The Office of Parent and Family Services plans family-centered events every year to ensure that families have the chance to explore campus through the lens of their UTA student. Our family-centered events often entail athletic events, family-friendly activities, engaging demonstrations, and spirited competitions. Each family-centered event combines structured activities and free time to create a memorable and fun experience for the entire family!

The years of hard work and dedication will culminate in ceremonies with rich academic tradition.
