5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: TTU is so open and friendly, I love the atmosphere so much from the people to the campus itself. It does take some time to get used to when it comes to being far away from family, coming from a family-oriented family. I wish I started with the major I have now, so I didn't have to take useless classes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love TTU and I wouldn't want to attend any other school for my undergrad. I chose Tech over a lot of better ranked schools but Tech feels like home.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my two years college. I went to South Plains College in Levelland. It was a small campus and small size classrooms. But the Instructors and everybody there were very friendly and help others a lot.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Texas Tech University take great care of it's students and help then anyway they can. Being a student with a disability they are one of the few that do anything to help me out so I do well. They also have teachers that have expanded my knowledge and ideas.

Off-Campus Housing: There are buses that pick students up from all the apartments. The cheaper the apartment, the worse it is.

Administration: They don't really bother you unless you do something really stupid.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: for those without dining plans, its pretty expensive and most of the food is just fatty.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I lost mine but as an international student it was great because it helped waive my non resident fees

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The rooms are small and there is absolutely no privacy unless you go for the more expensive options.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The menu is pretty much the same throughout campus,exceptit is a lot more cheaper at the Market.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Sometimes the financial process takesa while, but once received it goes well.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The party scene can be a lot of fun as long as you know people who are down to have a good time as well as keep each other safe.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I wish there was a more affordable variety and also places that stayed open later.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing can be a bit over priced but if it close to campus then it is worth it. The added freedom of not having to be on campus is also nice.

3 College Junior

Administration: I don't really have a problem with the administration at Tech and I have never had to deal with them.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Overall I like the dining options on campus the food is convenient and easy to get to. However I wish the dining plans weren't so expensive because you almost pay more for the service charges than you get for actual food.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Its been a headache to deal with the financial aid people and they aren't really willing to help out. Best tip I have is apply as early you can for scholarships both through the school and outside.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I enjoy living on campus because it is easier to get to classes and I am more prone to study than when I'm off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's ok, just be careful of what neighborhood you live in. A lot of the parties get busted for noise complaints.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is ok. The cheaper the rent, the worse it is. Unfortunately, the better the complex, the more expensive it gets. :(

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.
