RRO for Parents and Family Members

Red Raider Orientation (RRO) for Parents and Family Members

Welcome to the Red Raider Family! At Texas Tech, we know that parents and families are crucial members of our students' success teams. We want to make sure you, as the supporter of a new student attending Texas Tech University, are aware of all of the people and departments on campus that will serve in your new Red Raider's support network on campus.

Orientation Services has arranged to provide the RRO Family Portal - a place you can go to learn more about how to support your student's transition to Texas Tech and help you and your student be prepared for RRO.  You can view our video to learn more about the RRO Family Portal, or visit the Red Raider Orientation for Parents & Families page for more information about how your student can add you to the portal. There is also more information there, on what to bring and how your student can add you as a guest to attend RRO with them.
