Operations Collects Cake Kits
for Food Bank

In celebration of Texas Tech's 101st birthday, the Operations Division collected birthday cake kits during the month of February to donate to the South Plains Food Bank. Each kit included a box of cake mix, a tub of frosting, and a can of Sprite, all wrapped in a disposable baking pan. The kit also included a birthday card and instructions for baking the cake with Sprite instead of oil and eggs. The division's goal of 101 kits was surpassed with a total of 107 kits collected. These cake kits will go a long way in making some happy birthday memories on the South Plains this year! 

New University ID Card Design

The University ID/RaiderCard has a new look! Featuring the iconic bell tower of the Administration Building, the new card design replaces the Centennial logo highlighted in 2023. Any student or employee on the Lubbock campus will now receive this new design. The new design will NOT affect the functionality of your current card, so you won't need to get a new card unless you want to (replacement fees apply). This new card design should be accepted anywhere you can use your RaiderCard.

The University ID/RaiderCard Office is located in the Student Union Building Room 105 (next to Prosperity Bank) and is open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  For more information, call 806-742-1457.

Spring Car Clinic

Transportation & Parking recently hosted its spring car clinic to get drivers ready for spring break travel. This free event is held twice a year and is always open to students, faculty and staff. T&P partners with Scott's Complete Car Care for this event and several mechanics were on hand to check fluids, belts, tires, and other car essentials- all while drivers sat in the comfort of their car. This year, there was a record number of 543 cars serviced. Drivers were treated to a hot dog lunch and given the opportunity to enter a drawing for a free ePermit for the upcoming academic year.

Be on the lookout for details regarding the fall car clinic later this year!
