Event Details


By now, parents have received information from President Thomas regarding decisions made to ensure the safety and welfare of the Morehouse community in light of the Coronavirus Pandemic.  Given the precautionary measures the institution is taking, including the elimination of all campus events with an attendance of more than 250 people, Parents Weekend 2020 has been officially cancelled.

Parents should look for refunds on their registrations and other fees associated with the April 17-19 event in the next few days.  As a reminder, be sure to cancel any hotel reservations you might have made for Parents Weekend.

We had a robust registration this year and I want to thank you for the enormous interest you demonstrated in this highly anticipated annual family event.  I look forward to planning another exciting Parents Weekend for families of returning students in 2021. 

Until then, be well!
