Overall Experience: I love Texas Tech. It is a great school. I very much enjoy the public art collection.

Athletics: I did not participate in any sports while attending Texas Tech, but I did use the recreational center and pools. The facilities are great. There is a weight room, many work out machines, rock climbing wall, indoor track, indoor/outdoor pool, lazy river, volleyball courts, indoor/outdoor basketball courts etc.

Overall Experience: I graduated in 2015 with a degree in Business Finance at Texas Tech University. The Campus was nice and enjoyable to be on, but I found the faculty to be stuffy and unapproachable. Greek life is big at Tech, so if you aren't in a frat or sorority it's a bit harder to find a niche of friends.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not really seen a lot of student career prospects and many people advertising job/internship prospects, and I would like to see more. I want to be able to find more jobs or have a job while I'm a student here but I have only seen one option so far.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far it has been pretty great. The professors are amazing and are always wanting to help students, and some of the courses can be challenging but nothing you don't expect going in. There are a variety of different class sizes depending on which courses you take-- a lot of my general courses like chemistry, nutrition, and psychology have 300 students, and some like human development and philosophy classes have as many as 40 students in a class. They are all pretty good learning environments and all the students are focused and ready to learn which makes making me focused a lot easier.

Health & Safety: We are required to go through an extensive alcohol and sexual assault online course before starting our semester at Tech. There are tons of resources available for anyone who wants to talk about their experience if they want to including anonymous hotlines.

Campus Housing: I live in Talkington Hall and it is the nicest housing option on the Texas Tech campus. There aren't many amenities, but they feature study rooms on each hall that are spacious and great for study sessions.

Greek Life: Personally I never joined a sorority because of how expensive it is and it's not something I would really want to be apart of because of how most of the students who take part in it party way too much. But everyone I have met who has taken a part of Greek life is so friendly and it is not clique like at all.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is my first year at Texas Tech University and so far it has been pretty great. Everyone in Lubbock is so friendly, and most of my professors are so funny and make learning a lot easier by relating to their students and to real life situations. The only thing I don't like about TTU is how it is out in the middle of nowhere, but overall it is amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am learning so much and having much fun!

Health & Safety: Walking on campus during the day feels very safe. Campus alerts seem timely and descriptive. Walking with a buddy at night is a good idea, but I don't feel unsafe.

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.
