Raider Welcome is a series of FUN and FREE events designed to welcome new and returning students to the Texas Tech campus. Raider Welcome occurs after Residence Hall move-in and throughout the first week of classes.

By the end of the two weeks of activities, you'll have all the tools you need to start your first semester and make Texas Tech University your own. Among the activities are a few major events, some old-standing traditions, and some exciting new opportunities that you just cannot afford to miss!

With six different tracks and more than 125 events, we have something for everyone no matter your interests!
