Biographical Sketch

Officially opened on March 13, 1953, the Student Union building, now called the University Center, houses the offices of various campus organizations and student services. The Student Union Program Council was responsible for planning and organizing various social events, such as the Speakers and Artists Series, movies, dance performances and entertainers. By the 1990s, University Center Programs became the administering body and the social events were renamed as the Nightlife Series.

Later, the Student Activities Department planned and promoted cultural and education events. It was responsible for bringing in various speakers, concerts, and entertainers, plus other university functions. In the Spring of 2002, the Texas Tech University departments of Student Activities and Student Life merged to form the Center for Campus Life (CCL). The Center for Campus Life is responsible for arranging cultural and social events to enrich the lives of Texas Tech students, faculty and the general public. Annually, nationally and internationally known authors, celebrities, speakers, and artists are brought in to speak and perform at the university.

The Center for Campus Life is comprised of a variety of different departments, such as the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, the Spirit Office, Student Involvement, the TTU Food Pantry, the LGBTQIA program, and the Red to Black Peer Financial Coaching program.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of files on a variety of Texas Tech student organizations, newspaper clippings, 6 rolled banners, and five oversized scrapbooks filled with pasted newspaper clippings and photographs. A large number of loose photographs (7 contact sheets, 134 negatives, and 754 prints) from various sponsored events are also included in the collection.

Photocopies were made of all the scrapbooks because several were deteriorating and the items inside had come loose. The scrapbooks that were in good condition were kept; those that were completely falling apart were photocopied and discarded. Additionally, folder 42 in box 2 was removed after the collection was processed, as it contained activity release forms with student's private information listed, and the documents was shredded.
