Family Weekend and Family Days


Family Weekend is changing to Family Days this year

Family Weekend at Texas Tech has been a tradition since 1936. This year, we will keep the tradition alive by offering a range of activities, both in-person and virtual, throughout the fall semester via Family Days. Whether you are able to travel to Lubbock to visit your student in person or if you participate virtually online, there will be a number of options designed to help keep your Red Raider family connected! Please bookmark go.ttu.edu/familydays and the Texas Tech Parents Association website for updates regarding Family Days and scheduled activities.
