Students in Ring Ceremony

Thirty-two TTUHSC students from the Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Health Professions and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences attended the Official Ring Ceremony and received their rings from Texas Tech University System Chancellor and TTUHSC President Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D. 

The ring ceremony includes presentations on the history of TTUHSC and the ring tradition. All current students and alumni who receive their class ring during the year are welcome to participate in the ceremony.

Today, TTUHSC serves 4,000 students across the nation and boasts almost 28,000 alumni, 24 percent of whom remained in the university’s 108-county service area.
