Parents of New Freshmen and FTP Students
Click here for Parent Drive-In reservations! The Parent Drive-In is the one-stop orientation for parents and family members of incoming TU freshmen. Parents will have the opportunity to learn about some of the key transitional issues of incoming students and talk with TU staff.
Information focuses on general developmental issues related to new students, and is specifically designed for the families that are sending a student off to college for the first time.
Families who have already sent a student to college may hear information they already know. The program is for parents and family only and is not intended for the incoming student. This allows parents to ask all of those embarrassing questions without embarrassing their student.
There is no charge for this program.
