With all the attention on Kingsbury and the football team lately, it's been easy to overlook all of the good going on across the entire Texas Tech system.
You've probably heard the big news of record student enrollment at both the university and the student hospital - over 33,000 this year and well on their way to 40,000.
But there is much more you probably haven't heard.
Did you know officials at Tech have raised over $1 billion in donations in its Visions and Traditions campaign?
Texas Tech ranks the 7th lowest in the United States for student debt.
Texas Tech is the only university in the United States to freeze tuition and fees twice in recent years, and they did that while completing $446 million dollars of campus construction.
And did you know 32,000 local jobs, in some way, are sustained by Texas Tech?
So, bottom line is, if Lubbock is going to succeed, Texas Tech must be successful.
And it looks like they are doing a pretty good job.
