True Blue Weekend



When will registration open?

Registration for True Blue Weekend typically opens in early to mid-August prior. Keep an eye on the True Blue Weekend website and on your email and social media for updates on events and schedules.

When will the True Blue Weekend schedule be available?

The schedule is available on the True Blue Weekend website in early June and will be continuously updated over the summer. Each year, approximately 80 to 100 events take place for alumni and families. Preliminary schedules are released in September, and updates are added throughout the fall leading up to True Blue Weekend. While schedules are available at the registration table for campus visitors, the most up-to-date schedule will always be found on the True Blue Weekend website.

How are True Blue Weekend dates determined?

  • Fall is a busy time on F&M’s campus; when selecting a date for True Blue Weekend, College staff look at the academic calendar, athletic schedules, College ceremonies and events and more in an attempt to find times that work for the majority of our alumni and parent audiences.

  • F&M is mindful that Rosh Hashanah concludes at sundown on Friday, October 4. Several major True Blue Weekend activities have been moved from Friday to Saturday. There will be special opportunities for our Jewish community to come together on campus to commemorate the holiday and to enjoy Shabbat that evening.
