Raider Welcome is a week series of FUN and FREE events designed to welcome new and returning students to the Texas Tech campus. Raider Welcome occurs the week before classes start (after Residence Hall move-in) and throughout the first week of classes.

While Raider Welcome is coordinated by Transition & Engagement and University Student Housing, the week would not be successful without the support of campus departments and members of the Texas Tech and Lubbock communities. If your group would like to host an event during Raider Welcome, please complete this online Event Submission Form. Submissions are due Dec. 6th, 2017 at 5:00PM.

Moonlight Broadway Presents: Miracle on 34th Street

November 20, 24, and 25 at 7:30 PM
November 25 and 26 at 2:00 PM
Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Theatre

This Thanksgiving, fill your hearts with the miracle of family and friendship at Moonlight Broadway’s production of Meredith Willson’s Miracle on 34th Street!

Based on the beloved films and with a musical score by Meredith Willson, Miracle on 34th Street tells the tale of a single-mother, Doris, and her struggle to balance work, her young daughter, the loving guy across the hall who wants to be more than friends, and many years worth of dashed dreams and a hurting heart. Then one year at the Thanksgiving Day Parade, a man named Kris Kringle appears just as a replacement driver is being sought for the Parade’s Santa Sleigh. By expressing kindness, generosity, forgiveness, compassion, and love, Kris prompts people to remember the reason for the season and their lives begin to change.

Tickets available at any Select-A-Seat location, by calling 806-770-2000, or visiting SelectASeatLubbock.com.
