Oct. 11-14 will be filled with more than 200 programs, including lectures, panels, performances, exhibits, and campus activities, as part of the University of Rochester's Meliora Weekend. Class reunions, homecoming, and family weekend are all combined for one festive fall celebration of the University for about 7,000 registered guests, including alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends.

A full schedule of the weekend can be found at www.rochester.edu/melioraweekend/.

Among the Meliora Weekend program highlights are:

The weekend festivities carry the name of Meliora, the University's motto meaning "ever better." Adding to the student spirit of the weekend, sophomore Bonnie Nortz will be "yarn bomb" decorating six trees in Dandelion Square. And the Student Alumni Ambassadors volunteer group will be installing chain-link fence art into the fence surrounding Fauver Stadium.
