This summer we participated in over 25 resource fairs for Red Raider Orientation. We were delighted to have two of our Minors, Karla Morales and Dalton Richardson, help us with our tabling.
Red Raider Orientation (RRO) is a mandatory program designed to provide all incoming students an opportunity to meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, gather information about Texas Tech programs and services, and learn the history and traditions of the university.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, contact us to find out how you can be more involved.
Volunteers are needed to assist with a variety of activities throughout the year. Specific tasks, as well as miscellaneous duties, are offered to provide you an experience of a behind the scenes look at our program and the campus community. These opportunities are highly beneficial to those students in need of building their resume.

Volunteering is good for your mind and body
- Volunteering provides many benefits to both mental and physical health. Volunteering increases self-confidence. Volunteering can provide a healthy boost to your self-confidence, self-esteem, and life satisfaction. You are doing good for others and the community, which provides a natural sense of accomplishment. Your role as a volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity. And the better you feel about yourself, the more likely you are to have a positive view of your life and future goals. .
Volunteering can provide career experience
- Volunteering offers you the chance to try out a new career without making a long-term commitment. It is also a great way to gain experience in a new field. In some fields, you can volunteer directly at an organization that does the kind of work you’re interested in. For example, if you’re interested in nursing, you could volunteer at a hospital or a nursing home. Your volunteer work might also expose you to professional organizations or internships that could be of benefit to your career. - www.helpguide.org
