The College of Family and Consumer Sciences will host the third annual FACS Week, the signature event of the college that celebrates communities, academic excellence and the future of families, Oct. 14-20.

FACS Week kicks off with a Homecoming tailgate Oct. 14 prior to the game against Missouri, which also marks the official "countdown" to the FACS centennial celebration of 2018.
Various events throughout the week, including an open house on Oct. 16 and guest lectures addressing a range of issues, will offer opportunities for engagement.

The FACS Alumni Association will host the annual Dogs with the Dean event on Oct. 19 in front of Dawson Hall, featuring an appearance by Hairy Dawg and a massive delivery of chili dogs from The Varsity.

Following Dogs with the Dean, the college will host the "Learn. Grow. Go. Showcase," an event designed to highlight student opportunities within the college such as internships, undergraduate research, serving-learning and more.

FACS also will honor its donors, students and faculty on Oct. 20 at the Celebrating Excellence luncheon held at the Tate Student Center's Grand Hall.

"FACS Week is both a celebration of the college as well as an opportunity to learn and look ahead to where the College of Family and Consumer Sciences is going in the future," said FACS Dean Linda Kirk Fox. "We're excited about the diversity of events scheduled that mirror the disciplines we cover and look forward to showcasing our college and engaging with a broad audience."

Most events are free, and drop-in attendance is welcome with the exception of the Homecoming tailgate and Celebrating Excellence awards luncheon.
