Family Weekend 2017 was September 29-30, 2017.  The date for Family Weekend 2018 will be released here and in the Parent & Family eNewsletter during the Spring 2018 semester.

A tradition at Texas Tech since 1936, Family Weekend is a wonderful time to visit campus and reconnect with your student! The Texas Tech campus is beautiful in the fall, and there are many activities for families to enjoy during the weekend.

History of Family Weekend

 

Parent of the Year Award

Started in 2013, the Parent of the Year Award is a more recent tradition added to Family Weekend. Students have the opportunity to nominate their parent, guardian, or grandparent who has impacted the student's life significantly, both personally and academically. This is a chance for Texas Tech to recognize the parents who contribute to the success of our students. The award is presented to the winners during Family Weekend on the field of the Jones AT&T Stadium.
