THE PERKS OF BEING A SADDLE TRAMP

As a Saddle Tramp you get to experience Texas Tech University in a way that is unique from students in any other organization, fraternity, or group on campus.

BEST SEATS IN THE HOUSE

Saddle Tramps have some of the best seats available at every home Football, Basketball, and Baseball game. Skip the line, and walk right to the Saddle Tramp section at every home game.

TRADITION

Be a part of the most important traditions of Texas Tech, and learn what it truly means to be a Red Raider. Saddle Tramps get to experience more of Texas Tech in one semester than many do during their entire college career.

MUCH MORE

Saddle Tramps get many opportunities that are not typical for Texas Tech Students. Whether it is being on TV, shagging fouls at baseball games, barbecues and skeet shooting with alumni, or occasional trips to out of town games. You never know what may come up.

THE PROCESS

Saddle Tramps is a non-greek Fraternity based around sports. We have a rush period every first week of each Fall and Spring semesters. Rush events are normally posted about a week in advance and will be posted on here in our Newsletter and on all forms of social media. The goal of these rush events is for us to get to know you and to make sure you are a good fit for the organization. After a few of these events, we will have a bid night. This is the night where you either make it into the greatest organization on campus, or you don't. If you do make it, you will be considered a pledge where you will learn directly from us and how we, as an org, operate. If you don't make it, do not be discouraged. You can always come out again during the next rush period. If you wish to rush this great organization, click the email button below, this will put you in contact with the Rush committee head who will keep you informed on when events are and what to wear. Just send your full name, phone number, hometown, and just something about you. If you're not so sure yet, keep scrolling to find more reasons why you should rush Saddle Tramps.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT?

As a pledge, you will have study hall twice a week for 2 hours, a meeting once a week, and any games or events we may have come up during the week. With that said, it may sound like a lot but it really isn't that bad. You will still have plenty of time to study, and hangout with your friends.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

We have semesterly dues. As a pledge you will be paying $350. It can be paid by credit card, upfront with cash or check, or in payments. We know $350 can be a lot but, unlike other organizations, everything you pay goes right back to you in the form of your very own customizable Bell, tons of new shirts, food from our smoker, mixers we throw with other organizations, or brotherhood events. We pay much less for the same value as a frat and we get to do a lot more and get a lot more out of it. Other organizations wish they could sit front row, light the homecoming bonfire, and be allowed field and court access at games. Paying the dues is absolutely 100% worth what you get out of it.

DO YOU HAZE YOUR NEW MEMBERS?

Our policy is, we won't do anything to you that we wouldn't want done to us. With that said, there are things that every new member must do. None of which will cause you harm or put you in any sort of danger. The type of things you must do are just to introduce you to the active members and for you to learn our traditions in a very easy way. Please feel free to email the 2nd Vice President if you have any further questions.

WHAT ABOUT GRADES? IS THERE A MINIMUM GPA REQUIREMENT?

You are a student first, Saddle Tramp second. We want you to succeed in your field of study so you can go out into the world after graduation and represent the organization the best you can. Our minimum GPA requirement is a 2.0. Same as Texas Tech's. As a pledge there will be study hall opportunities. If you do not make a 2.0, you will be put on probation and will be required to attend that semester's study halls. It is not a punishment but it is a way for us to help you out with your grades.
