On Friday morning of Parents’ Weekend (September 25–27), director of University photography Gary Wayne Gilbert and his team invited families to pose for a picture outside Devlin Hall.

Some 2,027 families registered for Parents’ Weekend—60 percent came to visit a freshman. Three families traveled from China, 167 from California, 374 from within Massachusetts. Freshman Emily Uus was visited by the largest contingent of kin, 14 family members.
