November 13th - November 17th

Texas Tech University Women's & Gender Studies is proud to support Women's Empowerment Week . The intent of this week is to make connections, promote empowerment and highlight achievements for and by women. Check out Women's & Gender Studies website for a list of events. #TTUWEConnect

Start the spring semester off right by finding an organization to join! Come meet some of the best students at Texas Tech at the Winter Raider Welcome Student Organization Fair and find out more about getting involved on campus.

Raider Welcome is a week series of FUN and FREE events designed to welcome new and returning students to the Texas Tech campus. Raider Welcome occurs the week before classes start (after Residence Hall move-in) and throughout the first week of classes.

While Raider Welcome is coordinated by Transition & Engagement and University Student Housing, the week would not be successful without the support of campus departments and members of the Texas Tech and Lubbock communities. If your group would like to host an event during Raider Welcome, please complete this online Event Submission Form. Submissions are due Dec. 6th, 2017 at 5:00PM.

Final Student Org Risk Management Training

All student organizations are required to attend a Risk Management Training each year. If your organization did not attend the Student Org Academy in the spring or attend one of the trainings this past April you need to attend one of the trainings this fall to avoid being disabled. Check the LIST to see if your organization has completed the training and required assessment. If you are sure that your organization attended a training in the spring then the attendee has not completed the assessment. Follow these INSTRUCTIONS to see how to find and complete the assessment. The date listed on the instructions is for the Student Org Academy so if you attended
one of the later dates in April find that date instead.
