Scholarships: I cannot say much because I'm still currently figuring the financial aid situation out. But according to the TTU website and pamphlets, it looks like the financial aid will be good.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: There are always people wanting to party no matter what day or what time it is. This is a blessing and a curse if you don't have self control, but it makes for a great atmosphere.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Many different options and well spread out among campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus was not the best situation ever, but it's definitely something I don't regret going through. I feel like students living on campus create a sort of community with on another out of mutual discomfort when it comes to i campus living. It's like you are all suffering together so it makes living there a little easier. And knowing you're not alone helps as well.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The variety is great, the prices are generally great and the housing is easily obtained.

Off-Campus Dining: Personally I avoid fast food preferring to buy fresh fruit, but when I do go out to buy food it seems average. There's the average fast food places, along with popular restaurants, with the prices being slightly cheaper than in the bigger cities.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: If you don't get a dorm in school, the apartments outside of the university are pricey and small

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: The dining options off campus are generic, things such as McDonalds. There aren't many "fancy" places or anything too special.

3 College Student

Administration: The strictness is alright. There are not many restrictions but there is also not much lee way given.

4 College Student

Scholarships: The financial aid process was very quick and easy and I got the financial aid very quickly.

4 College Student

Party Scene: There aren't much computer labs but the technology that is offered is very good.

3 College Student

Campus Food: The variety is not very great but for the food that there is, the price is very cheap and easy on the wallet.

Campus Housing: The people are great and very friendly. Housing conditions are pristine.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never looked into living off campus

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: there are dining options off campus that are very close and there are a few restaurants who do delivery which is very convinient

4 College Freshman

Administration: although some things are strict I think its great for the development of the student in a positive way.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
