The Retention Management and Planning Office is looking for staff, faculty or students to assist with Welcome Tents scheduled for Monday, August 28 and Tuesday, August 29.
Welcome Tents is an event that occurs during the first two days of every long semester to help new and returning students find classes, hand out academic planners, and give information about campus resources.
We are also collecting giveaway items to hand out to students during Welcome Tents. If you have items to share or have questions about Welcome Tents, please email Emma Carberry at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Retention Management and Planning Office at 512-245-5500.
