Texas Tech University

Get Involved

There are a lot of ways to get involved on campus after you come back from studying abroad. Texas Tech is home to several student organizations that help to promote internationalization on campus. Check out:

  • International Student Council or Global Techsans, if you're interested in meeting international students and promoting cultures from different parts of the world.
  • Engineering Diplomats, if you're an Engineering major interested in talking with other WCOE students about the benefits of the international experience initiative.
  • Rawls Diplomats, if you're a Business major interested in promoting study abroad within the RCOBA community.

International Student Council

International Student Council is a campus organization created for international students who want a “home away from home” and U.S. students who have a passion for travel, languages, and global affairs. The organization's purpose is to promote global connections through campus and community events and to facilitate cross-cultural relationships among TTU students and the surrounding communities. ISC also hopes to build a worldwide Texas Tech network for lifelong friendships and international opportunities.

For more information on the organization, as well as upcoming events, please visit the International Student Council Facebook page.

Global Techsans

Global Techsans is a partnership program set up to facilitate cultural inclusion on Texas Tech University's campus using both domestic and international students. As a Global Techsan, members will be paired together, a domestic student with an international student. GT members will be expected to attend planned campus events, as well as meet up on campus with their "GT" on a biweekly basis for lunch, dinner or just to hang out! This is a great way to learn about the culture of other countries, as well as help integrate international students into the Texas Tech family. Activities students have done in the past include attending football games, Brazil dance lessons, volleyball games, pumpkin carving, study session, etc.
