After new legislation passed in the state house and senate in 1921, Governor Pat Neff vetoed it, citing hard financial times in West Texas. Chitwood, the chairman of the House Education Committee, who became the first Texas Tech business manager, spoke at the event. Sterling, was the architect of all campus PWA projects.

Furious about Neff's veto, some in West Texas went so far as to recommend West Texas secede from the state. Chitwood served in the position only fifteen months; he died in November 1926. During the 1930s, Bradford Knapp, the university's second president, proceeded with an expansion program, which included new dormitories, the first library (now the mathematics building), a golf course, a swimming pool, paved streets and alleys, and landscaping. Because the state cut appropriations by 30% at the start of the Great Depression, President Knapp applied for assistance from the major New Deal agencies to expand Texas Tech, including the Works Progress Administration, Public Works Administration (PWA), Civil Works Administration, and the National Youth Administration. Military training was conducted at the college as early as 1925, but formal Reserve Officers' Training Corps training did not start until 1936.

The university's student enrollment is the seventh-largest in Texas as of the Fall 2017 semester.

College Station is a city in Brazos County, Texas, situated in East Central Texas in the heart of the Brazos Valley.

The city is located within the most populated region of Texas, near three of the 10 largest cities in the United States - Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio. College Station and Bryan together make up the Bryan-College Station metropolitan area, the sixteenth largest metropolitan area in Texas with 203,371 people.

The Texas Tech University system originally included Texas Tech University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

On November 6, 2007, the voters of Texas approved an amendment to the Texas Constitution realigning Angelo State University with the Texas Tech University System.

In spite of objections by many students and faculty, the Board of Directors again submitted the change in 1969.

It finally received the legislature's approval on June 6 and the name Texas Tech University went into effect that September.

Texas Tech was integrated in 1961 when three African-American students were admitted.

After its initial rejection of the students' enrollment and the threat of a lawsuit, the university enacted a policy to admit "all qualified applicants regardless of color".

Texas Tech University has awarded over 200,000 degrees since 1927, including over 40,000 graduate and professional degrees.
