Tours, sports, open houses on tap for Family Weekend


Annual event showcases campus life and facilities

Family Weekend is here and, as usual, there are plenty of events scheduled on campus — including the chance to take a peak inside the University of Missouri’s oldest building. Built in 1867, the Residence on Francis Quadrangle is also home to MU Chancellor Brady Deaton and Mrs. Anne Deaton, who will welcome students and families at their annual open house Saturday from 10 a.m. til noon. 

That’ll give you time to get over to Faurot Field for the Tiger’s game against Miami (Ohio), which kicks off at 1 p.m. Discount tickets are sold out, but seats are available at or by calling 1-800-CAT-PAWS. 

If the other “football” is more your style, check out the Mizzou soccer team as it takes on traditional rival Kansas at 6:30 p.m. at Audrey Walton Stadium. Tickets are free to students with a valid student ID, $5 for adults and $3 for children. 

One goal of Family Weekend is to allow parents an opportunity to visit the schools and campus facilities in which their children presumably spend most of their time. Here’s a sampling of tours and open houses, all free:
