The Office of New Student & Family Programs recognizes that parents and families play an integral role in the successful transition of your student to ETSU. The Buccaneer Family Association (BFA) is a way for you to be informed and involved as partners in the education of your student. BFA connects you to the departments and people that play an active role in the lives of our students. We believe the more informed you are about ETSU, the better resource you can be for your student.
Membership in BFA provides parents and families with the resources, information, and opportunities to support their student’s learning, empower their students to take personal responsibility for social and academic choices, and understand their student’s experience at ETSU.
When you join BFA, you will receive a welcome packet including a 2016-17 parent and family calendar, ETSU tote bag, BFA travel mugs, and much more. You will also receive a BFA membership card which will allow you to receive local discounts at participating hotels and merchants.
Thank you for all that you do to support your student and our office in carrying on our mission of fostering belonging and excitement for new ETSU students.
