College Life Rating

There is not much to do in Lubbock, so most students just party outside of their studies. There are many choices in clubs and organizations but the most prominent choice is Greek Life. The majority of students make everyone feel as though you need to be involved in Greek life or you don't belong. I am in the Greek System, but most students in my program are not. I see both sides of this. I feel as if this is a con about attending Texas Tech. Most students feel pressured to become involved in Greek Life,

College Life Rating

The social atmosphere on campus is very relaxed. There are a multitude of food choices on campus and the food is great. Campus safety is a high priority, with many entrances to campus monitored by guard post booths. Lubbock has a variety of restaurants and the club scene is varied. However, due to the size of Lubbock, the clubs scene can get a little monotonous.
