Family Weekend is Open to All

Tech’s family weekend will be Sept. 27-28. Most events are free to attend and are open to all Tech families.

There will be a silent auction Friday, Sept. 27. The Golden Eagle women’s volleyball team will face Murray State in the same evening and a family movie will be shown in Derryberry Auditorium.

Saturday’s events include a scavenger hunt, live reptile exhibit, student organization showcase, and the Golden Eagle football game versus Indiana State.

Family weekend also offers parents the opportunity to join TTU’s Parent Association. 

Allen Mullis, interim coordinator for Student and Family Programs, said, “There are about 1,400 members in the TTUPA right now.  If parents sign up on family weekend, they receive 2 tickets to the family weekend football game.”

Kellie Burke is a TTU student whose parents are Parent Association members. Burke said, “My parents came to family weekend last year and joined the parents’ association. It was fun.”
