Freshman Orientation (SOAR)

Parent & Guest Information

Congratulations! Your student has chosen to join a wonderful family here at Tennessee Tech University. We are excited about the many opportunities that await all of our students in 2021. Parent & Guest Orientation is part of the freshman SOAR program and allows you to meet faculty, administrators, and staff who will be working with your student during their college career.

Maybe this is your first child to attend college, or maybe you're an "old pro" at the college process. Either way, you're probably a little apprehensive about sending your student to college. You may still have questions about what your student needs to do next to ensure they have a smooth transition to Tech. This could include wondering who will help your student register for classes, where they will eat meals, or just have some fun. All of these questions, and more, will be answered at Parent & Guest Orientation this summer during SOAR.

Have questions about SOAR?

We want to ensure all of your questions are answered and that your mind is at ease before your student comes to campus for their orientation session. Make sure to check out the  Parent & Guest Frequently Asked Questions! 

Parent Association

You will have the opportunity to learn more about and join the Tennessee Tech Parent Association (TTUPA) during your student's SOAR session. The TTUPA is a great way for parents to stay involved in their student's college experience by staying up-to-date with what's happening on campus and monthly email communications with important dates and other helpful information. We can't wait to meet you at SOAR!
