Welcome to the Firehawk family.
Family Engagement in the Office of the Dean of Students helps all members of the Firehawk Family from the time that their student is admitted to the University until they graduate. We provide communications and engaging programs to help families stay connected with their student’s college experience.
Family Weekend is one of our favorite parts of Homecoming, a weekend when all our past, present, and future Firehawks flock to campus! Family Weekend 2022 is scheduled for September 30 – October 1. More details, including information on how to register, are coming soon!

RAVE Alert is UT Southern’s text message-based emergency notification system. It allows recipients to quickly receive emergency communications and other important information via text message. Notifications may be about inclement weather alerts or emergency incidents on campus. All faculty, staff and students that have provided the University with a cellular telephone number will be automatically enrolled in the RAVE Alert system.
If parents or families members would also like to receive RAVE Alerts, they may subscribe here! (Note that this form is used for both Notes from the Nest and RAVE Alert subscriptions.)
Knowing what our Firehawk families expect of the University is important to us so that we can tailor our communications, programs, and initiatives to your needs! To complete the 2022 Family Expectation Survey, click here!
