Crumpton-Young. “We know Texas Southern University attracts some of the best and brightest students from around the nation and many countries across the world.Enrollment numbers will not be final until early September, but the University projects a freshman class that will become the largest on record, in addition to a significant increase in the number of transfer students.New students began their time at TSU with Tiger Transformation Week (August 15-19), five days of activities to learn the University’s history and make final preparations for the first day of class. New Student Move-In Day took place on Sunday, August 14 (pictured above is President Crumpton-Young with a pair of new Tigers during the move-in event).
