In West Texas, the best parts of a story always seem to happen around high noon.
Today was no different as students, faculty, staff and supporters gathered at midday on the Texas Tech University campus to mark the end of a three year project and the completion of a new building for the Rawls College of Business.
Texas Tech University System officials cut the ceremonial red ribbon at the college’s new home at Flint Avenue near Ninth Street, which is located west of Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park. The new location anchors the entrance to campus from the Marsha Sharp Freeway, which campus planners refer to as the north campus gateway.
“This is a spectacular building,” said Kent Hance, chancellor of the Texas Tech University System. “We’re on the cutting-edge of facilities, and also top students and top faculty.”
