Strive for Honor: Texas Tech University's Past, Present & Future Coffee Table Book

In 1923, Lubbock was on the edge of Texas, an outpost on the vast Staked Plains. With determination bordering on stubbornness, a pioneer work ethic and sheer Western will, Texas visionaries grew a world class university out of a dream.

“Strive for Honor” is the story of that dream coming true, a story that will re-kindle the “guns up” spirit of every alumnus, a lasting tribute to the university and its people, achievements, campus and traditions.

Through memorable interviews, illustrated with archival images and new photographs, “Strive for Honor” brings to life the big-as-Texas tale of Texas Tech’s colorful beginnings, its academic foundation and continual quest for excellence.

Today, tens of thousands of students come from more than 90 countries to learn on one of the largest university campuses in the country. Since its founding, Texas Tech has grown from a regional college to a multifaceted university with a nationally recognized public art collection, a renowned collection of national historical documents and top-ranked law and graduate schools.

This hard cover coffee table book makes the perfect addition for the home or office, or can be used as a centerpiece for your library or living room. This stunning keepsake is a great way to cherish the priceless memories that will live forever through the beautiful pages of this volume.

"Strive for Honor:  Texas Tech University’s Past, Present and Future" can be purchased for $60 at Order now while copies are still available.
