Students and family members will be separated for portions of the morning but will rejoin each other for afternoon activities. During this time, family members will take a traditional tour of campus. 

Your day should end somewhere between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and should definitely include a trip to the JMU Bookstore to stock up on all the purple and gold you can find!
