Texas Tech Board of Regents approve $90 million in vet school budget

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

During a special-called meeting Wednesday morning, the Texas Tech University System Board of Regents approved $90 million for the Texas Tech School of Veterinary Medicine. 

The approved project budget is a more than $69 million increase from a budget approved in December.

The revised budget will help fund the completion of the more than 185,000-square-foot facility in Amarillo. It will accommodate 400 students with break-out rooms, office suites and student lockers. 

Texas Tech broke ground on the facility in September of last year, a milestone for the university. 

The Amarillo campus is set to join Texas A&M as the only other vet school in the state, opening its doors in the fall of 2021.

    Warm again Sunday, but windy

    Expect mostly cloudy skies overnight with low temperatures only in the mid 40s, which is a bit above average for this time of year. We're back in the upper 60s again Sunday, even 70s for some areas. With that comes more sunshine by the afternoon, perhaps
