Sibling Weekend

Sibling Weekend is held on the Tech campus and is is a fun, educational, and spirit-filled weekend for Tech students and their siblings between the ages of 8-15. The schedule includes athletic, spirit, craft, and educational activities that combine to provide a unique and special experience for Texas Tech students and their siblings. We hope those siblings attending will create even stronger bonds with their brother or sister who is at Tech and get a sense of what it's like to be a Red Raider. The date for Sibling Weekend 2017 will be announced in the Parent & Family eNewsletter and on the Sibling Weekend page.

Texas Tech students and their siblings enjoy Sibling Weekend at Texas Tech University.
