Family Weekend

Thank you to all who attended Family Weekend 2017!

Catch the Captains Spirit!

Christopher Newport University students take great pride in their university and look forward to sharing with you the energy, excitement, enthusiasm and Captains spirit that will abound during Family Weekend October 20–22, 2017.

Join us for the numerous activities we have scheduled for the entire family. Tour campus, visit your son or daughter’s residence hall, attend a show or cheer on the Captains to victory. There are so many opportunities for you to take advantage of during the weekend and we hope you will join us for what is sure to be a weekend you will remember for many years to come.
