Texas Tech University’s Center for Active Learning and Undergraduate Engagement (CALUE) hosts the 2nd annual Red Raider Palapalooza as part of the 2013 Raider Welcome Week on Aug. 21.
The event will be held at Urbanovsky Park, near the intersection of Flint Avenue and 18th Street in the amphitheater from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Red Raider Palapalooza will include an appearance by Raider Red, door prizes, a live band, free food and other activities for students to enjoy.
Last year, Red Raider Palapalooza had approximately 700 participants attend, and this year they plan for more due to the expansion of the program. Jerylme Robins, unit coordinator for CALUE, said this event is held to bring students together to get to know one another for the upcoming academic year, as well as get them interested and involved in active learning.
A number of partners from Texas Tech and the Lubbock community will be in attendance to speak with students about the opportunities to get involved in active learning activities such as service learning, study abroad and internships.
