For parents and families

All Tennessee Wesleyan orientation times have a family track that will provide sessions to inform families of the variety of services TWU has to offer students. Parent and family attendance is not required, but we strongly encourage participation. Parents and students will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Financial Aid during Orientation.
