The TU Parent & Family Association (commonly called TUPFA) exists to help parents and families stay informed about life at The University of Tulsa, to create an opportunity for parents to connect with students and the campus, and to provide support for families as they go through their own transitions with a student away at college.
The guides below provide information about helping your student transition to college, answer questions about orientation and move-in and introduce you to resources that you can use throughout the academic year.
TUPFA is run by volunteers who are parents and families of current TU students, and who work closely with the professional staff in New Student Programs and Services, especially focusing on the early years of student transition into the campus community.
We would like to encourage both new and returning parents to become active in the TU Parent and Family Association. You will have the chance to build relationships with other TU parents, stay informed about campus life, and maybe even offer support to other parents and families as they send their student to TU.
The quickest way to learn more about TUPFA would be to visit the TU Parent & Family Association’s Facebook page (no Facebook account is necessary). Or, feel free to contact the New Student Programs office at 918-631-2707 or email us at ParentsOrg@utulsa.edu.
