’s Hour. A record number of people attended The President’s Hour at which College president, Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., brought families up to speed on campus news and fielded questions about programs and other areas of interest to families.

Mark your calendars for next year’s event: Oct. 24–26, 2014!
