Family & Friends Weekend 2014: Oct. 10 - 12

LIM College students, faculty, staff, alumni and family members will come together October 10 - 12 for our fourth annual Family & Friends Weekend.

Family & Friends Weekend is an opportunity for parents, siblings, and friends to experience a slice of LIM College life by participating in three days’ worth of exciting events on the LIM College campus and in New York City.

The festivities will begin on Friday, October 10 at 7 pm in LIM’s Maxwell Hall with Vegas Night, where you can play casino games to win prizes, see an amazing illusionist, and do karaoke. The evening’s big prize will be a $5,000 drawdown raffle. (You do not need to be present to win.)

On Saturday, October 11 at 9 am we will partner with a nonprofit organization to help give back to our community by cleaning up a local park. Also on Saturday, from 11 am to 3 pm, the LIM Iron Merchant Challenge, a competition between Visual Merchandising students to see who can create the best mannequin display, will be held at Maxwell Hall.

On Sunday, October 12 there will be a jazz brunch cruise offering amazing views of NYC landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and the Freedom Tower. You'll also have a chance to talk with President Marcuse, as well as our faculty, staff, and alumni. Boarding begins at noon at Pier 40 on the Hudson River (353 West Street). We will embark at 12:30 pm and return to Pier 40 at 2:30 pm. Seating is limited, so reserve your spot today.

Sign up here for all Family & Friends Weekend events.

These activities are open to LIM College students, and their families and friends, as well as faculty, staff and alumni. For more information email
