McNeese Parents and Family Weekend

McNeese State University will host its annual Parents and Family Weekend Friday, Sept. 23, and Saturday, Sept. 24. Families are invited to campus to spend time with their students for a fun-filled weekend of tailgating and Cowboy athletics. 

On Friday, all are invited to the Cowboy Block Party at Alumni Grove to watch Three Thirty-Seven perform from 7-10:30 p.m. with gates opening at 6 p.m.

On Saturday, McNeese volleyball will face off against Northwestern State at 1 p.m. in the Legacy Center. A pre-game tailgate will be held at 3 p.m. followed by McNeese vs. Mississippi College at 7 p.m. at Cowboy Stadium. This package for family members costs $40 per person and will include access to all activities, a shirt for the game and food at the tailgate.
