Letter from the Dean of Students

Red Raiders,

As the fall semester nears completion, we have the chance to reflect on our collective experiences. I can think of numerous examples of student accomplishments to celebrate. Likewise, we have had our share of challenges. I would be remiss not to take a moment to express our appreciation to Officer Floyd East, Jr of the Texas Tech Police Department and to Officer East's family for his service to our campus community.

One mark of a healthy community is the ability to come together to celebrate accomplishments. Another is the ability to support on each other in the face of adversity. I congratulate you on your pursuit of academic excellence and am proud to be a part of the Texas Tech community. Collectively, we enrich our community to benefit future Red Raiders.

For those of you who will be passing through the gates of graduation, I am excited to learn what the future holds for each of you. As you transition into the next phase of your life or career, remember all that Texas Tech has offered you. Know that you are leaving Tech better than you found it. Congratulations on your pending graduation and best wishes toward a promising future.

For those of you who are staying on campus to continue your studies, I look forward to the renewed energy that the spring semester will bring. New opportunities to engage in undergraduate research, to engage with fellow students, to lead your peers through campus involvement, and to grow as an individual.

As always, the Office of the Dean of Students stands ready to celebrate with you and to assist you as needed. The staff and departments comprising the Office of the Dean of Students are committed to seeing our students achieve success during their time here at Texas Tech.

Strive for Honor and Wreck'em Tech!
