Mmmmm: SSC launches ‘Donut Forget to Study for Finals’ day at Dairy Barn
By: Norman Martin
As finals near, Texas Tech's Davis College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources is offering a yummy reminder to bear down on the books. It will be offering free donuts to its students on Tuesday morning (Nov. 28) at the Dairy Barn.
“This event is for our Davis College students, reminding them in a fun way to study for finals,” said Jeanette Moya, a Student Success Specialist within Davis College's Dr. Bill Bennett Student Success Center. “We'll hand out donuts to students from 9 to 11 a.m. or until we run out.” In addition to tasty treats, there will be a table offering academic resources and study tips.
Charged with recruiting and retaining the best students for the college, the center is a group of professionals housed within the dean's office. The unit is named for former Department of Plant & Soil Science faculty member Bill Bennett.
Bennett joined the Texas Tech faculty in 1968 and was a trailblazer in raising money for scholarships to increase recruitment of students, in addition to spearheading creation of the college's Ambassadors for Agriculture and Agri-Techsans programs.
Other members of the center staff include Sandra Addo (2020) Program Manager for Graduate Student Recruitment; Michael Harper (2022) Program Manager for Academic Student Programs; Maeley Herring (2022); Program Manager for Student Retention; Haley Hudson (2022) Program Manager for Davis College Academic Student Programs; Madi Nall (2021) Administrator for Scholarships; and Jeremiah Neal (2023) Program Manager for Recruitment. The group is led by Robert Cox, Associate Dean for Academic & Student Programs.
