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.
