Letter from the Dean of Students
Welcome to Texas Tech University!
It is an exciting time to be a Red Raider! The staff within the Dean of Students area are happy that you are here. College can be a fulfilling and rewarding experience and is a time to learn all sorts of new things. Learning occurs in the classroom as you prepare yourself to become an accomplished professional in your field of study. Personal learning and growth also occurs as a direct result of your active engagement in the University community. Alexander Astin (1984), a higher education scholar, posits that there is a linkage between a student's level of involvement during the college years and their personal and academic success during and post-college. The staff within the Dean of Students area are committed to enhancing student life to get the most out of the collegiate experience.
