Scholars Weekend Schedule

 

Here’s the plan for Scholars Weekend

In addition to connecting future Mocs with the Florida Southern community, Scholars Weekend also offers events for parents and other family members.

Scholars Weekend Schedules

The January and February 2-day Scholars Weekend program officially begins on Friday at 4:00 PM and concludes on Saturday at 2:00 PM with special activities happening throughout the day on Friday, including scholarship interviews for selected finalists and optional classroom observations.

Overnight accommodations are available on Friday for any student desiring to stay on campus with a host student.
