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 57th Annual Homecoming Breakfast on Saturday (Oct. 20) at Tech's Student Union Building at 15th Street and Akron Ave. in Lubbock.
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.
"A college tradition since 1961, CASNR's Homecoming Breakfast gives our friends, faculty and staff an opportunity to enjoy food, fellowship, student club and organization booths, a photo booth and more," said CASNR Dean William Brown.
Following breakfast, other CASNR activities include the Department of Landscape Architecture hosting building tours for the department's renovated space in the CASNR Annex building located on the corner of 15th and Detroit.
