Raider Welcome is a series of FUN and FREE events designed to welcome new and returning students to the Texas Tech campus. Raider Welcome occurs after Residence Hall move-in and throughout the first week of classes.

By the end of the week of activities, you'll have all the tools you need to start your first semester and make Texas Tech University your own. Among the activities are a few major events, some old-standing traditions, and some exciting new opportunities that you just cannot afford to miss!

"Raider Welcome was an awesome experience and I'm so glad that I am a Red Raider! At first I was nervous about college and being on my own, but now I feel like I belong here and Tech is a home away from home! Wreck Em!"

Welcome to the Texas Tech Family! We're glad you're here!
