Recruitment from TTU K-12 to TTU

My name is Jared Lay and I am the Director of Recruitment/Camp Academy for TTU K-12. If you are interested in attending Texas Tech University, I can help answer questions you may have. Please feel free to email, call, or Skype at your convenience to discuss attending Texas Tech or if you have questions regarding the admissions process. Additionally, our staff can set up campus tours or connect you with a representative in your desired field of study.

I look forward to seeing you on campus this fall or spring as a Texas Tech Red Raider!

Jared Lay, Director of Recruitment

Jared LayJared Lay is the Director of Recruitment and Camps at TTU K-12. He is originally from Melrose, New Mexico, but received his bachelor's degree in agriculture business/business administration at Northwestern Oklahoma State University. From there he went on to earn my master's degree in agriculture education at Texas Tech University. Jared has held various positions in different departments at Texas Tech, but he is grateful to now be working with TTU K-12 students to assist them with their transition from high school to college. His main goals are to recruit students to pursue higher education at Texas Tech University and create exciting learning experiences through academic camps. He believes learning can be fun and rewarding, and academic camps are a great place for students to come to believe that too. His hope is to help design programs where both international and stateside students can interact and learn from one another.
