Texas Tech Greeks are venturing into the rough-and-tumble world of rodeo to help
raise awareness about the university’s Therapeutic Riding Center.
Members of some 30 fraternities and sororities will cowboy up in competitions such
as tug-of-war, a calf scramble and hay bale toss n’ stack at the annual Greek Rodeo
at 6 p.m. March 31 at the Texas Tech Equestrian Center.
The event is open to the public and admission is free, though donations are appreciated.
The Equestrian Center is located at 5712 CR 1500 in Southwest Lubbock near Wolfforth.
Visitors should exit Brownfield Highway at Upland Avenue; turn west on 50th Street
and south on Alcove Ave.
