Texas Tech Plants Tradition with Arbor Day Celebration

Hundreds of faculty, staff and students join forces to beautify campus.

Texas Tech University marked its annual celebration of sustainability and community this week, with its annual Arbor Day event Friday (April 25).

The event is a partnership among Student Union & Activities, Hospitality Services, Center for Campus Life, Tech Activities Board, Grounds Maintenance and the Texas Tech Ethics Center.

“Arbor Day is a great opportunity for Red Raiders to come together to beautify the campus and understand the importance of service while building a sense of community,” said Kimberly Simon-Akins, assistant director for Student Union & Activities. “It allows for students, faculty, staff and alumni to celebrate in a fun way by enjoying music, food and planting right in the heart of campus.”
