5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school spirit that each student has for the school is just outstanding. Everyone and everything makes it feel like home. Everyone is very welcoming, and all the teachers are super helpful and are there to help students when needed.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Texas Tech! My experience has been great, of course not always perfect but overall enjoyable. I would not have made a different decision because the teachers here care to see me succeed.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel as though the career center and alumni network outside of college will help me tremendously in taking the nest step, whether that be graduate school or the work force.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on my campus, but at night I rather walk in a group. I wish there was more lighting on certain areas of the campus.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: My experience living on campus was great! I loved Talkington hall and the amenities it ad to offer. There was 24 lobby service, dining hall downstairs, and floor machine washers. The residents were friendly and hospitable. It was a great experience!

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is huge on Tech campus. Most people are involved and those who are not are not as included on campus.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The fan support at Texas tech is like no other. The student section at games is full of energy and support for the team they love so dearly. The traditions are strange, such as throwing tortillas, but are full of pride.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Texas Tech and the teachers have been so supportive and encouraging during my journey through college. They have helped me navigate through this challenging time. I appreciate the community and atmosphere Tech has to offer!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The size of the classes are very different from what is normally seen at the community college I attended, as the classes soar with more than 100 students for the common classes such as Math, English, Chemistry and Intro Classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being an international student and having the opportunity to have my degree from an American University is a very prestigious accomplishment and merit when looking for internships or jobs at my country. Through the cutting edge knowledge that I will expose myself at the University I will have a clear advantage that many of my peers that study back home will not. Not only that but the American culture of making business is clearly the upper-hand when compared to the models that are just now trying to catch-up, back at Mexico.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety is regarded with great importance at the University a clear example can be seen through the University with post of SOS scattered all around. The vast security personnel that roams around campus ensuring the students follow the speed limits and regulation within campus. The fact that the only vehicles able to park within the academic side of the University is restricted to only faculty allowing for a more controlled and monitored flow of traffic in and out the University.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The adaptation from having a room for one or at the very least sharing the room with some family member to a total stranger from a different ethnic background is one that requires full trust. The reason being is: one it is most likely that you will end up with a stranger, two the roommates is probably foreign and three he will probably speak a rough form of English. Trust and communication will play a key role for new students to have a soothing way of life while living within the school dorms. They will enable you to be more confident that stuff will not be taken away or that your roommates friends will respect your belongings while you are gone from the room.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a very complicated theme at the University if one is willing to enter such community, playing their social cards wisely is the best recommendation. Its easy for one to set a foot wrong and fail to fit into such fraternities and sororities however, once in the brotherhood and sisterhood from such communities is one that is tied with strong bonds that almost act like those founds at a family unit.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football like many other colleges reigns on top of all other sports however its not a simple system. Here everyone has that sense of unity when the team is able to obtain victory or when they set foot on the field. Its a synergy of uncontrollable but positive energy that fields the stadium and as everyone raises their hands making the raider symbol

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Transition from Highschool to college can be seen as one of the hardest challenges any student can face. However, it is through the staff and people available at this University, the hardships one faces are not experienced alone as there is always one person willing to give you a hand to overcome the problems you are facing.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletic life is a big part of Texas Tech

4 College Junior

Diversity: I feel accepted no matter what I believe.

Health & Safety: I haven't heard of any sexual assault cases within the TTU community. However if there ever was to be a case then I know the entire community will be there to support each other in their time of need.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is security on campus. I did hear there were a lot of car break in's, especially if you park farther out. I did not experience any crime myself but did hear of situations where female students were approached or grabbed.

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.
