New Family Welcome




Texas Tech Parents Association welcomes YOU to the Red Raider Family.


While your student is going off to college, all family members will experience change.  We're here to help you navigate the processes you'll encounter during the time your student is at Texas Tech by offering Assistance, Information, Resources, and Support.


We offer several information sessions to help you and your student get a head start.



         YAHOO - BOOHOO
 April    June    August-September


MATADOR MATINEE Join families in your community to learn more about Red Raider Orientation and Red Raider Camp. All new undergraduate students are required to attend a Red Raider Orientation session. RRO is designed to help you become familiar with campus, learn about campus resources, meet other new families, and students REGISTER FOR CLASSES. What does it cost to attend RRO? Should you attend RRO with your student? How will family members spend their time? What about ordering textbooks? Where are the advantages of attending Red Raider Camp?


NEW FAMILY RECEPTION - Families learn all about Move-In - what you really need to bring and what you really don't need to bring.  When to arrive?  Does my student need a car? What can we reasonably expect to spend the first year?  How can we be engaged and involved from afar?  


YAHOO-BOOHOO  - Just as it probably sounds, students are moved in and you're back home.  What's next?  Many parents are surprised to experience a closer relationship.  Your student may actually ask you for advice! 



 SEND-OFF Each summer Texas Tech Parents Association hosts Send-off Parties in locale communities. Student send-offs are exciting and informal events held for students prior to their departure for Texas Tech.  It's a time to get those last minute questions answered before Move-In.  Equally important, it's a celebration with fun, food, fellowship and prizes!  Send-Off is a rite of passage tradition for freshmen students across the country.
