Honors College students have the unique advantage of experiencing a small, intellectually and socially vibrant environment while having access to the vast resources of the major research university at TTU. Honors College students simultaneously benefit from being with others of the same intellectual preparation and commitment while enjoying the advantages of a university environment actively engaged in exploring all areas of human interest and concern.
All students who are admitted to Texas Tech and the Honors College also enroll in a disciplinary college and pursue one or more of the 150+ available majors and concentrations, including one major housed within the Honors College, Honors Arts and Letters. Their education is the result of the integration of all colleges at TTU, including the Honors College, that cultivate the talents and interests of Honors College students and endeavor to meet their changing needs as they develop academically and socially.

The President's Excellence in Advising Award (PEA) is an annual award designed to recognize excellence in academic advising by faculty and/or staff. The four advisors, Ms. Megan Conley, Ms. Lori Lightfoot, Ms. Sarah Timmons, and Ms. Janet Veal, are committed, intelligent, generous, hard-working, overachieving individuals who, as a team, make up one of the most effective and impressive resources the Honors College has to offer. It is this dedication that truly distinguishes our advisors. Our advising team works tirelessly not only to make certain it provides accurate information to our students, but also to get to know the students as human beings, as future leaders and participants in a global society. Our advisors know our students, their pasts, their presents, their hopes for their futures. Our advisors listen to our students, their problems, their triumphs, their lonelinesses, their happinesses. Our advisors care about our students, their well-being, their morale, their spirit. Our advisors give to our students, their wisdom, their support, their kindness.
