Fall Family Weekend
Fall Family Weekend is an annual campus tradition that brings students and their families together with the Chestertown community in a celebration of academic and co-curricular achievement.
Typically scheduled for the last weekend in September, Fall Family Weekend coincides with the annual Waterfront Festival, hosted by the College’s Center for Environment & Society. Students design and build their own vessels to compete in the Cardboard Boat Regatta.
On-campus activities include the Academic Showcase featuring Poster Presentations, a dance presentation, Grad Fair, readings, athletic events, and productions by the Department of Drama.
