Students are encouraged to engage in conversation with our presenters to learn about the various resources TTU offers. Lastly, students will also have the opportunity to explore TTU through a campus tour that will take them throughout the buildings and colleges.
Students are housed in Texas Tech residence halls. Students will be supervised at all times by TTU College students and staff who will be working as counselors. Our counselors have been selected for meeting our criteria, attending training, and displaying great role model characteristics.
