Family Weekend and Family Visit Days

Parents and family members enjoy a weekend of fun during the annual Family Weekend

Family Weekend 2018 was September 28-29, 2018.  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.  We will post the date for Family Weekend 2019 here and in the Parent & Family eNewsletter in Spring 2019.

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.
