Potsdam Prepared: COVID-19 Updates

Family Welcome

SUNY Potsdam welcomes families to visit campus anytime! In lieu of a traditional “Family Weekend”, the Potsdam community is embracing a more flexible and inclusive model which welcomes families to visit any weekend/day during the academic semester.

Want to catch your child’s performance at Crane? We’d love to have you! Interested in seeing a sporting event at Maxcy? Come cheer on the Bears! Have a birthday to celebrate? Join your student for dinner on campus or in one of our great local restaurants!

Let us know you’re coming by filling out the Family Welcome Information Form (available in mid-late August). We’ll have a special visitor’s packet waiting for you, including bookstore coupons, dining information, campus map and more!

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, please visit Potsdam-Prepared (and messages to students) for the most current campus guidance.
