LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The president of Texas Tech University gave his first "State of the University" speech on Wednesday.

Lawrence Schovanec talked about the university's goals and how he hopes it will be able to achieve them.

Schovanec said the future of this university is crucial as it continues to increase student enrollment, while maintaining the best education the school can offer.

Schovanec spoke about the new campus opening up in spring of 2018, Texas Tech University Costa Rica.

He said it's not only important for the university to reflect on the accomplishments achieved, thus far, but to also look ahead.

"As we approach the end of our first century of existence, I would like for us to think about what we’ve done well," he says. "But, what we could do better what should we strive for to enhance this university’s status. So, we are increasingly recognized as a world class institution."

Schovanec also mentioned putting more money into scholarships to attract more students.

"I would hope that when any student thinks about where they want to pursue their college education, they see Texas Tech as second to none, in terms of the alternatives they could pursue," he said.
