Greek Life: I have nothing really to say here. Most of the people I know who are involved in Greek life are happy. It does seem to attract the stereotypical crowds though when it comes to Greek life. Expect oversized t-shirts for Sorority girls and snapback and patagonia gear for the Fray boys.

Athletics: Being a Red Raider also means you are passionate about athletics on campus. Football is king in Texas and football here is a snapshot of just that.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Texas Tech is a great school. I like the fact it has worked strenuously obtain tier one status. School spirit is amazing and the academics are hit and miss like almost every school, but overall very good. Don't be deceived by the acceptance rate.

Health & Safety: There is a police presence, but there are some reports of people being assaulted or robbed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Best out of all the schools I was looking at. It really was an easy choice.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I see the shirts everywhere and meet lots of folks who partake in the Greek life. It looks like a lot of fun, but I hear that it takes up a lot of your time.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I cannot speak from the standpoint of a participant, but from what I've observed, athletics is rocking up here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are very challenging, but there are many resources one can use to succeed. Our school has opportunities for involvement. We have many organizations. I am involved in Engineers Without Borders (EWB) and FOR ME (For Mechanical Engineers). I would go to the school again but I would not want to do it all over again because it took hard work and a lot of time, and sometimes I wonder how did I get there or how did I survive that class? Overall it was a good experience and I am currently experiencing more.

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.
