Tea with Mrs. Ruthie is one of my favorite Terry events of the year! I love that so many successful women take time out of their weekend to meet with young ladies ready to tackle a semester at Tech. This tea was organized to give ambitious young women an opportunity to hear from those who have been in their shoes. It encourages us to build relationship, dream big, and go the extra mile. Mrs. Ruthie and the other accomplished guests are able to speak individually with students about classes and careers, but also good books and dream vacations. This is what the Terry Foundation, the Honor’s College, and Texas Tech are all about: providing students with the resources they need to be successful in the context of personal relationships. Sun dresses, hot tea, and chocolate treats provide the perfect environment to foster these relationships!
