Ten days later, the cornerstone of the Administration Building was laid in front of 20,000 people. but the Board of Directors chose Texas Tech University, submitting it to the state legislature in 1964.
A failed move by Governor John Connally to have the school placed into the Texas A&M University System, as well as continued disagreement and heated debate over the school's new name, kept the name change from being approved.
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.

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.
Texas Tech University alumni and former students have gone on to prominent careers in government, business, science, medicine, education, sports, and entertainment., and originally known as Texas Technological College, it is the flagship institution of the four-institution Texas Tech University System.The university's student enrollment is the seventh-largest in Texas as of the Fall 2017 semester.In 2003, a third-year student at the Texas Tech School of Law filed suit against the university over its policy on free speech zones, which restricted student speech to a single "free speech gazebo".To meet the demands of its increased enrollment and expanding research, the university has invested more than 8 million in new construction since 2000.
