Community Chatter: What are you doing for Family Weekend?

What are you doing for Family Weekend?

“My family isn’t coming, so I’m probably just going to be relaxing this weekend. We don’t really like big family events, but they’re coming later on.”

—Lizzy Ferrara, a public health freshman

“I’m not coming on campus or anything. I’m probably just going to hang out with my boyfriend. I think my sister and cousins might come; we’re from Tucson, so this is normal.”

—Karina Valle, a psychology senior

“I actually haven’t even thought about it. I’m from in town, and I live with my family still, so I guess it’s not really a big deal for me. But we usually go to the football game, though.”

—Jesse Morrison, a psychology junior

“I didn’t know that there was a Family Weekend. Oddly though, I’m probably hanging out with my family because I live in Tucson with [them], so it makes it pretty simple.”

—Liam Etheridge, an anthropology senior

“I’m in the band and my family isn’t coming, so I’m going to be doing band stuff and perform at the football game.”

—Nick Flanery, a history and German studies senior

“We’re going to the game and to the tailgate before; we’re also going to dinner tonight at Falora [Pizza]. I’m going to do homework and my parents and I are going to go to downtown because they’re having a festival this weekend. My parents are coming from Omaha, [Nebraska].”

—Jillian Bettger, general studies sophomore with an emphasis in economy and industry
