Texas Tech University’s Student Health Services will kick off its annual Neighbor to Neighbor program from 4 p.m. until dusk Sept. 28 in the Tech Terrace neighborhood.
University representatives will be walking door to door welcoming students to the area and distributing packets of information addressing alcohol issues, roommate relationships and tips for being a good neighbor. Neighbor to Neighbor participants will also provide packets for community members.
“This program is designed to provide students who live off campus with information currently provided to on-campus students in an effort to prevent alcohol-related problems before they start,” said Delia Tibbs, health educator for Student Health Services.
“The program is also aimed at promoting good relationships between Texas Tech students and residents in the Lubbock community,” Tibbs said. “We want to help prepare our students to make a positive contribution to their neighborhoods.”
The Neighbor to Neighbor Program is an effort of Student Health Services and the Alcohol Prevention Coalition, comprising organizations from both the Texas Tech campus and the Lubbock community.
