Texas Tech Alumni Association hosts 2nd annual Legacy U camp

Over the past three days, 170 youths and their grandparents visited the Texas Tech campus as part of the Texas Tech Alumni Association’s 2nd Annual Legacy U camp in hopes of learning more about the university and possibly continuing their family legacy one day.

Through participating in classroom activities and Tech traditions, this event aims to help connect future Red Raiders with their family legacies, said Lori Garcia, coordinator of Legacy U for the alumni association.

“A lot of the grandparents here are alums,” she said. “It’s about) the love for Texas Tech that they have, and I think they just want their grandkids to come and experience what Tech is all about, the atmosphere, the spirit.”

Garcia said the 87 campers and 83 grandparents got to stay on campus during the three-day camp, staying in Talkington Hall and eating in The Commons, adding that both the campers and grandparents enjoyed this aspect of the camp.
