The following newsletter is sent out every week if there is information happening on campus or in the community
that students, student organizations, faculty, and staff can benefit from. 

Student Involvement Weekly

Center for Campus Life | |  (806) 742-5433

General Announcements for Students,
Faculty, & Staff

The Center for Campus Life is hosting a Yard Sale that Texas Tech students and student organizations can participate in to raise money for Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts or a cause of their choice. We know that students have wanted to help but do not always have the money to donate. This way students can collect personal items that are in good condition and participate in this large yard sale to raise money for the cause. Most agencies are not accepting donated items because they do not have the volunteers or the space to put them so this way the collected items can still be utilized.

If you or your organization is interested in participating please REGISTER. If you have any questions that are not answered in the registration please email

Saturday, October 14 - 10am-1pm 
- Well-woman exams and consultations with TTUHSC physicians 
- Breast exams, pelvic exams and pap smears 
- Mammogram sign-up and referrals
