Welcome to the Honors College!

Red Raider Orientation (RRO) is designed to help you become familiar with campus, learn about campus resources, meet other new students, and register for classes.  As a member of the Honors College student community, you have expanded course options available to you and you have additional support with your transition to TTU and with the goal of registering successfully for your first semester at Texas Tech University.

What do you need to know as an Honors student preparing to attend your RRO session?

  1. You will be required to enroll this Fall 2022 in ONE Honors First-Year Experience (FYE) course, with its linked Learning Community Group (LCG). FYE courses are taught by top faculty across campus and have a low enrollment cap. As well, rest assured all FYE sections provide some form of Core Curriculum or lower-level degree credit.
  2. You have the option of enrolling in additional Fall 2022 Honors courses if you like… but only the one FYE+LCG is mandatory. There are two separate booklets: FYE+LCG Course Offerings and the additional Honors College Fall 2022 Course Offerings. For more information on the additional Fall 2022 Honors course offerings—and how to request special permission if needed—we encourage you to check out our RRO Honors Course Options webpage.
  3. You will have the chance to connect with Honors advisors and current Honors students at our Come-&-Go Welcome area on Day 2 of RRO.  Your overall degree plan is the foundation for your academic studies, so we want to prioritize your time at RRO with your primary major advisor. The Honors RRO website and the email communication you receive from Honors prior to your RRO session will provide the essential details needed to plan for your required Honors FYE+LCG… and any additional Honors courses you might consider. But definitely plan to swing by McClellan Hall (across from the SUB) to make a personal Honors connection before the conclusion of your RRO events!
