After Texas Tech University
- Very Good1616
I love Texas Tech University. Ever since I was younger, I knew this was the school I would earn my degree from. I am majoring in Landscape Architecture and at first my plan was to transfer over to Architecture after one semester but I absolutely loved the program that I decided to stay and pursue Landscape Architecture. One of the reasons that my career path was influenced was the professors. They are absolutely amazing and I have learned a lot in the two and a half short years i have been there. The campus is pretty big but once you get familiarized with the buildings and the bus routes is pretty easy. Almost everyday day you see clubs, sororities/fraternities, TTU events out by our speech area promoting their clubs and wanting to recruit other people. I would like to see more greenery and I am not just saying that because I am a Landscape Major. Overall I love this university. The academics are great, it has great traditions and who doesn't want to be a red raider!

Texas Tech is awesome! The school spirit is the best. Football games are extremely fun. There are great traditions like the Carol of Light, throwing tortillas at football games (even though it's technically not allowed), the Masked Rider, Saddle Tramps, and more! Most professors are very knowledgeable of their subject and teach very well. Professors are always happy to help during their office hours. Beautiful campus. PLENTY of organizations to get involved with and several events on campus to keep you busy! Events almost always give away free food.

Although it's my first year at Texas Tech University, there are a few experiences I can share about this college. I have been fortunate to be able to stay in Murray, a residential hall that allows students to have their own private bedroom. Instead of having to use communal bathrooms, Murray residents share one bathroom with one roommate. The campus itself is also very great, with ample trees and numerous eating locations. I am also surprised with the diversity at Texas Tech. Seeing that the school is located in west Texas, I didn't think that the diversity would be this high. I plan on continuing my B.S. in Biochemistry here and look forward to what lays ahead. Wreck Em'!
