Texas Tech Provides Students a Way to Get Home for Spring Break

LUBBOCK, TX (Press release) - Texas Tech University's Parents Association has reserved buses to transport students to and from Lubbock during Spring Break 2011. The trips are organized to assist students with the chance to return home to see their families for the break.

"The lower travel cost and great peace of mind that comes in a safer traveling environment helps Texas Tech students stay safer while on the road," said Ken Gassiot, associate director of Parent and Family Relations. "These trips are meant to be a stress-free, low-cost and a fun way for students to travel while meeting other students."

Two buses will depart from Lubbock on March 11; one is destined for Arlington, and the other arriving in San Antonio and Austin. The last bus will depart Lubbock on March 12 and will make two drop-offs near North Houston, one in Spring and one at the Northwest Mall. All three buses will depart from the Music Building lot on the Texas Tech campus at 18th Street and Boston Avenue. All buses return to Lubbock on March 20.

The cost is $100, and seating is limited and based on a first-come, first-served basis. Tech Parents Association will have parent chaperones riding to help provide guidance for all student passengers. For more information and online registration forms go to www.parent.ttu.edu. The deadline to sign up is 5 p.m. March 1.
