By: Norman Martin
Officials with Texas Tech's Davis College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources are inviting friends from across campus and the region to the college's 61th Annual Homecoming Breakfast at 8 a.m. on Saturday (Oct. 22) in the Matador Room & Lounge on the second floor of the Student Union Building located 15th Street and Akron Ave. on campus.
“A college tradition since 1961, Davis College's Homecoming Breakfast gives our friends, faculty and staff an opportunity to enjoy food, fellowship, student club and organization booths and more,” said Davis College Interim Dean Cindy Akers. The breakfast is free; however, to offset the cost program officials are encouraging a $20 per person donation.
Due to construction on campus, and game day reserved parking, guest parking for the breakfast will be available in lot R01 located on 15th Street just east of Flint Ave. A golf cart shuttle will be available. Parking is also available in the Flint Ave. Parking Garage.
Following the breakfast, Davis College is teaming with Capital Farm Credit to host a tailgate prior to the football game. The location is on the northwest corner of Jones AT&T Stadium, parking lot C1, space 1049. The tailgate will start three hours prior to a game time of 2 p.m. Admission is free, and food, drinks, and live entertainment (weather permitting) by 2021 Davis College grad Dan Patterson will be provided. Immediately following the breakfast, the Department of Landscape Architecture will be hosting building tours for the department's renovated spaces in the Agricultural Pavilion and Davis College Annex.
Davis College officials note that there will be several activities on tap the day before the breakfast.
On Friday (Oct. 21) alumni and supporters of the Department of Animal & Food Sciences are hosting their annual ‘Hall of Fame & Meat Science Awards' starting at 5 p.m. in the Animal & Food Sciences Atrium and Room 101. Honorees will include the 2022 Hall of Fame and meat science award winners. At 6:30 p.m. a memorial service for long-serving dairy scientist and teacher, Max Miller, will begin at the Ranching Heritage Center.
In addition, the Texas Tech Chapter of The Wildlife Society is hosting their ‘7th Annual Game Dinner & Raffle' at the Texas Tech Dairy Barn starting at 6:30 p.m. Alumni, families, and friends of the Department of Natural Resources Management are welcome. Those attending will have an opportunity to participate in raffles, sample game dishes, and visit with students and faculty. Admission is free with a prepared dish. Otherwise, a $10 donation is encouraged to help offset costs to travel to The Wildlife Society Annual Meeting in Spokane, Washington to receive their 2022 National Student Chapter of the Year Award.
