#GivingTuesday

December 03, 2019

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. The movement provides everyone with the opportunity to be thankful for what they have and give back to the causes that they care about.

 

Red Raider Camp is participating in Giving Tuesday because we care about our students. Our goal is to make Red Raider Camp more accessible for more students who will be attending Texas Tech University. Our first goal was to send 10 new Red Raiders to RRC, but we know that with our amazing Red Raider Camp community that we can raise more.

 

Our goal has increased to $2,700 which will provide 12 students who have financial need with a fee waiver to attend Red Raider Camp free of charge.

Why do we do this? Simply because the experience of Red Raider Camp is special, and its impact extends long into the collegiate careers of our students. Students who attend Red Raider Camp finish their first year with higher GPAs than the first-year average. The credit goes to the security students gain from making connections and learning about what life at Texas Tech will be like.

 

Students who attend Red Raider Camp meet other incoming students who are entering their first year at Texas Tech just like them, and they build lasting friendships. Alongside their new friends, they develop leadership skills and discuss what the upcoming year holds as they prepare for the changes and endless opportunities that will come their way. Together, they learn about the rich history and traditions of Texas Tech University as we sing the words of the Fight Song and Matador Song so that students can shout them out at their first TTU football game.

 

Proud Red Raiders inspire others to share in their pride and love for Texas Tech University. Join us in celebrating Giving Tuesday.

 

We Met the Goal!

December 03, 2019

We have reached our goal! This means that 10 incoming students will attend Red Raider Camp free of charge!

 

From this experience, they will take with them the knowledge of Texas Tech’s history and traditions, long-lasting friendships, and the confidence to thrive in their new environment. It’s because of you that these students will get to experience everything that Texas Tech has to offer.

 

We’re excited to see the impact the fee waivers will have on these students. We are so grateful for you and your continued support for Red Raider Camp.

 

Thank you for being a proud Red Raider.

 

24 Hour Update!

November 21, 2019

We had an incredible turnout yesterday on opening day. Thank you all for your generous contributions to our Red Raider CAMPaign. So far, we are able to send 6 students to Red Raider Camp free of charge!

 

Because of you, new Red Raiders will immerse themselves in the history and traditions of Texas Tech, they will grow in their leadership skills, and develop long-lasting friendships.

 

We thank you for your support of Red Raider Camp. This would not be possible without you.

 

 

Why Should You Donate to Camp?

November 20, 2019

Red Raider Camp is a once in a lifetime experience for all Texas Tech Students. It’s not only an opportunity to connect with Texas Tech’s rich history and traditions, but also an opportunity to make lifelong friends and memories.

 

See what our 2019 campers had to say about their experience at RRC. 

“If I wasn't excited about Tech before I definitely am now. The camp filled me with so much pride, passion, and excitement. My counselors Mags and Dre were really awesome and made me feel welcomed into my new raider family.”

 

“It was very helpful in starting to introduce myself to tons of new people and I now feel like I’m part of the Red Raider family, not just some incoming freshman.”

 

“I loved it, it was so much fun! I would do it again and not change a thing! I made a ton of friends even with the counselors, I loved every second of it.”

 

“The camp made me feel like I as in my new home. It allowed me to feel secure about my decision of attending TTU!”

 

“I came in super nervous and anxious about the next three days. Now at the last day, I don't want to leave.”

 

“You guys are amazing and doing a good job. Thank you for making this experience fun and cool! Super hyped for the year to start!!”

 

“I really feel like I belong at Tech now.”

We're Open!
