Texas Tech offers a wide range of academic and social experiences to prepare students to be successful in their lives.

Being an involved parent is more crucial now than ever. Students need to know they have support as they navigate college life and strive to excel in a competitive arena. Research has shown that the more parents are involved, the more likely it is a student will remain enrolled and persist to graduation. Parent involvement at Texas Tech is encouraged!
