For calendar year 2018, High School Tour formats and scheduling are changing (there are no tour dates remaining for 2017).  Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) is moving to a model in which four pre-determined dates will be set for tours, allowing better efficiency of scheduling.

The High School Field Trips/ Tours/Outreach and Engagement will now be called “Red Bag Tours,” which will be a series of four educational tours at the Lubbock, Texas TTUHSC campus.  For these tours, TTUHSC will have an “all hands-on deck” approach, which will allow TTUHSC to host more students using this format. Each student will be given a red plastic bag which may contain items such as brochures/admissions information/promotional items/stickers/pens while on their tour. Although, TTUHSC is considerate to the desire to include all K-12 students on campus tours, these tours are crafted specifically for the high school student audience.

The reason behind the “Red Bag Tours” format is to help YOU, the individual teachers and school districts as well as our TTUHSC faculty and staff have a more efficient and organized tour, in which students should have a great experience while they are visiting our campus.

Online Sign-up for the “Red Bags Tours” will open October 18, 2017 at 9am on this webpage.
