Plan to join your student at their home-away-from-home!
Known for its rich history of spice production, the island nation of Grenada is one of the world’s largest exporters of nutmeg and mace – but spice production is only a small part of the history and culture of this amazing nation.
St. George’s University Family Weekend takes you beyond spice for an insider’s view of the island, its people and the university. Our beautiful True Blue campus in Grenada, West Indies will play host to the families of our enrolled students. See the campus, meet the administration and experience what the beautiful island of Grenada has to offer.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at St. George’s University Family Weekend 2013.
Family Weekend guests, we invite you to stop by and join us for the Grand Opening of the St. George's University Bookstore, which has a wide array of SGU apparel and merchandise from which to choose.
