Family Days

Homecoming and Family Weekend is a time-honored tradition at Roger Williams University. Our planning committee, in conjunction with the Division of Student Life, has reimagined Homecoming and Family Weekend 2020 to allow everyone to enjoy the festivities in as safe a manner as possible. 

We are excited to welcome our families to campus for Family Days, which will take place here on campus over the course of three Saturdays: September 26, October 3, and October 10, 2020. We ask that each family choose only one Saturday to attend so that each family can safely visit and enjoy our campus community.

On Family Days, we'll offer a wide array of experiences for students and families to enjoy, such as:

  • Walking tours of campus with a scavenger hunt and chances to win prizes 
  • Student performances 
  • "Make & Take" arts and crafts to-go bags for kids
  • Keepsake photos
  • Self-guided tours of Bristol with audio
  • A list of local attractions and restaurants to enjoy off campus

Questions about Family Days can be answered by contacting Student Programs, Leadership, & Orientation (SPLO) at (401) 254-3088 or
