Texas Tech Hosts Red Raider Palapalooza

The event takes place Aug. 21 as part of Raider Welcome Week.

Texas Tech University’s Center for Active Learning and Undergraduate Engagement (CALUE) will host the third annual Red Raider Palapalooza on Aug. 21 as part of Raider Welcome Week.

Raider Welcome is a two-week series of free events designed to welcome new and returning students to the Texas Tech campus.

“The Red Raider Palapalooza is a great opportunity for CALUE to bring awareness to active learning at Texas Tech during the excitement of Welcome Week,” Erin Justyna, assistant director for the center for active learning and undergraduate engagement said. “Students have many opportunities on campus to take their degree to the next level, whether in research, service, internships or study abroad.”

The Palapalooza will be held from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at Urbanovsky Park, located off Flint Avenue and 18th Street.

The event will include raffle drawings, music, free food and activities designed to allow students to get to know one another and learn more about the Lubbock community. Campus and community organizations will provide information and giveaways to Texas Tech students throughout the event.

CALUE is committed to supporting and increasing undergraduate participation in active learning at Texas Tech.  Click here for more information.
