In the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at Texas Tech University, students pride themselves for being a small college that is very unique. With support from others and enthusiasm about the college, the CASNR Student Services Center decided to create a distinctive cotton T-shirt specifically for CASNR.
Rachel Bobbitt, coordinator of student programs, is responsible for sales and final design of the T-shirt. Bobbitt said when the shirts first started they were created to promote the college. But since the shirts have become so popular, it’s now a service to the students to provide the shirts.
“CASNR shirts are a great thing for our college,” Bobbitt said. “I believe having shirts keeps the student retention rate up in the college, versus using the T-shirts as a recruiting tool.”
Bobbitt said because the college is so small, having T-shirts adds awareness and students are able to represent themselves.
This year’s T-shirt portrays Raider Red on the front with the college name, and the back is a reflection of the front.
As Texas Tech continues to grow enrollment and strive for tier one status, T-shirts are able to help this mission become one step closer by striving to promote and represent their organizations and colleges.
