Howdy Red Raiders, and welcome to the family. My name is Hunter Robinson, and I serve as your Graduate Vice President for the 2023-24 academic year.
I am originally from Carrollton, Texas. I attended Texas Tech for Undergrad and obtained my bachelor's in business administration in May of 2022. From my very first day on our campus, I fell in love with being a Red Raider and the Red Raider spirit. Texas Tech strives to provide each student with a home away from home, and that was my exact experience.
During my undergraduate career at Texas Tech, I had the pleasure of building connections with my peers through various organizations. While at Tech I was involved with President's Select as a Campus Ambassador, served as President for the Residence Halls Association, worked as a student assistant for the Financial Aid Loan Team and the Visitor's Center.
My involvement at Texas Tech taught me that the possibilities were endless. It is because of Tech's dedicated faculty and staff that I was able to take the first giant leap to achieve my own dreams.
From the age of six I knew that I wanted to become an attorney. Coming to Texas Tech showed me that what I thought was only a dream could be my reality if I worked hard enough and believed in my own abilities.
This past academic year, I have had the pleasure of matriculating at the Texas Tech School of Law and learning amongst some of the brightest, future legal minds that I know. In my first year at the law school, I had the opportunity to lead my colleagues as the 1L Class President through the Student Bar Association. Being elected to represent my peers in this capacity was such a large opportunity that I will forever be grateful for. Serving as Class President yielded immense growth for me as, both, a student leader and a person. I was also able to build a connection and rapport with many of my colleagues that I would not have if not for my role.
As Graduate Vice President, my goal during this term is to promote spaces of growth and recognition for each member of the Texas Tech graduate and undergraduate community. What makes Texas Tech so special is that our student body members are some of the most talented individuals. These students deserve to be recognized and cherished as part of what weaves the fabric of the Red Raider family.
I am elated at the opportunity to get to know and connect with every Red Raider and to witness their personal and professional growth over the course of the academic year.
I want to challenge every student to push their boundaries, step out of their comfort zone, and try something new. Whether you join a new student organization, take a class that speaks to a secret passion of yours, or simply befriend someone you would not traditionally think to connect with, there are endless ways to become connected within the Tech Community.
