Welcome to Tennessee Tech Fans
from TTU President Dr. Philip Oldham

Welcome to the TTUsports.com website!  I am honored to lead an institution that has such tremendous community support for both academics and athletics. I hope you know how much our student-athletes, and everyone at the university, appreciate your attendance at our sporting events.

We all recognize that college athletics greatly enhance not only university spirit but also community pride.  Our student-athletes have a proud tradition of excellence on their playing fields and in their classrooms, and you can take pride in their accomplishments.

Our student-athletes graduate at a rate higher than our student body. Several alumni athletes have gone on to compete on a professional level, attesting to the coaching and guidance they received at TTU. At Tennessee Tech, we have told our student-athletes that we want to see a championship ring on one hand and a college diploma in the other.

Your support helps make that dream possible and keeps the university’s focus on students. Several efforts are underway to foster an energetic, state-of-the-art learning environment. Renovations on the historic Main Quad continue, while the number and types of Learning Villages continue to expand, offering students living environments tailored to their specific interests.

Also, Tennessee Tech has made a significant push to enhance the university’s academic reputation while intensifying its focus on education in the STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and math.

Your support makes Tennessee Tech a student-centered university. Thank you for buying season tickets, attending sporting events, tailgating with friends and wearing purple and gold all year long. I look forward to seeing you at a game soon!  

Phil Oldham
