my outlook. I am in my last semester of the TTU MBA program with a concentration in

In 1981, two students decided to pursue the minor in Women's Studies after ASCAP approved
the interdisciplinary program. (See "History" for a chronology of events)
Since then, we have had a growing number of students graduate. As the number of graduates
grow so does the strength of the Texas Tech Alumni Association. Graduates staying connected with our program strengthens not only individual relationships
but the program as a whole.
Help us to help you stay connected by ensuring that we have correct contact information
for you. As we aquire more information, we plan to feature alumni in our electronic
newsletter (distributed twice a year) as well as on our Facebook page. We want to
hear how you are doing and what you have been up to these days.
