Holiday Gift Ideas


You do not 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.

The Official Texas Tech Class Ring

The Official Texas Tech Class Ring would make a great gift for any graduate of Texas Tech. The Official Texas Tech Class 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 the Texas Tech Alumni Association at (806) 742-3641.


Texas Tech Merchandise

The Texas Tech Alumni Association also offers a wide variety of 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

Texas Tech Legacy Program

The Texas Tech Legacy Program

A Legacy is defined as any child that is lucky enough to have at least one parent or grandparent who are current members of the Texas Tech Alumni Association.

At different stages of childhood, Legacies will receive gifts to remind them that they are a part of the TTU family. Gifts will be mailed to the address listed for the Legacy. Please make sure your information is current.

Each Legacy participant will receive a welcome letter and gift, a personalized membership card, annual birthday greetings, exclusive gifts and invitations to Legacy events throughout their membership.

Legacies may participate in the program from birth until they are 18 years old or graduate high school.

The TTAA member must maintain their Century Level (or above) membership annually for the child or grandchild to continue to receive the benefits of the Legacy Program. An additional fee may apply for those with 10+ children/grandchildren.

That is right, the program is FREE for TTAA members who have joined at the Century Level ($100) or above!

All legacy gifts are age appropriate and therefore cannot be retroactive.
