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 56th Annual Homecoming Breakfast on Saturday (Oct. 21) 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 Steven Fraze, Interim Dean of Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
The breakfast, which kicks-off at 8 a.m., will be held in the Red Raider Ballroom. Parking is available in lot R-13, east of Drane Hall. Attendees can enter the lot on University Ave. and 15th St. ADA shuttles will be available. The breakfast is free; however, to offset the cost, program officials are encouraging a $15 donation.
Following breakfast, other CASNR activities include American Society of Landscape Architects' students hosting new building tours from 10 to 11 a.m. for the renovated Department of Landscape Architecture space in the CASNR Annex building located on the corner of 15th and Detroit.
Later in the day, the Red Raiders face the Iowa State Cyclones. Visit www.texastech.com for exact game time and details. For football ticket information contact the Athletic Ticket Office at (888) GO-BIG12 or (806) 742-4412, and for lodging information in Lubbock check www.visitlubbock.org.

Meanwhile, Tech's Agricultural Education and Communications Alumni Association is hosting an alumni reunion from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Friday (Oct. 20) at the home of Dan and Linda Taylor located at 19301 CR 1240, one mile west of FM 179 on FM 41 near Ropesville.
