The Alumni Association Supports Programs for Texas Tech Veterans and Their Families

Veteran students and their families enjoyed the Bentley Massey Band, free dinner and info booths Tuesday (Sep. 19) at the MVP Fall Kick-off.

The Texas Tech Alumni Association handed out free passes to a special pregame party at the Frazier Alumni Pavilion prior to the Nov. 10 Military Appreciation game against KU.

We are honored to support Texas Tech University Military and Veterans Programs. We take great pride in the fact that we currently have more than 1,300 students at Texas Tech who are veterans or dependents of veterans.

The Texas Tech Military and Veterans Program, or MVP, has a dedicated staff to ensure vets’ needs are met. Some things with which veterans require assistance are navigating the various ways their educations are funded, such as the GI Bill and Hazelwood Act; securing housing; and setting up tutors for student vets who need them. The MVP staff also support a veterans’ fraternity, Veterans’ Association of Texas Tech (VATT). Under the MVP umbrella is the newer Green Zone Program, which creates an environment friendly to veterans.
