Special Note on This Year's Schedule

We're aware that the date for Friends and Family Weekend 2014 corresponds with the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We've set up several special events for those able to join us for this weekend (denoted with the § symbol), and will make every effort in the future to avoid such conflicts. Please direct any questions to spa@stetson.edu.
