Texas Tech University will celebrate Arbor Day beginning at noon Friday (April 27)
on the Texas Tech campus at Memorial Circle. Planting will begin at 1:30 p.m.
The band PBM will kick off the festivities starting at 11:50 a.m. until 12:50 p.m.
A short presentation will follow and various student organizations will be honored
for their accomplishments.
Volunteers will offer food and activities all around Memorial Circle and free t-shirts
will be handed out starting at 11 a.m.
Jana Vise, assistant director for Student Union & Activities, said the celebration
is open to everyone on campus.
"Arbor Day is the one time of year where everyone on campus comes together to celebrate
Texas Tech and what a beautiful campus we have," Vise said. "It’s the one occasion
where all of the organizations – Greek, academic, multicultural, even departments
– are out planting side by side."
Got white earbuds? Fans of Apple iPod will be in for a special treat this Arbor Day.

their tent on the East side of Memorial Circle.
