Take a Parent to Lunch
Take a Parent To Lunch (TAPTL)
A summer program where UNL faculty and staff volunteer to escort and host the parents of incoming students for lunch.
Parents consistently evaluate TAPTL as one of their favorite parts of their NSE day as they enjoy the opportunity to speak informally to UNL staff and faculty.
- We'll pick you up from your informational session and walk you to the dining hall.
- Ask us any questions you have about UNL and your student’s transition to college.
- If we don't have the answer, we'll make sure we connect you to the correct resource.
Parents do not need to register for this program.
