CASNR's 53rd Homecoming Breakfast set for Oct. 18 in Red Raider Ballroom
Officials with Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources are inviting friends from across campus and the region to the college's 53rd Annual Homecoming Breakfast on Saturday (Oct. 18) at Tech's Student Union Building at 15th Street and Akron Ave. in Lubbock. "This is an excellent opportunity to see and renew old acquaintances with graduates from all the departments," said CASNR Dean Michael Galyean.
The breakfast, which kicks-off at 8 a.m., will be held in the Red Raider Ballroom. Parking will be available in lot R-03, south of Texas Tech's main library. Entry to the lot is from 18th Street near The Maedgen Theatre and Psychology Building. To offset the cost of the event, CASNR officials are encouraging a $10 donation.
Following breakfast, other CASNR activities include a Student-American Society of Landscape Architects tailgate inside RaiderGate. Gates open four hours prior to kick-off in the R1 Parking Lot, north of the CASNR Annex building (old Animal Science Building). All Landscape Architecture department alumni are invited to attend.
CASNR officials note that there will be several activities on tap the day before the breakfast. On Friday (Oct. 17) at 5 p.m. the Department of Animal and Food Sciences is hosting an Open House in AFS Building; and from 5-8 p.m. the Student-American Society of Landscape Architects hosts an alumni social at Lubbock's Triple J Chophouse and Brew Co. at 1807 Buddy Holly Avenue.
Meantime, on Friday from 5:30-8 p.m. the Agricultural Education and Communications Alumni Association hosts a Homecoming Party at the home of Dan and Linda Taylor at 19301 CR 1240, one mile west of FM 179 on FM 41 near Ropesville. Admission is free, but a $10/plate donation is encouraged to help cover costs. To RSVP or for more information contact 806-742-2816 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition on Friday from 5:30-8:30 p.m. the Department of Animal and Food Sciences is hosting its first annual "Friends and Family Event," honoring 2014 Hall of Fame Award Winners, Meat Science Alumni Award Winners, and members of former competitive teams.
