Parent & Family Connection Program

About the Parent and Family Connection Program

The Parent and Family Connection Program is an event for students and families, with a focus on first-year in college to second-year transition.

This year's program will be hosted in the University Union. The program will feature a keynote address along with presentations from campus student services. The goal of this program is to encourage you to start thinking about the next phase of college life and to begin to plan the key student milestones that are important in the college experience.


The February event  was cancelled due to inclement weather in the North Texas region. We are excited to announce that the event is rescheduled for Saturday, April 9. See details below.
