Holiday Gift Ideas

Holiday gifts with a Texas Tech twist.

Alumni Highlights

Written by Chad Elrod

You don’t have to fight the crowds this holiday season, because the Texas Tech Alumni Association has many different gift ideas for your friends and family. All proceeds go towards the Texas Tech Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.

Class Ring

Class Ring

The Official Texas Tech Class Ring makes a great gift for any graduate of Texas Tech. The ring is a tradition that has been brought back from the 1950s. This ring evokes special memories of the occasions and traditions of Texas Tech: the “Fight Song” sung at the stadium with the Masked Rider going hell-bent for leather along the sidelines, Raider Red giving fans the “Guns Up” and firing his shotguns and the unforgettable images created during the Carol of Lights where the red, white and orange holiday lights cast their spell over the campus. The ring is a symbolic, continuous link with classmates, friends and generations of alumni.

To order an official class ring, visit or contact Mandy Wiley at or by phone at 806.742.3641 ext. 243.

Diploma Frames

Diploma Frame

Texas Tech Diploma Frames make the perfect holiday gift because they allow someone you care for to proudly display their Texas Tech Diploma in grand style. The Texas Tech Diploma Frames start at $84.95. The Texas Tech Alumni Association has an extensive inventory from which you can choose. To order Texas Tech Diploma Frames visit or contact Mandy Wiley at or 806.742.3641 ext. 243.

Clothing and Gifts

The Texas Tech Alumni Association also offers a wide variety of Texas Tech clothing, gifts and merchandise for Red Raider fans of all ages through the Tech Traditions Gift Shop. To purchase your Texas Tech holiday gifts you can go by Tech Traditions housed in the Merket Alumni Center located at 17th and University or you can visit them online at

Permanent Gifts

Another option is personalized courtyard bricks, bronze pavers, stone walkway markers, stone parkway benches and cornerstone markers.

Walking across the Texas Tech campus may have made a lasting impression on your life and perhaps your loved one as well. So on this holiday season, give that special someone a permanent gift with a personalized courtyard brick, bronze paver, stone walkway marker, stone parkway bench or a cornerstone marker.

These permanent markers may be inscribed with your name or they may be purchased in honor of your child's or relative's graduation, as a memorial to a dear friend or to recognize others.

For more information or to schedule an appointment to view the Alumni Association facilities, contact Mandy Wiley at or by phone at 806.742.3641 ext. 243.

The Texas Tech Alumni Association would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays.
