The Right College For Your Student

Visit Your Student

Under normal circumstances, there are many opportunities to visit your student on campus during the academic year. However, COVID-19 has impacted our ability to host visitors at many of our events.

Here are some of our most attended annual events and traditions:

After helping your student move into their residence hall, they officially begin Bulldog Orientation. Parents and families are invited to get a crash course on Student Life & Learning at TLU during Parent & Family Orientation.

Parting from your student after a long summer with them is always difficult the first few weeks of the fall semester. That's why we invite you back to campus to spend time with your student during Family Weekend, an event that takes place during our Alumni & Family Weekend celebrations in September or October.

Check the events calendar often to see when there is an event on campus you would be interested in attending. Each semester, TLU brings speakers, artists and performers to enrich the campus culture. One of our biggest academic events is the Annual Krost Symposium, which tackles different social, economic and cultural topics each year. You also will not want to miss our Christmas Vespers concert featuring the TLU choirs. As your student approaches the end of their time at TLU, they will have the opportunity to present their senior project at the Annual Student Academic Symposium in the spring prior to graduation.

If you can't make it to campus, you'll want to know when your student may be coming home for breaks. All of the important dates pertaining to classes and university holidays are included on the academic calendar.
