Students aren’t the only ones going through big changes during the college years. Parents and families also going through a transition when their student joins the campus community at TU. Each fall we offer a few different meetings and events to help parents and families learn more about campus life, and to help with this transition.
Below you’ll see the schedule for this Fall’s move-in day and Orientation kick off. Everything for parents takes place on August 18th. Please note, new students see a different schedule on the ConnectTU app with student and group-specific programs (available in early August).
There are some easy ways to stay connected with everything going on at The University of Tulsa for and with parents, including:
- Follow the TUPFA Facebook page (TUPFA stands for the TU Parent and Family Association).
- Sign-up for occasional emails from the TU Parent and Family Association.
- Follow @utulsa and @StartTU19 on Twitter as well!
