Family Weekend & Academic Symposium

Parents, alumni and friends are invited to visit Saint Michael's for our Family Weekend, Open House, and Academic Symposium.

Academic Symposium 2013

The Family Weekend includes honor society inductions, athletic events, musical presentations, a theatrical performance of "Dead Man Walking," and a crafts fair to raise money for international service learning trips. View the schedule below, or download the family weekend program.

The Accepted Students Open House welcomes high school seniors who have been accepted at the college. 

Saint Michael's annual Academic Symposium features students presenting academic research through poster sessions and student-led presentations. This event coincides with Undergraduate Research Week 2013, sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research, which recognizes high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.
 
For more details on the Symposium, see the department presentation schedule, guide to the poster sessions, and the list of presenters.

Spring Play, "Dead Man Walking"
McCarthy Arts Center
(limited seating available)

This play written by Tim Robbins is based on SIster Helen Prejean's book about her experiences as a champlain on death row. Rather than having the play produced professionally, Robbins offered it to schools throughout the United States to foster discussion about the death penalty. This intense, thought-provoking and moving drama contains mature content and language.
