Texas Tech University will participate in National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week starting Oct. 19. The events will end Oct. 24 with a Pack the Jones Watch Party for the Texas Tech – Oklahoma game. The week is hosted by several on-campus departments including Student Union & Activities, Risk Intervention & Safety Education (RISE) and University Student Housing.
