One of the elder buildings in Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources is getting a minor facelift this semester with the makeover of the courtyard area behind the CASNR Annex, formerly known as the old Animal and Food Sciences Building. The plaza project is part of Department of Landscape Architecture's 4404/5316 Materials and Details class.

No bands playing at halftime. No television exposure or big-money contracts. Yet these Texas Tech teams are some of the best and well-respected in the nation.
