WSU Family Weekend

We are sad to announce that due to concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be hosting a family weekend for Fall 2020.

We hope that during the year you take time to visit WSU and Winona when you have the time!

If you are looking for something fun to do while you are visiting, check out what events are happening on campus.

If you are looking for something fun to do in town, we suggest taking a look at the Visit Winona website to see what is happening in Winona!
