Everything about Tech is awesome except the construction going on right now but that's fine it's only improving the campus. Can't wait to see it finished. The weather is perfect. The people and professors are great.

Tech is a beatiful campus. The only thing that needs to be changed is the drainage system for rain, because it floods too much.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Texas Tech. The campus was beautiful and well-kept. The staff and administration were very helpful in helping me get accepted and what to do afterwards. The town of Lubbock feels homey and quaint. I would definitely recommend this college to anyone looking for a great education and a home away from home.
