TAMIU Hosts Future Dustdevil Car Parade for Graduating HS Seniors Thursday



While the ongoing pandemic has postponed celebratory events for high school seniors across the nation, Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) is looking to recognize and celebrate the Class of 2021. 

Graduating high school seniors are invited to attend the Future Dustdevil Car Parade, happening Thursday, May 6 from 6 – 8 p.m. Individuals should sign-up to attend the event by visiting  

The Car Parade offers high school seniors a chance to connect with TAMIU staff members who will help guide them through the process of becoming full-fledged Dustdevils. 

“Our Future Dustdevils have had a different senior year. Here at TAMIU, we are looking forward to celebrating all their accomplishments and embracing them in their new home,” said Jessica Treviño, director of the Office of Recruitment and School Relations.  

During the Car Parade, individuals will drive through the University Loop that encircles the campus. Throughout their drive, they’ll be greeted by colorful balloon displays and University staff members. 

Parade-goers are encouraged to decorate their vehicles and showcase the University’s school spirit by sporting maroon, silver and gold. Decorated cars will receive an additional goodie and will enter a social media contest for the opportunity to receive an additional prize.

Along the Car Parade route, participating staff from different University departments will hand out prizes including T-shirts, spirit swag and food. 

Parade-goers will end their route at the TAMIU Unfinished Stop. There, they will have an opportunity to park in a designated area where members of the University’s Office of Recruitment and School Relations will assist them with any questions related to their admission, financial aid or registration. Students will also have a chance to schedule their appointments for campus tours or in-person registration. 

In an effort to maintain the health and safety for all individuals at the Car Parade, every parade participant should remain in their vehicle and all are asked to use a face covering while on campus.
