Geneva College’s Family Weekend is on Friday, Nov. 7 and Saturday, Nov. 8, which is right around the corner. It will be a great time for the families and friends of students to experience Geneva College. According to Director of Parent Relations Louise Copeland, the response so far has been wonderful, with hundreds of guests already registered.

Tickets are still available for the Broadway Revue shows on Friday and Saturday. The Broadway Revue will showcase students’ talents as they perform pieces from both popular and classic musicals. Tickets in advance cost $6 for adults and $3 for students. Tickets bought at the door are $7 for adults and $4 for students. The revue is open to the public.

Immediately following the Broadway Revue on Friday night, students and their families are invited to an ice cream social in the dining hall portion of Alexander Hall. There is no charge for the social, but reservations are required.

Pre-ordered tickets for all events, including the football game, must be picked up at the registration table on November 7 between 4:30 and 7:00 p.m. in the lower level of Alexander Hall, or on November 8 between 8:30 and 10:00 a.m. in the upper level of Alexander Hall. 

Both the buffet dinner on Friday and the brunch on Saturday are at capacity with attendees, so tickets are no longer available for either event.
