For this year’s MTSU Family Weekend Oct. 28-29, participants can “mix and match their favorite events to make their own personalized experience,” said Mark Murphy, interim coordinator of the University’s New Student and Family Programs.

Family Weekend will kick off Friday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. with the 2010 Sun Belt Conference volleyball champion Blue Raiders facing North Texas in Alumni Memorial Gym. Family Weekend will end Saturday, Oct. 29, with a 7:30 p.m. presentation of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” in the Boutwell Dramatic Arts Building’s Tucker Theatre.

In between, there will be plenty of food, including tailgating and an all-you-can-eat Cajun feast, and fun leading up to the 6:30 p.m. Sun Belt football matchup between MTSU and the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns in Floyd Stadium.

Parents and families are encouraged to visit their students and participate in the various campus events and activities throughout the weekend, Murphy said.
