Family Weekend|September 28-30, 2018

We have a lot of fun things planned for Family Weekend this year!

Family involvement and support is extremely important to students as they pursue their college degree. At SIU Carbondale, we want family members to share in the Saluki experience by not only becoming involved in activities on campus, but by learning about issues their students may be going through, remaining aware of important dates, etc. 

How can you become more involved in your student’s college experience? Check out all the resources available on our website, and sign up for the Saluki Family Newsletter. Families are also invited to attend New Student Orientation with their student to receive special family member and supporter resources and attend sessions specially designed to help you support your Saluki.

For families who would like to continue their connection to the University after their student’s first year, the SIU Alumni Association and the Saluki Family Association have teamed up to better serve students, families, and alumni of Southern Illinois University . This partnership increases communication between families and Southern, provides on and off-campus opportunities to families to get involved, and continues to provide the availability of various local and national business discounts.

After your initial year in the Saluki Family Association, we encourage you to join the SIU Alumni Association to continue to be a part of the SIU family!
