Tech-or-Treat is a Halloween Carnival that provides a safe alternative to trick or treating, and is staffed by Texas Tech student organizations, sororities, fraternities, and campus departments. This is the second year in a row for the Tech Terry's top join in the fun!
As students, we are fortunate. We are fortunate not only as recipients of the Terry Foundation Scholarship, but that we were chosen as Terry Scholars for Texas Tech University. We were chosen for this place, and this place is unique.
Lubbock, and by extension, Texas Tech University is privileged to be the gateway to the Llano Estacado and the American Southwest. This region is home to a dynamic landscape, an ever-changing climate, and a hard-working, honest people. This land is historically a land of frontiers, fostering a culture of optimism and freedom. Life on the Llano Estacado is unhindered by the stuffy expectations and rigidity of urban centers.
The settlers of this place were free to forge their own destiny. And so are we.
The lands that project out from this point are vibrant and full of life. The students emerge from this place are too. Here we are free to learn, create and grow, rewarded each evening with a West Texas sunset. We invite you to share in our love for Lubbock this evening as we celebrate the generous gift of the Terry Foundation Scholarship. It brought us here.

Living on campus can be a lot of fun and be a great opportunity to meet amazing people and potentially make life long friends. However, one of the most difficult things about living on campus is finding ways to eat both healthy and delicious when only equipped with a microwave. Fortunately for the Terry's the head chef at Top Tier, Dewey McMurrey, came in to teach them some simple and fun recipes they can make with just a microwave and some creativity.
