Event-Packed Family Weekend Draws 7,000
More than 7,000 Terp family members and their students toured, cheered, paddled, golfed, sang and ate their way through the university’s 38th annual Family Weekend.
The three-day event, ending yesterday, boasted the second-highest attendance in its history, said Brian Watkins, director of the Office of Parent and Family Affairs.
Additions for 2018 included dinners for Terp legacy families and out-of-staters, in partnership with the Alumni Association, and a 0.5K “race” down McKeldin Mall, including a doughnut and coffee hydration station halfway through.
Other highlights included the annual gospel brunch, a RecWell paddling tour of D.C. along the Potomac River, a Terps Against Hunger community-service event, and post-football game tailgate, which drew over 2,200 guests.
