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.

Be sure to pack comfortable clothes and a jacket or sweater. If you are staying on campus, you’ll also need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, and personal toiletries.
