Overall Experience: My school is great because it is large and it cuts across all ethnicity, giving me the chance to relate with various set of people from various walks of life. It is also full of a lot of experience and opportunities.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the school that I go to. The location did take a while to adjust to since it is a college town. Another adjustment that I had to make was getting used to how everyone keeps to their own "kind" or race. It's really divided as a result of cultural organizations and greek life, but as a whole I love my school nonetheless.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a very new experience for me, as I am a long-time big city type of person moving into the panhandle of Texas. I do enjoy the school and the college lifestyle. I am challenged enough in my classes and still get the work done very well and get along with the majority of people. I am an African-American male so there is some racial tension every now and then with my place in the conservative South and very rural area, but I have found that I get along with most of my peers so long as I stay friendly. I am a very well known person at my school and in my class due to my outgoing personality. I am the type of person who always smiles and introduces myself to new people no matter the scene, setting, or situation, and I am always going out to events whether they are school related or simply put together by fellow students. I enjoy many things about my school and enjoy being a part of this school. I am currently in a financial hardship and am looking for a way to cover my expenses for returning to school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the professors, my classes, and my campus. Most of professors are very hands on and want to see you succeed. The campus is beautiful and has some best architecture I've ever seen and I like to work out so the amazing recreation center my college has is one of my favorite places to be. From my experience Texas Tech tries its best to embrace other cultures as in having a Holly Festival. Even though I love my school and I've met some amazing people I'll never forget, I don't think that if I knew how divided the campus was racially I would choose it again. For someone like me who's a minority, but grew up in a big city around all types of people I was for sure shocked when I saw it literally divided black people in one spot and whites in another. But I have to say I've never personally experienced racism at my school and wouldn't call it racist at all, everyone I met at Texas Tech so far have been very nice. I don't believe that it's purposely done I just think people would prefer to be with people more like them. It's just very strange to me.

Overall Experience: This school has been amazing so far. I love the atmosphere, the people, the academics, the campus, and all the activities. Ever since my first time visiting I was set on being a part of this wonderful environment. I have always been interested in occupational therapy and it made it easier for me to chose Tech because they offered an amazing program for the major I was interested in. My overall experience with this university has been incredible and I couldn't ask for a better place to spend my next four years.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The staff and students really are there for you

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The personnel at Texas Tech really makes the difference. It is a growing school with thousands of students, but the professors, advisors, and employees take the time to address your problems and concerns. You rarely feel like just another face; they really make every effort to help you have a successful academic career.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wasn't my actual original decision to choose a school in Texas, but I made the best of it and it actually started to grow on me. Though, I may never get the chance to have a go at my dream school, I feel quite comfortable and have taken a bit of joy in being a Texas Tech student. I mean after all, I wouldn't have experienced the things that I have, or met the people that I have met. Therefore, it all works out.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I go to Texas Tech University and I LOVE it. In high school, all my friends would talk badly about Texas Tech because Lubbock is not known to be one of the nicest towns in Texas. However I like Lubbock (haboobs and all) and I love Tech and couldn't imagine myself anywhere else!

Overall Experience: Texas Tech class sizes range about 15 to around 150 in my experience. I usually have about 30-40 people in my classes unless it is a core requirement course. These courses tend to have a lot more people. The weather is crazy, one day hot, the next day cold. There was a day that it started out snowing but by the end of the day it was like 75-80 degrees F. most of the professors are very nice, especially in the human sciences department. The workload varies depending on the class but I would say we receive a good amount of homework. Most of the time not too much. The science and math courses have a lot of online homework so you definitely need to buy the books for those classes because that is how you access it. Overall the students and staff are friendly.

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed every part of my school so far. I love going to football games and tailgates. Living in the dorm wasn't so bad, I liked having a friend almost anywhere on my floor or others. Classes are challenging but totally worth it. I love everything about my school.

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.

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.
