On Friday, Oct. 7, at 2:30 p.m., a welcoming reception was held at the Merket Alumni Center for students currently attending the Rawls College. The students are primarily comprised of women's basketball and men's baseball players from Tulane and Louisiana State Universities.
Allen T. McInnes, dean of the Rawls College of Business, welcomed the new students to Texas Tech, as they enjoyed the afternoon sunshine at the Merket Alumni Center Courtyard.
"The devastation caused by the hurricanes has put us in a position where we are able to extend a helping hand," McInnes said. "I know Lubbock is not where you (the students) call home, but we hope you feel comfortable during your stay in Lubbock and at Texas Tech University."
The reception was hosted by the Dean's Office, Rawls College Acedemic Advisors, professors, the CoBA Ambassadors and the Leadership Council.
