General Announcements for Students,
Faculty, & Staff

The Majors & Minors Fair provides students with an opportunity to meet with faculty and professional advisors to discuss a variety of possible majors as well as many available career opportunities connected to each major. Representatives include professors, advisors, current students and student ambassadors who are ready to speak with you. Stop by if you are confused about your current major or minor, looking to explore other opportunities or want to pick up a second major.

This fair offers a great opportunity to find out about required courses, faculty-to-student ratio, minimum GPA, opportunities for non-majors to take classes, career prospects for that major, professional affiliations, student organizations and the process of switching majors.

On Saturday, October 28th from 1pm-5pm Student Involvement will be hosting its annual Student Leader Academy. This event is a FREE, On-Campus Leadership Conference for ALL Texas Tech students to learn more about who they are as leaders, build their personal leadership skills, and make connections with other Red Raiders. The Student Leader Academy includes a welcome, educational breakout sessions, closing keynote speaker, and time for networking with other campus leaders. The Student Leader Academy is designed to impact everyone - from emerging, to accomplished leaders - so all Texas Tech students are encouraged to register and attend.

Witnesses To The Holocaust

The Office of the President at Texas Tech University invites you to join us as we commemorate the narratives of Texas veterans of the Second World War who helped to liberate the concentration camps. The Texas Liberator Project, a research venture generously supported by the Texas holocaust and Genocide Commission, honors the desire of these liberators for a new generation to remember and learn the history of the Holocaust. The program will feature a visit to the exhibit and a presentation that shares some of the oral testimonies of the veterans and celebrates the global launch of the app and the website.
