Strive for Honor Week will provide opportunities for campus involvement while highlighting the values of Texas Tech and The Foundation for a Better Life.
Texas Tech will hold its first Strive for Honor Week from March 29-April 2. This event promotes the values of The Foundation for a Better Life and the values of Texas Tech. These values include honesty, family, trust, love and respect.
Encouraged by the dean of students, Strive for Honor is a university commitment that characterizes every student, alumni, faculty and staff member of the Red Raider family. Through this ideal, Texas Tech strives for integrity in all aspects of education and community from the classroom to the sports field.
To open the week’s festivities, students are invited to pick up a free Strive for Honor T-shirt with their Texas Tech ID from 10 a.m. to noon on March 29 in the Student Union Building. Students are encouraged to wear these T-shirts during the week’s closing event, a campus-wide Strive for Honor T-shirt day on April 2.
Other Strive for Honor week activities include:
