Parent/Family Weekend, September 30 - October 1, 2016

The KSC Parent/Family Weekend is a wonderful opportunity for you to visit with your student, stroll campus, meet our campus leaders, and have a good time. We have planned events – including a few that are new this year – that we’re sure you’ll enjoy.


Throughout the weekend, there will be social opportunities, athletic events, and more. Additionally, the City of Keene is coordinating the Monadnock Fall Festival for the same weekend.
