The Best Event for Texas Tech Students to Get to Know Lubbock
The start of the fall semester will be here before you know it. This means getting back to campus, learning your new class schedule, and figuring out what kind of stuff you want to do around town.
Learning more about Lubbock and what it has to offer is highly valuable for students, especially those that aren’t originally from the Hub City. There are so many things students can do off-campus, but it can be a bit intimidating figuring out where you should go and what is worth it.
This is why Texas Tech hosts their annual Hub City Fest in order to show their students what Lubbock has to offer.
The event is happening on campus in the R-11 Band Parking Lot at 18th and Akron Ave. It will be on Friday, August 25, 2023, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
There will be a wide variety of vendors including local businesses, Texas Tech clubs and organizations, music, freebies, and more.
This year features large door prizes given out every 15-20 minutes, and the first 1,500 students will receive a free Texas Tech laundry bag. In order to be entered to win any prizes, or to get the laundry bag, you must have a valid student ID to scan.
I used to participate in these events as a part of the student-run radio station, and it was always fun to see all the fresh faces, local businesses, and goodies. For more information about the event, you can visit ttu.edu.
