East Stroudsburg University invites ESU families of all kinds to enjoy time with us at Family Weekend 2022, September 23 to 25.

Family Weekend is a campus-wide celebration in honor of parents, grandparents, and extended family that will take place every September. This unique weekend experience will provide families with the opportunity to spend a fun time together, explore the campus, behold the beautiful Pocono scenery, and experience the wealth of activities that are in store.

Families can discover more about life at ESU by participating in the Warrior Bash and athletic contests, a full-dome video and sound show at McMunn Planetarium, tour of the University’s Schisler Museum of Wildlife and Natural History, Dansbury Commons dining, a classic car show, the Pocono Latin Fest, and so much more! Please visit our ESU Flikr albums to see pictures from weekend events in the past!
