EVENT: Tech to Town began in 2018 and provides an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to serve the community and strengthen the bonds between Texas Tech and the City of Lubbock.
“Texas Tech is grateful for the support and care the City of Lubbock provides throughout the year, and this is just a small way to say thank you,” said Loni Crosby, activities administrator for Student Union & Activities. “Dedicating time to volunteer in the community is a great way to grow as leaders, and we encourage our students, staff and faculty to give back whenever they can.”
