Texas Tech University's Student Health Services is kicking off its annual neighbor to neighbor program in the Tech Terrace area.
Known for its issues with student partying, university representatives will be walking door to door welcoming students to the area and making them aware of alcohol related problems.
Representatives will begin going door to door at about 5 p.m. Wednesday and dropping off pamphlets addressing alcohol issues, roommate relationships, and tips for being a good neighbor.
"This program is designed to provide students who live off campus with information currently provided to on-campus students in an effort to prevent alcohol-related problems before they start," Texas Tech health educator Delia Tibbs said.
The door to door event will start at 4 p.m. and end at dusk on Sept. 28 in the Tech Terrace neighborhood.
