Texas Tech University
The history and pageantry of Texas Tech are something its students, alumni and the Lubbock community all hold dear. From the sound of the Victory Bells, high atop the administration building in Memorial Circle, that has signaled every Red Raider victory since 1936. To the red crepe paper that’s draped across campus on Friday nights in anticipation of the upcoming football game. To Will Rogers. The breathtaking Carol of the Lights. Or even Raider Red, who was recognized in 2012 as the national mascot of the year. Texas Tech is where traditions reign. Guns up!
