Every Weekend is

Family Weekend 

SFA Mother and DaughterSFA and the City of Nacogdoches are family. While it's no easy feat to send your student to another town, rest assured that the Nacogdoches Community is here with open arms and the best resources to make sure they feel right at home.

In the past, SFA and the Nacogdoches Community have teamed up to have one Family Weekend bash. But with safety in mind, community leaders have deemed "Every Weekend is Family Weekend."

Visit Nacogdoches is your source for things to do, places to eat, and itineraries for any weekend you come to visit. We've partnered with local shops,restaurants and lodging to offer special discounts for family members for SFA Students. Check back often as new deals will be added throughout the semester.
