CASNR's 54th Homecoming Breakfast set for Oct. 10 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 54th Annual Homecoming Breakfast on Saturday (Oct. 10) 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-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 $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 departmental alumni are invited to attend.
