Texas Tech University

Raider Welcome

January 10-16, 2021

Winter Raider Welcome is a week 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 week of activities, you'll have all the tools you need to finish your year at Texas Tech University strong. Among the activities are a few major events, some old-standing traditions, and some exciting new opportunities that you just cannot afford to miss!


As we plan to host Spring 2021 events on campus for the above dates, we know these times are uncertain. We take the health and safety of the Texas Tech campus community very seriously. We will plan to implement social distancing measures and follow recommendations from the CDC for hosting events.


With six different tracks, we have something for everyone no matter your interests!
