Biographical Sketch

Officially opened on March 13, 1953, the University Center, now called the Student Union Building, houses the offices of various campus organizations and student services. The Student Union Program Council was responsible for planning and organizing various social events, such as the Speakers and Artists Series, movies, dance performances and entertainers. By the 1990s, University Center Programs became the administering body and the social events were renamed as the Nightlife Series.

In the spring of 2002, the Texas Tech University departments of Student Activities and Student Life merged to form the Center for Campus Life (CCL). The Center for Campus Life is responsible for arranging cultural and social events to enrich the lives of Texas Tech students, faculty and the general public. The Center for Campus Life is responsible for the oversight of Texas Tech Social Fraternities and Sororities and serves as the liaison between Greek organizations, their alumni, and the Texas Tech University administration.
