Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Should I bring Cash or Card?

Yes, bring both!

While some student organizations might be able to accept cards, others might not. There are no ATMs on the property, so it may be beneficial to have cash in hand. 

Many Students are now using Cashless Apps. Some students may have an option like Square, where you can use a debit or credit card. 

If the weather is bad, will there be a back up plan?

Yes! We do have a backup plan in case the weather changes and alters any plans. If we are rained out, we will push the event back to the following day, October 8th, 11 am - 2 pm, again here at the ICC. 


Where can I park?

There will be Free parking located around the International Culture Center and next door at the Texas Tech Museum. Since this event takes place on a Saturday parking is open.
