A Note from the President
To the Class of 2023
If there's one thing I've learned in all my time at Texas Tech, it's that every student who blesses this campus with their presence represents a wonderful story to be discovered. This university would be a very different place without you and the various cultures and experiences you've brought, all of which have enriched our campus.
Your graduating class is unique. You're graduating during our centennial year. I challenge each of you to make your mark and leave your footprints all over this world. Because you are Red Raiders, there is an expectation that you will change the world for the better.
Remember that Texas Tech will always be your home, and friendships made here will always be part of your life. Return to campus when you can, and proudly tell the world you are a Red Raider.
To the class of 2023, I extend my heartfelt congratulations and best wishes for success.
