Each spring semester, the Honors College coordinates the Passport Program, an optional offshoot of the required First-Year Experience Program. The goals of the program are to further connect our students to the Lubbock and Texas Tech communities and strengthen their critical reflection skills, as well as to promote more effective communication skills in a non-classroom setting
Students just coming out of their first fall semester in the Honors College choose either an Arts & Academics Track or a Community Service Track and log ten to fifteen hours a month for February, March, and April. At the end of the first two months, they submit a written reflection of their experiences and are then eligible for a sizable award to be applied to the next fall's tuition!
For a list of the activities available to our Arts & Academics Track students, take a look at the blog created by A&A Track Coordinator, Clara Bush.
