Welcome Tents - Fall 2019

The Retention Management and Planning Office is looking for staff, faculty or students to assist with Welcome Tents scheduled for Monday, August 26 and Tuesday, August 27, 2019.

Welcome Tents is an event that occurs during the first two days of every long semester to help new and returning students find classes, answer questions, 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 Miguel Arellano Arriaga at arellano@txstate.edu or call the Retention Management and Planning Office at 512-245-5500.

Please meet at the electronic sign at the Quad (except 8:00 AM shift, which will meet at the Retention Management & Planning Office) at the beginning of your shift. Dress for the weather and to be comfortable standing! If weather appropriate please wear a TXST shirt and a name badge. You will receive more information via email the week prior to your shift.
