What We Are About

The Parents' Association is a place where parents, family members, and friends can gather to support their SHSU student.  There are several opportunities to be involved. 

All monies raised through various activities go directly to scholarships for students whose parents and families are members of the association.


Saturdays at Sam - SHSUPA volunteers meet and greet prospective students and parents at the Saturday's at Sam event.

Orientation - SHSUPA volunteers meet and greet new students and parents at each of the freshman orientation sessions in the summer.

Parent's Weekend - September 13, 2014 is also our annual meeting at 10:00am in the LSC 320.

Tailgating - SHSUPA tailgates at all home football games to sell merchandise to raise funds for scholarships.

SHSU Homecoming Weekend - SHSUPA has a booth at the tailgate party before the football game during SHSU Homecoming.

Apple Days - SHSUPA volunteers pass out free apples, candy, and scantrons to SHSU students, the week before exams, each fall and spring semesters.
