Family Weekend

A date for Family Weekend has not been selected yet, but here is a glimpse of last year's activities.  

A DU Experience for the Family

Davenport University began a new tradition when we hosted the inaugural Family Weekend in 2010. It was a great success and continues to get better each year.

Family Weekend invites parents, siblings, children and other family members to experience a weekend in Grand Rapids at the Grand Rapids Lettinga campus.
