  • SHSU Parents Association


The Parents' Association was first originated in 1925 when Sam Houston State Teachers College celebrated it's first Parents' Day.  It was such a success that the association elected officers and officially became the Parents' Association on November 5, 1926.  It later became incorporated in 1979 as a non-profit association whose membership consists of parents and friends of students of Sam Houston State University.


Sam Houston State University Parents' Association exists to provide the opportunity and vehicle for cooperative participation in activities and matters which demonstrate that caring continues when students leave home to pursue higher education. 

Parents' Association Reminders:

Apple Days are Monday and Tuesday prior to the start of finals during the Fall and Spring semesters.  This is an association sponsored event to help all students with nourishments, scantrons, and a friendly face during finals.
