4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had wonderful experiences with my professors. They all are very knowledgeable and caring. I've had a really valuable learning experience. The class sizes vary greatly from 50 to 400 but no matter the size, the class is still ran very effectively.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am going to school for my nursing degree. Therefore, right now I am pre nursing. Tech's nursing school is one of the best and very competitive to get into, but I am hoping for the best. The prerequisite classes I am taking now are challenging but rewarding to my major.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Night life is very enjoyable. It's good for a smaller town. Could be more options but for the size of Lubbock it's great

3 College Junior

Majors: Business school has some pretty lucrative connections with oil and gas.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: What you put into it is what you get out of it. Therefore, your experience at Tech will be what you want it to be. There is a time for everything. A time to party and a time to study and if you balance them out then you will have a good time at Texas Tech.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Local Atmosphere is not that great but just make a lot of friends and you will have a good time.

3 College Junior

Academics: Professors are willing to work with you just pay attention and you will make the grades.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Many of the apartments are the same. The price is around the same for each; however, the major drawback is management. Many of the off-campus housing get bad reviews in that they don't fix anything and that management doesn't care.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lubbock has a ton of restaurants to get too. There are many places to eat right off campus or just drive a little ways and you will see all types of restaurants.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had the opportunity to do an internship so I have no review on the matter.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have been into a program yet, but the staff can inform you about how to get into these programs.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most people that go to tech are from the Texas area what is mostly religious. There are some international students but not enough to say that there are a lot.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't go out much but when I do I have a great time. There is one hot spot that most people go to but there are several clubs around the tech area.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not big into the Greek life, but have several friends in it and enjoy it. It doesn't affect the campus too much; however, there are always girls or guys bragging about how big their party was this weekend.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have had friends who have had scholarships and grants go to financial aid and came back with no answers. I have personally gone in there and tried to get a question answered and came back more confused.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The Rec center is one of the most popular spots on campus. Going in at 5 you will barely be able to find a machine to workout on. It's a great place to meet new people and is an amazing facility. The tradition is there at Tech maybe not as big as some other schools but is still there and strong.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: With the dorms to eat at the SUB and many more places the variety of food is great at Tech. I normally just hit up the SUB, but there are many place to eat and the food is good quality.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of students who are into the Greek life at Tech, but I am not one of them. Sometimes they come to class and just don't care and talk about parties while the others are trying to listen to the professor. Other than that the people are very friendly and will help out if you have a question.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived with my parents the first year, but the atmosphere around campus is amazing. When football time comes it's like all of the students go to the game. If you put yourself out there you can make many new friends with activities around campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I have loved Texas Tech. The atmosphere is amazing around sporting events and there are many things to do around campus to stay busy. I have no problem with registration for classes but talking to finical aid is sometimes difficult.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The reviews of Tech from outsiders looking in are usually mixed or negative. It's stereotyped as a party school in the middle of nowhere, where going to class takes a backseat to having a beer. Although Thursday nights are big in Lubbock, students who attend Tech get not only a great education but a chance to explore who they are and what they are good at in a laid-back environment. Texas Tech has it all, or all you need anyway. Whether you want to load each semester with 18 hours and be done a semester early, or you choose to take a fifth-year victory lap, Tech is as challenging as each individual wants to make it. Four years will fly by, and students who leave with only a head full of facts have only taken in a small percentage of what Tech has to offer. Even though Lubbock may not be huge, the network of people it brings together is. The relationships built in Lubbock while studying for finals or just hanging out easily transfer to post-college life. More importantly, these relationships make the time you spend in college unforgettable and irreplaceable.

A major aspect of any college experience is road trips. They are a chance to get out of "the everyday" and go somewhere else for football games, fraternity parties, or visiting high school friends. Since Lubbock is so far away from the most visited cities, the carpools are always big, loud, and fun. But, as good a time as you have on these trips, the best part is the feeling you get on Sunday when you are ready to get back to Lubbock. Tech is a big school in a small town, and for this reason, students will either find their niche and spend four years living it up in Lubbock, or they will get out after their first year or even their first semester. The students who decide to stay, and the alumni who made it through, have a love and appreciation for Tech that never seems to fade. Texas Tech is a place where friends are easy to find and grades are easy to get, as long as you put in the effort. Tech graduates will all have different stories to tell or nights to remember, but everyone is sure to leave with at least a little part of themselves left behind in Lubbock.
