Dear New Terry's,
Congratulations on being accepted to Texas Tech, and receiving the Terry Scholarship!! Coming into your first year of college, I understand that you will have tons of questions to ask. Don't worry, there are tons of people who will gladly help answer all of your questions. You can e-mail me or any of the other Terrys if you have any questions I don't answer in this e-mail.
Hopefully you have already registered for Red Raider Orientation. If not, try to get as early a session as possible. At Orientation you will be greeted by a group of counselors, who will help you with everything you will need to do throughout Orientation, including: registering, getting your ID, and going to advising, among other things. Among these counselors will be three Terry's including Tiara Price, Kyle Wolfe and myself. If you have any questions we will gladly answer them and do our best to help. During Orientation you will get a brief introduction to the traditions of Texas Tech and meet tons of new people. Some of these people will become your friends throughout your college experience and into your professional lives. Don't be afraid to be outgoing!!
You should also be aware there are Terry meetings on Thursdays at around 5 or 6. They will start some time during the semester when we get everything figured out. We encourage you to attend. Be involved.
Once again, congratulations on receiving the privilege of being a Texas Tech Terry. I look forward to seeing you at orientation and throughout your college career.
Guys--the leadership event was AWESOME today. Mrs. Rutherford is such a great connection for us to have. Thanks to those who came! Not only was it beneficial for us, but we helped a Media and Communication student (that attended) build her network. We gave back! :) Thanks for everyone's help and support for this year's series. They were successful because of you!
