Parents Association Calendar of Events
These are events coordinated by or benefit members of the Parents Association.
The Parents Association hosts monthly meetings that help parents explore the University and learn about different benefits and opportunities that UTEP offers. We often visit different buildings/departments on campus to help acquaint parents with the University, a keynote speaker is presented along with information that UTEP parents may find interesting.
This event is hosted by the UTEP Parents Association and invites all Parents Association members and participants from Parents Orientation for a mix and mingle with fellow parents, UTEP administration and the opportunity to meet President Natalicio. This event often takes place at the Hoover House, the residence of the UTEP President Diana Natalicio.
Home Football Tailgate (Fall semester)
The Alumni Association hosts a Tailgate before each UTEP home football game with food, fun, and Miner Pride. UTEP Parents Association members receive the same discounted rates as Alumni Association members. Parties start three hours before kick-off and end 30 minutes before game time.
