TCU Parents Association
2017 Student Move-In
The TCU Parents Association will be helping out again this year with first-time students and parents as students move-in to one of our residence
halls on campus. Parents welcoming new parents (and students) to our TCU community has fast become a marquee event on campus. Specific volunteer duties include directing folks inside our residence halls and to nearby areas of interest/need, handing out waters, helping to unpack cars and setting up new rooms. Absolutely a lot of fun and so appreciated by students, parents and the University.
This August roughly 2,100 incoming students will be moving into the Residence Halls on campus including into our newest sorority and fraternity houses in Worth Hills. Specifically assigned move-in days for freshman and new transfer students are Wednesday 8/9, Saturday 8/12 and Wednesday 8/16. If you would like to help out, please contact David Doll by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A complimentary TCU Parents Association T-shirt will be provided to all volunteers.
The goal of the TCU Parents Association, which is open to parents and guardians of all TCU students, is to act as a resource to inform, connect, engage, and empower parents to support the successful development of all TCU students and to affirm the mission of the University. The association will accomplish this goal by providing assistance to parents in the following ways:
- Helping parents in the transition time when a student begins college and throughout their college years;
- Providing communication and resource information about the University and its goals, objectives, and activities;
- Providing an opportunity for parents to network with other parents;
- Providing support for University programs and activities as necessary; and
- Enabling parents to assist their student with his/her career and a life-long partnership with the University.
