New TTU Campus Pictures - 3/25/2015

The tulips are in full bloom across campus as spring as arrived on the south plains. The snow and ice from a couple of weeks ago hurt the early blooms, which caused some inconsistency across campus and not all areas flowered at the same time.

A Little Winter Art by Mother Nature

The recent storm to pass through Lubbock has kept temperatures under freezing for a number of days and the cold weather has produced plenty of unique icicles and a phenomenon called Hoar Frost that is created by frozen fog.

The Hoar Frost made the Lubbock area look like a Christmas card yesterday as almost every surface was covered with the frost that creates "spikes".

This group of shots from campus include the new synthetic turf intramural fields located north of the John Walker Soccer complex, the Bayer Seed Innovation Center and Greenhouses, the new Bayer CropScience Plant and Soil Science addition, and the new beautification project around the main entrance of campus.

The Daily Toreador recently had an article highlighting the expansion of the institutional research on the Texas Tech campus.

The grand opening of the new intramural fields will take place tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 and the fields will be open to students after the ceremony.

New TTU Campus Pictures - 1/25/2015

Lots of activity across campus as a new year gets underway.

This group of pictures includes the new beautification project near the Broadway entrance of campus, the new public art pieces near architecture and the creative movement studio, the seat removal project at Jones AT&T Stadium, the new synthetic turf intramural fields near the John Walker Soccer complex, the new entrance at the Rawls Golf Course, the first phase of the new research park, and the new additional to the Plant and Soil Science Building.

They have all the trees in along the Broadway entrance and are renovating the fountain behind the school seal. Instead of red brick, the fountain will now feature the white stone that will match the stone on the campus buildings.

The new piece of public artwork near the architecture building is a replica of the Robert Bruno steel house at Ransom Canyon.

Steel is now going up on the new Plant and Soil Science addition.
