About the cover

Texas Tech University celebrates 90 years in 2013 and the cover displays photographs from years past of the campus and student life. The color photo is a recent photo of the Administration building and Memorial Circle. Other photos include a member of the Goin’ Band performing during a football game circa late 1970s. Texas Tech football scores its first touchdown circa October 1925. The Administration building was the first building completed on campus and is shown on opening day of Texas Technological College on Oct. 1, 1925. Tech celebrates a victory in the coliseum circa 1980. The final photo is of students walking on campus circa 1930.

Staying Healthy 101 It is important to stay healthy to avoid illness because being sick can really affect your performance in school. One important thing you should be sure to do is wash your hands. Don’t go overboard and wash your hands every 10 seconds, but be sure to wash those hands several times a day. No sink handy? Use hand sanitizer! There are lots of wonderful scents available, so you are bound to find one you like. Another important tip to remember is to not drink after someone else or use the same utensils another person is using. That is one of the main ways infections, such as mono, are spread. This rule is especially important if the other person is sick. Keep your living space clean. In the dorms, you are already liv-

ing in cramped quarters. By keeping your room clean, you can help keep germs down. It does not have to be spotless, but taking a Clorox wipe to the counters, doorknobs and other surfaces kills bacteria and germs. Get some sleep. A lack of sleep can really take a toll on your health, so be sure to get in the recommended seven to nine hours. Don’t pull too many all-nighters and avoid staying out late every night. Practice healthy eating habits and exercise. Not only will your body be strong, it will have the nutrients and stamina to fight illness. In addition, take a little time each day to relax. Have a home health kit. In this kit, keep basic over-the-counter drugs such as ibuprofen, or aspirin, as well as a thermometer.

Other staples include band aids, disinfectant, and cough drops. Having these items will be good to have in case you start coming down with something. Get a flu shot. The flu is never fun, and the stress of finals and other things weakens the immune system. While getting a flu shot does not guarantee protection from getting it, it does decrease your chances of getting it. The sooner you get the shot, the better. You do not want to get the flu on finals week. The Student Wellness Center often has flu shots available for students. Visit the doctor if you think you have something more serious than a cold.

The Texas Tech Student Health Center is open every weekday, and one of the many physicians can attend to you. There is also a pharmacy on campus so you don’t have to leave campus to fill prescriptions. If you do happen to get an ailment of any kind, be sure to take care of yourself. Drink lots of fluids, in the form of water or hot beverages, to replace those your body is using in fighting whatever it is you have.

Keeping off the Freshmen 15 College is a stressful time in life. Projects, essays, and tests all add up, giving students little free time and a lot of stress on the body. Added stress can cause weight gain and other health problems. While eating healthy is important, it is not the only strategy to use. College students are typically on a Ramen noodle budget anyway. In addition to eating healthy, exercising is necessary. According to the Mayo Clinic, 15-30 minutes of physical activity a day is crucial to staying fit. The Robert H. Ewalt Student Recreational Center staff can help motivate you to exercise because they offer free RaiderX classes.

They also have RaiderX 2 classes that are available for a small fee. RaiderX classes cover a variety of categories of exercise such as aerobics, mind and body, dance, and strength classes. The rec center also supports a strong intramural sports program, with more than 90 sports available to participate in. Sports include volleyball, flag football, soccer and more. There are also sports clubs. These club sports include rugby, Quidditch, lacrosse, paintball, fencing, and others. For more information visit the rec center’s website at www.depts. ttu.edu/recsports/.

IT Training: Computer software classes are FREE

Technology is increasingly becoming more and more important to the survival of college students. Not only do students need a computer to write essays, but many professors are beginning to integrate the use of technology into their courses via Blackboard and other online programs. College students do not need assistance in how to use this technology, but not all students know what to do or where to go when their computer decides to crash or some other technological problem occurs. While it is not necessary to know how to fix everything, it is important to know where to go to get help. When a computer crashes, a computer or a program ceases to function properly, often exiting after encountering errors. Things that cause crashes are an outdated or misbehaving device driver, a computer virus, a corrupted program, or a problem with your computer’s memory. Ways to prevent your computer from crashing are: • Don’t run too many programs at one time. • Check the disk space. • Update the virus protection software. • Upgrade the operating system. • If your computer still crashes despite your best attempts, you need to take action. According to the Microsoft Windows website, you should contact technical support and write down any error report messages so that tech support may better help you.

Computer shops, such as Best Buy or Office Depot, can also be of assistance in helping get a computer back up. However, some computer crashes are so bad you may have to invest in a new one. It is a good idea to always back up all files you are working on in case your computer does crash, so you can still access your projects from other sources as all data will most likely be wiped from the memory when it crashes. You can back up files on a flash drive, an external hard drive, and there are even online drop boxes where work can be saved. Texas Tech provides Raider Drive where students can save their work. Similarly on smart phones, an app called “Dropbox” is available where you can save photos and other information in case you should need to replace your phone. Technology labs are available around campus so that students who may not have a computer or particular software can complete projects. Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Garage Band, and many other programs are available in the library and other specialized labs around campus. However, the computers with this software are limited so you have to plan accordingly. The library also provides an equipment checkout service for whenever students might need a camera, tripod, or other technology for a project. Do plan ahead because of limited availability. The Information Technology Division at Texas Tech also offers short courses and training. These courses include computing practices and guidelines, graphics and media, Microsoft Office 2010, statistics, web development and publishing and workshops. For more information visit: http://www.itts.ttu.edu/training.

The Learning Center The Learning Center is one of the best student resources on campus and it’s FREE! It is located in the basement of Holden Hall, Room 80. Hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday; and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays during the fall and spring semesters. Under the Support Operations for Academic Retention (SOAR) department, the Learning Center provides drop-in peer tutoring to TTU students. Tutoring is available in a variety of subjects including math, chemistry, biology, engineering, and English. Academic coaches are also available to help with study tips, time management skills, and other useful techniques. The onsite Licensed Professional Counselor is there to help assist students struggling with personal issues that may be impeding their academic success. As a Learning Specialist, the counselor can also assist with effective tips on goal setting, note taking, and test anxiety.

With a Wi-Fi enabled study lounge and 18 computers available for student use, it provides a quiet and comfortable place to study or work in groups. The Supplemental Instruction (SI) program provides weekly course-specific review sessions (CHEM 1307, MATH 1452, BIO 1403, etc.) and offers students another resource for academic success. These sessions are led by SI Leaders who have a working relationship with the professors to ensure quality. “Marathon” reviews prepare students for their exams! Check the schedule out the Learning Center on Facebook (TTU-The Learning Center) or on the website www.lc.soar.ttu.edu for tutor times and then stop by. Find SI on Facebook (Texas Tech University Supplemental Instruction) or on www.si.soar.ttu. edu for all review schedules.

Safety

Be Prepared

Campus Safety: Better to be Safe than Sorry Campus crime goes beyond stolen bicycles and wallets. Intruders and assaults are just as likely to occur. To prevent crimes from happening to you, keep these tips in mind. Never walk alone at night. Try to always go out with at least one friend if you are going to be spending all night in the library. Also walk along well-lit paths, avoid dark areas such as parking lots. If you are studying alone late at night, Safe Ride is available to come pick you up and give you a ride home. Safe Ride is a taxi service that runs from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. and is free to all Tech students. Showing your Tech ID is the only requirement. Call 742-NITE. Safety off-campus is also important. The S-Bus provides students a way to safely get home from the Depot District and Broadway. Call 742-RIDE. Get your keys out of your purse before you begin walking to your car or apartment. That way, you won’t be distracted by digging through your purse. When going out to your car, check underneath it and the back seats before getting in for possible uninvited guests. Always lock your vehicle, and do not leave valuables out in the open. Lock your door whenever you are asleep or leave for any amount of time. It may be beneficial to invest in Mace. Keychain size Mace is available at several locations around town. Always be aware of your surroundings, so you are less likely to be taken by surprise. Avoid putting your address on personal items, such as your wallet. Use a telephone number because it is safer. Report any suspicious activity to the Texas Tech Police Department at 743-2000 or 9-911.

Advising: Develop a good relationship with your academic adviser. They help you with what courses to take; they listen to venting about classes; they encourage and are ready to assist you with your academic career. Basically, your academic adviser is there for you. Most students do not take advantage of the services academic advisers provide simply because they do not know how to take advantage of them. Here are some tips on how to have a good relationship with your adviser.

1. Advising is a relationship.

On average, academic advisers see some students only once or twice a year, when it is time to start thinking about classes for the next semester. However, by visiting with your adviser on a regular basis, even through email, they are more able to understand your needs and goals in college. Like any relationship, communication is essential.

2. Make an appointment.

Advisers are available every day. By taking the initiative to meet with your academic adviser, they will see that you are seri-

the key to success

ous about succeeding academically in college. However, be sure to contact them to set up an appointment and do not just drop in on them.

3. Come to appointments with specific questions. Having specific questions in mind is important so you understand the curriculum of your program and know what to expect as you progress through school.

4. Do your part.

While academic advisers are there to help, you still have to do your part. Do not rely on your adviser to do everything for you because your adviser has other students to help as well.

5. Adviser should be effective.

If you feel your adviser is not being effective in helping you, such as not returning emails in a timely fashion, you should try visiting them in their office to discuss the problem. If their communication with you still does not improve after your visit, you should inquire if you could meet with a different academic adviser.

Study Abroad Every semester, students from across campus participate in the study abroad program and experience life in a different culture. According to the Texas Tech study abroad website, students can study in more than 70 countries, including Tech’s sister campus in Seville, Spain. Students can study abroad during a summer session or for the entire year. To be eligible for study abroad, a student must be at least a sophomore, by year, not credits. They must also have at least a Texas Tech GPA of 2.5 at the time of application, be in good disciplinary standing, and keep that standing through the completion of the course. If you are interested in studying abroad at some point during your college career, you should attend a

study abroad information session and visit with your academic advisor as well as a study abroad advisor. One of the challenging aspects of studying abroad is it can be expensive, so start planning and saving now if you are interested. There are scholarships available to students to help with the costs, so be sure to look into those as well. Students who have participated in study abroad have found the experience wonderful and are glad they decided to try something new. While study abroad is not for everyone, it would be worthwhile to explore the possibilities of traveling the world. For more information visit the website at www.studyabroad.ttu.edu

Upon entering college, many students find themselves surrounded by a sea of diverse opinions and views. Some of you are from small towns, others big cities. Either way, you were exposed to certain values and beliefs by your family, your teachers, and your friends. You may be set on those convictions, which is fine. Having our own specific values and opinions is important to being an individual. When you come to college, all that you previously knew and believed is going to be challenged by professors, your peers, everyone. This barrage of diverse views and cultures can be overwhelming, and many fall prey to the general “public opinion.” However, college is about not necessarily ‘finding yourself’ but learning how to be an individual with your own personal opinions and values and not a follower. Do not jump on the bandwagon. Before you fully believe in a concept or cause that your professor, or some other source supports, do

your own research. If someone simply supports a cause or belief without a good, specific reason, it can make that person look foolish. If you are a person of faith, do not let your own values and opinions be compromised by what your professors or peers tell you. Contrary to popular belief, peer pressure does not end in high school. To help you keep strong in your faith, join a local church’s college group. If you are not a person of faith, that is fine. Just surround yourself with positive influences. Do not be close- minded to listening to other ideas. That will increase your knowledge of the world and help with your views, if you must ever defend them. College is meant to be a fun experience. Just remember to be true to yourself, and most importantly, think for yourself.

“CA” is a community of students loving God, and learning what it means to follow Jesus. Whether we are on a weekend retreat, in service or in worship, around a table or in class…this is what we are about. We are not nearly perfect, but we are being re-made, we are loved by God, and we are revived by Him. You are always welcome in our community. Here are a few things that we do weekly and that have been helpful to us in our journey with God: Manna @ 9:15am Sundays: before worship we get together to eat breakfast and discuss God’s word, not as information, but as “bread”. (1924 Broadway - Broadway Church of Christ) Dinner @ 6:30pm Wednesdays: home-cooked food!

Young Life College @ Texas Tech

During these formative years of a person’s life where many students drift away from faith, Young Life College offers students a community where they can discover their true identity in Jesus Christ. The ultimate goal of Young Life College is to help students truly encounter Christ through relationships, adventure and humor that equip them to be strong Christian leaders, regardless of profession, in the years that follow. While we are excited about how God has moved in and through scores of college folks through Young Life College (at Tech) these last few years, we are poised and preparing for even more dramatic growth in the coming years. Many students who join us for YL College stick around and embark on our Young Life Leadership training program (we call it QUEST) and go on to become YL volunteer leaders here in Lubbock, making an impact in the lives of countless spiritually disinterested high school kids in our city. Saddle up and come join us every Wednesday night this fall (starting on September 11th). And you may consider wearing protective head gear…it could get a little dicey.

Find out what facilities are available in advance. If there is a pool or exercise room, you will know to pack the necessary wardrobe items to enjoy both. Research the local attractions. Take advantage of every opportunity to learn and explore different places. Take advantage of free services. In order to have more spending money for souvenirs, take advantage of complimentary services the hotel may provide, such as the continental breakfast because it will not cost you anything extra and provides a wide variety of options. Get some sleep. Sleeping in hotels can be challenging due to thin walls and loud neighbors. Try wearing earplugs to bed or turning on the air conditioner to produce some “white noise” to block out other sounds.

If you are staying at a hotel that has bellmen, valet and concierge services, do not forget to tip them. An appropriate tip is one to two dollars. It is even acceptable to tip the

Post the “Do Not Disturb” sign outside your door before going to sleep so you will not have any early morning housekeeping visits. If a group is staying in the same hotel, request rooms close together so that you can leave for destinations together and are more accessible in case an emergency arises. If your hotel room has a kitchenette and you are staying for several days, make use of it. A home cooked meal and night of relaxing while traveling is good for the body, soul and wallet. Be reasonable. Problems may arise during your stay that most of the staff has no control over. While talking to the desk clerk or manager to resolve the issue, be polite. Yelling or being rude is not going to fix the problem any faster, nor will it make you very popular with the hotel staff. Remember that they are people too and are there to assist you. Do not make it more difficult for them.

HOTELS

Every year, 4 million visitors come to Lubbock for numerous reasons including football games, concerts, graduation, and other events. Graduation is one of the biggest events for hotels in Lubbock each year due to families coming into town. For that reason, hotels fill up quickly and many hotel managers strongly suggest booking rooms for graduation several months in advance. Marcie Reno, director of sales and marketing at the Overton Hotel and Conference Center said Texas Tech has a tremendous impact on the hotels in Lubbock. “Whenever there is a special event at Texas Tech, the impact on local hotels is huge,” Reno said. “Whether it is graduation, move-in or sporting events, local hotels can expect to see higher than normal occupancy. “Each hotel has restrictions on how far in advance those special events can be booked. At the Overton, rooms over May 2014 Graduation dates are already sold out and have been for almost a full calendar year.” Hotel visits can be stressful, but do not have to be. If you do have the luck of booking a hotel room in Lubbock (or even out of town), here are some tips for getting the most out of any hotel stay.

Graduation is probably a long way off for most of you, but it is never too early to start preparing for that important day. Believe it or not, there is a lot of detail that goes in to celebrating your accomplishments. Here are some tips to keep in mind.

Find out your graduation date

These should be available in your college’s main office and your advisor’s office. Specific dates are set about a year in advance of your graduation. They can also be found online.

Book your hotel accommodations

WAY IN ADVANCE! Hotel rooms fill up quickly in town, so don’t wait too long, or your family may have to travel from a surrounding town on the day of graduation.

Get your Ring

Whether it is the official Texas Tech University ring or a custom one from the various jewelers in town, it is important to have one so you can always remember and represent your college years. You have to complete at least 75 hours to qualify to purchase an official ring.

dered from the alumni association or you order custom announcements from a local photographer, it is important to let your family know of your accomplishments.

RSVP for Graduation

You have to confirm that you will be walking at graduation.

Purchase your cap and gown

These are probably some of the most important things you need on graduation day, so don’t wait until the last minute to get them. Also, the longer you wait, the less likely they will have your size. If you plan on renting your regalia, there are late fees if you rent after the deadline. The university bookstore is the supplier of all grad attire.

Celebrate!

Meet all of your graduation party needs. Cake, food, and decorations are necessities for every graduation party.

Frame your diploma

After you graduate, show off that diploma. Local retailers provide many different styles of frames so you can find the perfect one for you.

If you’re enjoying living away from home and don’t want mom and dad bunking with you, take time to research hotels in the area. Peak times to be aware of include graduation, football games, parent’s weekend, and all types of events happening on campus and in Lubbock. The summer is busy with orientation, student visits to Lubbock, travelers, etc. Every football game weekend is busy. The big ones such as Texas, West Virginia, and Oklahoma sell out first and at the highest rates. Depending on what’s happening in Lubbock, a twoday minimum stay may be required. Just be sure to check out the details. Students can help make reservations for the parents. The student probably knows more about Lubbock and where hotels are located. Graduation weekends are important times to book early – really early! If the online reservation system indicates that all rooms are sold out, call the property directly. It is more expensive for a hotel to book rooms online than if you call the property directly. Although parent’s weekend and big football games are a set visit for some families, there are many more weekends throughout the year. Check out the Lubbock Convention and Visitor’s Bureau at www.visitlubbock.org. Any weekend is a good time to visit Lubbock.

The essential guide for keeping up your car (and saving money). Whether you are an expert mechanic or know absolutely nothing about how your car works, it is important to keep your car in good condition so it will perform well and will always be ready to go on a spur- of -the -moment road trip.

1610 AM

Check the Oil. Motor oil is probably one of the most key components in keeping your car in good condition. Some of its main functions are to lubricate the engine’s moving parts, cool the engine by moving heat away from parts, and keeping internal components clean and free of varnish and harmful deposits. Checking the oil regularly is necessary to ensure your car will run smoothly. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation of how often to change the oil.

Check Tire Pressure. Before hitting the road, check the tire pressure to help with fuel efficiency and to prevent the tires from wearing out more quickly. The last thing you want is to be delayed by a flat tire. Also check your spare tire before leaving to make sure it is ready, just in case you do get a flat.

Change filters. The air filter in your car should be changed about every 10,000 to 12,500 miles, or twice a year. Changing the air filter reduces emissions, increases fuel efficiency, and prolongs engine life. The air filter traps dirt particles which can cause damage to the engine. The filter also cleans the air that is breathed within the car.

Save gas. Watch the way you drive. Fast starts and

speeding reduces the vehicle’s efficiency, requiring more frequent gas station visits. Another good way to save gas is getting a car with good gas mileage. Keep at least a quarter tank of gas in your car. It is healthier for the fuel pump and your wallet.

Get insured. Texas state law requires that all vehicles be insured. Car insurance is important because it can help you pay for damage you may acquire, and it is just a good thing to have.

Buckle Up! You can get a huge fine for not wearing your seatbelt, so play it safe and buckle up. Also, be attentive on the road. Texting while driving is dangerous. Getting in a wreck due to texting can have some serious consequences and cost a pretty penny in tickets and damage. Avoid the mess by putting your phone away while driving. Student parking services offer three free car clinics to make sure your car is ready to hit the road before winter break, spring break, and the summer break. Owning a car is expensive, but if you maintain your vehicle, it will be much less expensive in the long run.

Appeal

You may also use that 10-day period after getting a citation to appeal it. More information regarding appeals is available on the Parking Services website.

Don’t get a boot!

Failure to pay your tickets can cause other problems, such as getting a boot put on your car. This occurs after you receive nine unpaid tickets in one semester.

Motorcyclists

Owners of motorcycles and mopeds must pay for permits as well and may park in designated two-wheel vehicle areas.

Yield to pedestrians That is a general courtesy rule.

Be Courteous

Be polite to the parking staff in the booths. They are only doing their job by enforcing the rules, not being the bad guy. For a complete list of parking rules, visit: www.parking.ttu.edu.

Many students use bicycles as their means of transportation on campus. Just like any person operating a vehicle on campus, there are rules for bicyclists to follow. Bicycles, like cars, have designated places to park them while in class, that is in the bike racks, not on poles, trees, bushes or other items not intended for holding bikes. Bikes are also not allowed in any buildings. Bikes found in violation, can be impounded and students will pay at least a $40 fee. It is recommended for the owner of the bike to have a lock on it to prevent theft. This year the SGA and board of directors have declared all areas on campus acceptable for bicycle use. However, cyclists still must dismount at crosswalks and yield to pedestrians. Bicyclists are also not to exceed 10 mph while riding on campus, due to safety. Bicycle registration is highly encouraged and is provided at no cost at the Transportation & Parking Services website or office. For more information regarding bicycles on campus visit: http://www.parking.ttu.edu/students/bicycle-information.

How to be a Wise Renter Renting apartments or houses can be a difficult process, especially for someone new to the renting game.

Step 1:

Shop for places you would like to live.

Pick up some SGA housing guides at the SUB, SGA office, or the Visitors Center, and flip through them. Housing guides will have basic information such as rates, utilities and whether or not they allow pets. Be cautious of on-line listings, and make sure you do your homework.

Step 2:

Meet with a Property Manager or Realtor to look at apartments or houses.

Impressions are important when you’re renting. When you meet with a realtor, look neat and be polite. Realtors aren’t going to treat you like a responsible adult if you don’t look and act like one. (Keep in mind, students are not a protected class, and property owners have the right to refuse to rent to students.) On your first visit, know what questions you want to ask. Here are some things you’ll need to know: Ask about maintenance. Who is responsible for the upkeep? What if something breaks? What if you break something?

Step 3:

If you like what you see, the next step is to apply for the apartment or house.

Be financially prepared. Many places charge an application fee, and most require a down payment or deposit or fee when you apply. (Do not apply for several different apartments or houses. Quite often, the deposits and fees are

non-refundable.) You will need your social security card, driver’s license, employment information, contact information for current and past employers, and contact information of the management where you currently live. Renters may have income requirements to meet. These requirements vary from apartment to apartment and home to home. The management will also contact your employers and gather your current and past rental history to make sure you’re a responsible renter. In most cases the management will also run criminal and credit background screenings to ensure you meet their rental qualifications. These screenings could be grounds for declining your application. Tip: if you have any criminal history, let the management know upfront. What if you don’t have any rental history? Most renters will be required to have a guarantor form signed. Usually, that is Mom and Dad so if you mess up, they are forced to pick up the tab. View this as an opportunity to build good credit.

Step 4:

Sign the lease.

Many managers have a video to watch explaining the lease. This is just an overview; you still need to read the lease. Yes, they’re long and boring, but you need to understand what you’re committing to.

Step 5:

You’re in! Now, how can you be a good renter?

You now have responsibilities. You have to keep things clean, whether you’re in an apartment or a house. If you’re in a house, keep your yard mowed. You have to remember to pay the rent and the utility bills on time, and if something breaks, you have to fix it or pay to have it fixed. Buy renter’s insurance. If something happens to your living space, it’s your problem. The owner is not responsible for things such as damage caused by natural disasters, fires, roof leaks, or break-ins, but renter’s insurance will cover those things. Talk to your insurance company about renter’s insurance, and make sure you understand everything they cover before you buy. It’s inexpensive and well worth it. Be a good neighbor. Be respectful of the people living near you, and remember, they can get you into trouble with your landlord and also with the law. Don’t trash the place. Be respectful of the space you are renting because if you tear up a house or an apartment, you’re destroying someone’s property, (which is called vandalism). Your credit and rental history will follow you wherever you go. If you do not pay rent or pay late, even for a good reason, that will always be on your credit history and will cause problems next time you want to rent or buy. Also, do not leave somewhere still owing money even if you disagree with the amount. If you don’t get that straightened out, later down the road it will affect your ability to rent or buy. Remember, being a good renter is your opportunity to build good credit and rental history. Take it seriously. TexasTechWord.com / 2013-2014

• Let your housemates know where you are going and when you will be back. • Lock your doors and windows. • Ask before you borrow things. • If you damage your roommate’s property, replace it and apologize. • Make time to see the people you call roommates. • Let your roommates know if you plan to have people over and be considerate of how long they visit. • Make sure that he or she gets their messages and mail. • Keep a calendar of when bills are due, and a place where it’s checked off as each portion is paid and when it was paid.

• Clean up after yourself (and your guests). • Devise a system for sharedspace cleaning, and maintenance. • Be considerate if your roommate is studying, not feeling well, or resting. • Do something nice once in a while. • Treat your housemate as you would want to be treated. • Discuss differences. Are you a morning person or a night owl? • Do not engage in conversations with your roommate’s parents about their behavior. • Do not let your friends use your roommate’s possessions. • Pets…. Treat pets as an extended guest. They are your responsibility, so choose wisely.

• Don’t discuss problems with friends. This helps reduce rumors and side conversations. • Confront the problem directly with the person • Consider your timing. Is this a difficult time or a good time? • Think about what you’re going to say before you say it and have solutions in mind before you complain. Example, “Please don’t park behind people who have early classes.” • Be reasonable. If your roommate forgets to do a chore, don’t get upset, chances are it won’t happen again. Set out a jar for offenses -- miss a chore, pay a fine. • Don’t accuse. Find solutions rather than creating problems.

Living Off-Campus

Tech students represent approximately 10 percent of the Lubbock community. As homeowners, renters, and consumers at local businesses, students have a definite impact on the economy. More than half of the Tech student body lives off campus. Tech’s Responsible Community Living website offers some pointers to consider before moving off campus. Do your research: thoroughly research the area. Do your best to be a good neighbor: treat your neighbor as you would like to be treated. Be considerate. Be an Informed Consumer: don’t sign a lease agreement without consulting a parent or guardian. Consider your safety: be familiar with the neighborhood you are considering. Consider your personal health: important aspects of student’s success are physical and emotional well-being. http://www.depts.ttu.edu/dos/responsible-living.aspx

Living On-Campus Texas Tech provides students with 14 residence halls, two suite-style halls, and an apartment complex on campus. On-campus students live within walking distance of class, the library, the Student Union building (SUB), the student recreation center, and more. Living in residence halls allows students to build relationships with others in a close knit community. On-Campus Housing Info: For the first time ever, students are required to show proof of a meningitis vaccine. On-campus housing is in high demand. New students may sign up using the Priority Room Selection system. Students with fewer than 30 college hours, excluding dual credit or credit by exam, are required to live on campus. University Student Housing offers residence life and professional staff positions.

Now that you have graduated from high school and are starting to venture into the world of independence, managing your money has become more important in your life. As you are just beginning college, your parents are probably supporting you, for the most part, but you are still facing important financial decisions.

Find a job

Some students, in addition to school work, will pick up a part-time job. While it is not always necessary, especially for those whose parents are supporting them, it is good to get as much job experience as possible, and the job will provide you with extra spending money.

Organize your financial records

Buy a portable file organizer where you can organize and store bank statements, tax returns, pay stubs, receipts, and other financial documents. Keep track of your spending through balancing your checkbook or through your bank’s online services.

Avoid debt

Pay off all debts, such as student loans, as soon as possible. Loans always have interest fees and that can really add up the longer you wait to pay them off. A good way to avoid having to take out student loans is to apply for scholarships and grants. A wide variety of scholarships are available to students, and you will never know if you will get one unless you try.

Save

Doing so will give you a sense of security, and you will be more conscientious when making decisions so you do not overspend. Be sure to include rent (if not living on campus), food, clothing, entertainment and savings.

Set aside a portion of each paycheck for future use. You never know when you might need money. The amount you save each month should be consistent; that way you form a good habit. If you have to skip saving a portion of your paycheck once, the next time around add a little bit more to make up for it.

Limit spending

Give

Create a budget and stick to it

A general downfall as a consumer is simply spending more than you can afford. Prioritize what you need, and save up for what you want. In the long run, it will be worth the wait. A good way to save money is buying used textbooks.

Citibus is the official bus system for Texas Tech and works with the Student Government Association to provide transportation around campus for students. The bus system does not only run on campus, however. Many of the apartment complexes are

on the Tech bus route, providing a convenient service to residents. Rebecca Scott, a graduate student in advertising from Dallas never had a car as an undergraduate. And she lived off campus, way off. “Now I live at 71st and Utica,” Scott said. “Last year I lived

by the mall, like right behind it. I never lived in student housing.” Scott said she got a car for graduation, but she did not have one previously because she could not afford to buy one. Her key to getting around Lubbock was Citibus. Scott said, the bus system can take you anywhere within the city limits you need to go. Scott said buying a bus pass is unnecessary for students. “If you are a student,” Scott said, “you just show them your student ID, and you can get on for free.” Scott said riding the bus has its advantages. “It will save you lots of money in the long run,” Scott said, “you will not have to buy a parking pass

to park on campus; this is completely free, it stops by the SUB, and it is easy.” Riding the bus does have its disadvantages as well. “The length because it takes maybe 15 minutes by car from my apartment to school,” Scott said, “but by bus, it takes 35 minutes. So that was always kind of the bad part because you have to plan.” She said her experience using the bus system was a positive one. “I had a really good experience with Citibus,” Scott said. “The bus drivers are always extremely friendly, and they got to know who I was.” Campus bus routes are available in this publication. Visit Citibus’ website for more information on city-wide bus routes. http://www.citibus.com/

Help! S-Bus

The S-Bus provides students living in many apartment complexes an alternative means of transportation when it comes to going out at night. Check with your apartment manager. The S-Bus runs from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. and transports students from the apartments to Broadway and the Depot District.

742-RIDE (7433); 742-NITE (6483)

Safe Ride is a taxi pickup service available to Tech students. Provided through student service fees, Safe Ride picks students up and delivers them to their destination free of charge. A Tech I.D. must be provided to the Safe Ride driver once the destination is reached. Safe Ride is available from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Sometimes late night study sessions require students to be on campus past 8 p.m. Since on-campus bus routes only run until 8 p.m., Citibus provides students with a night shuttle offering curb-to-curb pickup and delivery. All that is required is a valid Tech I.D. To arrange for pickup, call 742-NITE.

Mental Health

In college, life does not stop. Things will happen that you have no control over, and could affect you, physically and mentally. Grief, depression, stress and other issues can take a toll on your mental health, and adding the stress of college can make it even worse. Talking about your emotions is a positive experience, especially when you open up to someone you do not know. There is also a level of trust built because a stranger is less likely to judge you. While it is common for people to think they are fine or can handle an emotional situation on their own, it is not always the healthiest choice. It is important to recognize the signs so you, or someone you love, can get help. According to the American Psychiatric Association, some signs of dealing with a psychological issue are: • Lack of sleep

• Difficulty concentrating • Feelings of hopelessness and helplessness • Social withdrawal • Uncharacteristic or peculiar behavior • Loss of appetite • Dramatic mood swings • Extreme feelings of guilt Ignoring these signs is not healthy, nor is it healthy to not seek professional help when necessary. As a student, you do not have to go far to get help. The Student Wellness Center on campus not only cares for colds and fevers, but also offers individual and group counseling for all students and staff on campus who are coping with any psychological issue. The Student Counseling Center is located on the second floor of the Student Wellness Center. For more information, visit the website at http://www.depts.ttu.edu/scc/.

Traveling Safety Tips:

Precautions While On Vacation You are at risk for identity theft while away from home. Credit cards, passports, and other official forms of personal identification are targets. Protect yourself and take extra precaution with items most likely to be stolen while traveling. Thieves are just as likely to target your personal information as your expensive camera or laptop. The Texas Tech IT Division offers these tips to help protect your identity. • Don’t travel with all your credit cards. • Don’t leave personal information in your hotel room. Store valuables in the hotel safe. • If you make travel arrangements using your mobile phone, be careful about the information you input and store in the application, such as saving your login information, credit card number, or billing address. Your saved information could be stolen along with your phone. • Avoid accessing personal information from public computers. Most public wireless connections are not secure, so avoid using them for secure and/or sensitive transactions, such as transactions requiring a login. • Stay alert. It is easy to let your guard down while relaxing on vacation, but be aware of your surroundings and the people around you.

Texas Tech celebrates 90 years of tradition in 2013. On Feb. 3, 1923, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill No. 103, establishing Texas Technological College, although a location had not yet been decided. Lubbock was designated the location for the school in August 1923. The cornerstone of the first building, the Administration building, was laid on Nov. 11, 1924. In the fall of 1925, five of the schools began holding classes. These included Agriculture, Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Home Economics, and Music. The following decades brought a lot of growth to Texas Tech, though the process was a slow one. Through the 1930s and 40s, Texas Tech established the business administration and graduate schools. In the 1950s, Texas Tech joined the Southwest Conference, establishing its national presence in athletics. During the 1960s and 70s, the medical school, law school, Texas Tech Museum, and National Ranching Heritage Center were established. In September 1969, Texas

Technological College officially became Texas Tech University. In addition, Texas Tech began gaining an international reputation for its research activities. In 1996, the Texas Tech Board of Regents established the Texas Tech University System with John T. Montford serving as the first chancellor. In 2007, Angelo State University joined the Texas Tech University System under Chancellor Kent Hance. Entering a new stage of growth and development, Texas Tech now has more than 30,000 students enrolled and recently reached its $1 billion goal in the Vision and Tradition campaign. Texas Tech is working toward becoming an Association of American Universities Tier One University through attaining the National Research University designation. Over the next 90 years, Texas Tech will continue to grow and strive for honor as an establishment of higher education.
