Family Weekend

Welcome, MVNU families!

Family Weekend is an opportunity for families of Mount Vernon Nazarene University students to experience the rich variety of activities on campus and in Knox County.

Come and get a taste of what your student is experiencing at MVNU. Tour the campus, enjoy breakfast with other parents, attend athletic competitions, visit MVNU’s Schnormeier Gallery, eat a meal with students in the dining commons, enjoy the beauty of various sites in Mount Vernon and Knox County, and don’t miss the annual OAKtoberfest activities.

This annual gathering is an exciting time on campus and we look forward to seeing you.

Please register online as soon as possible to help us prepare for your visit. If you have any questions, contact Wendi Lahmon at, or call 740-397-9000, ext. 4602.
