Fall 2022 Preview
Each fall we host a handful of experiences and events for interested parents and family members of new TU students. This fall those events will take place after New Student Move-in on Wednesday, August 17.
Below you’ll see a schedule from previous years (this fall’s events will likely look different, but this timetable can help you plan for that day/evening). All events for parents and family members take place in the Reynolds Center.
3:00 – Meet Your Peer Mentor – New students will find their assigned Peer Mentor in specified sections and rows, while parents and family members choose from available seating in the sections above the students.
3:15 pm – “Oh the Places You Will Go” – a fun and insightful presentation for both students and family members.
