Favorite thing about CASNR/TTU: My favorite thing about Texas Tech is how the university, and the part of Lubbock that surrounds it, are geared to the success of the students at Texas Tech. In CASNR this is especially the case. From being the only college on campus to have professors as your advisors, to having the most scholarship opportunities per student, to having the Dr. Bill Bennett Student Success Center in the Dean's Office, CASNR is set up to do everything it can to help ensure that its students are equipped to be as successful as possible.

Advice for future students: My advice to future students is that you are going to mess up. It doesn't matter if you were an honor roll student, salutatorian or even valedictorian, messing up, falling down, and failing is inevitable. Messing up and falling is ok, because when you fall that is your chance to get back up and learn to be better than you were before.
