Orientation began with a welcome session and a free lunch.
Jillian Calvit, Office of Campus Life Student Assistant, said students meet with their advisers to discuss what classes they would like to take.
"Everybody has to come because you have to sign up for classes."
Many schools now have their incoming freshman sign up for classes online but Calvit said the students get a better understanding of the classes speaking directly with their advisers.
"Texas Tech is all about being personal and being friendly. That's part of orientation is that customer service and that friendliness."
It's also a great opportunity for students and their families to meet with financial aid and student business services.
"They can speak with them privately, turn in any scholarships, set up a payment plan. If they've got questions about money, whether it's giving it or it being taken, those questions will be answered."
You go over pretty much everything you need to know and whatever questions you still have can be answered
Calvit said one thing you don't need to worry about is your new life on campus.
"Future students don't panic about being accepted or anything like that, don't worry it will happen."
