|About Tech Parents|
Welcome to Texas Tech Parents Association!
Moving on to college represents a significant step towards adulthood for our daughters and sons. The end of high school marks the symbolic end of childhood. Parents know this phase of life as "the empty nest." Many parents talk enthusiastically about the changes - feeling less constrained, more free time, etc. Never-the-less, a sense of loss is apparent in comments such as, "It's so quiet around here" or, "I can't believe how much less I spend on groceries." We may find ourselves wandering into cleaned out bedrooms formerly in a state of chaos when lived in 24/7 by our students. Joy is mixed with longing as the young adult takes flight from home base.
Texas Tech Parents Association provides many programs and services to help parents support their students toward success! Whether it is keeping abreast of the most important events on campus or guiding them toward tutoring, writing centers, counseling center, mentoring, and career & academic advising, TTPA is here to help you navigate with them for the best experiences possible!
Everyone knows that attending college is a life-changing transition for students. Today, college is a family experience, not just for students but for their parents as well. Through their growing up years, students have relied on their parents. We are often expected to have every answer and remain cool, calm and collected at all times. However, like our students, parents need assistance, information, resources, services and support.
Like you, we are also parents who experience excitement and concern, pride and stress, a few sleepless nights and are sometimes downright confused about what lies ahead. Parents could really use some expert advice.
Be reassured; assistance is available for you!
