Family Weekend

Family Weekend

October 8-10, 2021

Families of students were invited to enjoy a beautiful fall weekend on campus in October. They had the opportunity to eperience school traditions like Step Songs at Main Hall and a bonfire on Tippetts Beach, attend classes, see a Stony Batter Players performance of the play Lost in Yonkers, and cheer on our Blue Storm athletes. Other highlights during Family Weekend included college counseling sessions for parents, a tailgate lunch featuring the inaugural “Mercersburger” competition, and a Chapel service.

Mercersburger Competition

This year we tried something new! We asked the community to submit burger recipes for consideration. Students prepped the recipes in our Mercersburg Test Kitchen (the True Blue Café), a panel of judges narrowed the list down to three finalists that went head-to-head during Family Weekend, and attendees got to pick the winner! Find out who won!
