Welcome to the September 2019 edition of HDFS Buzz, the newsletter of the Texas Tech University Department of Human Development and Family Studies. We look forward to a semester full of discovery, excitement, and productivity!
In this edition, you will read about our inaugural HDFS Study Abroad in London and learn about our two new faculty members, Dr. Gabriel “Joey” Merrin and Dr. Christy Rogers. We are thrilled to have these scholars join our HDFS family. In addition, our department hosted several educational camps and events this summer that translate our academic scholarship to engagement in the Lubbock community. Our alumni continue to make an impact in the community and beyond. Mark your calendars to celebrate our first alumni reception on October 18 from 4:00-5:00 PM before the College of Human Sciences homecoming parade watch party. In addition, we will be hosting an alumni and friends reception at the National Council on Family Relations conference in Fort Worth on Friday, November 22. Look for an invitation soon.
As always, I encourage you to stay in touch and share your latest news and accomplishments with the HDFS community. Thank you for helping us celebrate the many achievements in Human Development and Family Studies.
