The mission of the ETSU Family Association, Buccaneer Family, is to become an organization that will give parents and family members of ETSU students the opportunity to connect with campus as well as the community. Buccaneer Family will also provide a support system that facilitates sending a student off to college and a partnership that connects the family to the university, a contact through which parents can ask questions and make suggestions.
Membership in the Buccaneer Family provides families with a network of staff and parents to support and assist them, frequent newsletters/emails that contain pertinent campus information, family weekend, athletic and special event discounts, a dedicated phone line, a discount card to be used at local businesses, and a Buccaneer Family packet.
When you join you will receive a Buccaneer Family welcome packet which will include: a car magnet, coffee mug, a tote bag, a pen, ETSU parent/grandparent button and a lapel pin.
You will also receive an ETSU Buccaneer Family membership card which will allow you to receive local discounts. Click the discount button below for a list of participating hotels and merchants.
