The 2022 Committee is an awesome group of students who are already working to plan a great weekend for Families on Sept. 16-18, 2022!

Meet the 2022 Executive Co-Chairs:

Jensen Friedman ’23

Jensen is an English Literature major with a Psychology minor from Baltimore County, MD. She is on the Music and Coffeehouse Committee of the Lafayette Activities Forum, and holds a Director role in her sorority, Pi Beta Phi, as well as a spot on the Panhellenic Judicial Board. Her love for planning and creating a fun, welcoming community is what drives her involvement on campus, and as a three-year member of the Family Weekend Committee she is a perfect choice to help lead  as one of our two Co-Chairs for 2022!

Juliette Guanci ’23

Juliette is a Mechanical Engineering major with a minor in Architectural Studies from Wakefield, MA. She is on the Class Year Experience Committee of the Lafayette Activities Forum and a member of Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority.

About the student-led Family Weekend Committee
Students are invited to apply each year to interview to be selected as a member of the Family Weekend Committee. Based on student interests, members are assigned to subcommittees, such as Promotions, Entertainment, Panels, Community, and more.

Committee participation is a learning and growth opportunity for members; outcomes include valuing other-centered program planning, developing program planning skills, and getting to know their institution and community better.
