Gear Up; Student Success Center rolls out newly-designed t-shirt
Two standout organizations housed within the Dr. Bill Bennett Student Success Center are set to dress you for success, or at minimum make it clear that you're easily identifiable with Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
The newly-designed $15 t-shirts (cash or check only) are sold by the Agri-Techsan organization as a fundraiser for the student group. The black t-shirt features the university's iconic mascot, the Masked Rider. Meantime, $15 baseball-style caps, which come in red, black or khaki and also highlight a Masked Rider logo, are being offered by the Ambassadors for Agriculture also as a fundraiser. Both may be purchased in the student success center, which is located in the CASNR Dean's Office (Goddard Building).
Both student organizations do yeoman's work in promoting the college, said Cindy Akers, CASNR's Associate Dean for Academic and Student Programs.
The Agri-Techsans are the official student recruiters for the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. The undergraduates can come from every department, and bring with them different backgrounds from rural areas to large metropolitan areas. They give tours of the college's facilities, including the horticultural gardens and the meat laboratory on campus, as well as the research farm at New Deal, and the Texas Tech Equestrian Center in southwest Lubbock.
The Ambassadors for Agriculture are dedicated to spreading the story of American agriculture and opportunities for youth in the broad fields of agriculture and natural resources. They're available to speak on motivational and informative topics relating to youth opportunities at banquets, high school assemblies or classes, commencement exercises, agricultural science classes, and other similar types of meetings, she said.
