5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had a great experience living on campus and I'm living on campus again.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not apart of the Greek life, so I can't really accurately rate this. Greek life is not something I would ever join.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I think that all our facilities are amazing. We always get in free to sporting events, which I think is one of the reasons my school is almost like one big family. I love the gym as well.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school more than anything. It has become my home very quickly and there's so many opportunities to get involved that you're never bored or not busy. I feel very confident with my classes and the direction I'm going with my life.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are people of all creeds, colors, and nations here at Tech. You can walk to class and overhear many languages being spoken among students. There are some small extreme groups on campus that are aggressive but likelihood is you won't run into them but maybe once or twice in a four year period.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Really if you are there to party you can find alcohol and weed easily, but for the rest of us the most we will see is some alcohol for casual drinking, where you won't see people frequently drunk.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors here are generally teaching because they love it and they want you to succeed as long as you as a student are willing to put in the work. If you do your part they will respect that and do what they can to make sure you are walking away from their class with the best understanding you can have on the subject at hand.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The university has done a great job of making a degree from their school very prestigious to recruiters and they have also done a great job of giving students the best chance to meet these recruiters by bringing them in for job fairs frequently.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus security is very good but do to the surrounding city its best to try to stay on campus and only go out in groups off campus for your own safety.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The only complaint you could have about housing is that if you live on campus you have to have a dining plan. If this was optional then you wouldn't be able to beat it.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The rowdiest and best athletic program to be a part of.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Texas Tech sets students up for success.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The people at Texas Tech are really supportive and friendly. Every time I'm there it feels like home to me. From the first time I visited I knew it was the right place for me.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Every employee at Texas Tech University s there to help each student achieve their goal. The advisers have really helped me as I went through a stressful semester changing my major. My favorite experience at Tech would be the football games. They are always so exciting and loud and that makes me a proud Red Raider. I would chose Texas Tech all over again because it is not too close or too far. Another reason would be that Lubbock has really grown on me and has been the best new home for the past two years. I couldn't imagine going to school anywhere else but Texas Tech University.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I won't start at Texas Tech University until this fall semester as a transfer student from South Plains College but as of right now I can say that the career center at Texas Tech is amazing! The people there care about the future of the student. They are there to assist and give resources to the future of the Texas Tech Students.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I've never been one to really get involved in a game as a fan but from what I can tell for the most part everyone is a big red raider fan! I love how loyal the fans can be to their team and encourage their team to move forward. This is a great quality to have in any University.

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.
