Students and parents relax with a massage and cool drink after a long move-in day,
meet other families and university administrators at the free event.
The Aloha Party welcomes all parents and family members of incoming or returning students
as they move in to the residence halls for the fall 2008 semester.
Texas Tech Parents Association and the Office of Parent and Family Relations
will host the annual Aloha Party from 3-4:30 p.m. Sunday (Aug. 17) at the Frazier
Alumni Pavilion, across from Jones AT&T Stadium.
The residence halls open at 10 a.m. Sunday for students to begin moving in. Classes
begin Aug. 25.
This is a free event that is geared to assist all parents and family members of incoming
or returning students as they move in to the residence halls for the fall 2008 semester.
There will be complimentary massages, free food and sodas, a cash bar and a relaxing
environment to connect with other Texas Tech parents and families.
All parents and families are encouraged to come and meet other family members and
university administrators at this come-and-go event.
“Texas Tech is an institution that values and encourages strong parental and family
involvement in all that Texas Tech has to offer,” said Ken Gassiot, associate director
for Parent and Family Relations. “The benefits of an engaged family member only encourages
students to transition faster into university life and also stay focused to the ultimate
goal of graduation.”
