Texas Tech University earlier today officially opened the remodeled Media and Communications Building. The building was previously known as the Business Administration Building and was the original  home to the Rawls College of Business.

The remodel cost $25 million and upgraded life safety, classroom technology and accessibility standards within the whole complex.

“This building will be a valuable asset for the university community in terms of highly functional up-to-date instructional space for our students and faculty,” said Michael Molina, vice chancellor Facilities Planning & Construction.

“Integration of natural daylight into newly designed study/collaboration spaces was a key feature to this successful renovation project. Students now have a great place to work and study between classes,” Molina said.

The dean of the College of Media and Communications, Jerry Hudson is excited about the future of his college, “I think the building, its technology and our faculty will provide a solid foundation for providing opportunities for students to develop the will to learn and the motivation to be successful in their respective careers”.

Many Texas Tech organizations will be housed in the Media and Communications building, including Texas Tech's student radio station, KTXT-FM; Student Media, Army ROTC, Annual Giving Program, Academic Support and Facilities Resources, Atmospheric Science, Communication Studies and the Texas Tech University Press.
