LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Funny. It's like Texas Tech school officials don't think their students' minds will be on their schoolwork Monday night.

The University will dismiss class at 5 p.m. Monday and has canceled them altogether for Tuesday as the Red Raiders head to the NCAA Championship.

According to a notice from Texas Tech, all classes scheduled after 5 p.m. on Monday and all classes on Tuesday are canceled.

Students who traveled to Minneapolis on Friday and those who will stay in the city for the game on Monday will be granted make-up opportunities for classwork missed on Friday, April 5 and Monday.

Classes will resume as scheduled on Wednesday, April 10. Academic buildings and the Library will close at 6 p.m. Monday night, but reopen at 8 Tuesday morning.

According to Texas Tech, non-academic buildings will operate normally, both Monday evening and Tuesday, unless otherwise indicated.
