Overall

Coming into Lubbock for the first time was a very disappointing time. The campus is very beautiful, but the area surrounding it is completely different. The housing is more expensive than what it is worth (on and off campus). The entire city is based around the college, which is a pro and a con. The housing areas surrounding the school are mostly very old and trashy. Lubbock was named, by Forbes, one of the top ten most dangerous cites in America a few years back. The best thing about Texas Tech is the feeling of belonging to something important. Whatever you decide to get involved with becomes your family, and it is a fantastic experience that you will cherish. Lubbock is not for everyone, it is not a place you would want to live in after graduation, but it is a city that is involved and for the students.

Academics

There a few excellent teachers, but many professors do not care about their job. This is the same it seems from the majority of school that I have read and heard about. The class sizes are usually very large depending on the subject. I am in the school of Architecture and there are various sizes to classes. The range is from around 20 to hundreds of students. The workload is ridiculous, but it is expected from attending college. The college of architecture is an unforgiving school one in the professional program. The hard work. no sleep and learning things on your own is worth it once you push yourself through.

College Life

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,

Overall

Texas Tech is a great school; very diverse and friendly. The faculty is very dedicated toward helping students and academic advisors are excellent about helping you stay on track with your degree plan and graduation.

Academics

Most classes on Tech campus are of moderate size, 30-50 people. These class sizes allow a more one-on-one relationship with professors, all of which are very dedicated to helping students succeed. The work load is moderate for an undergraduate student but with time management skills is very manageable.

College Life

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.

Overall

I am a Junior at Rouse High School at this time. Actually I would be one of those prospective students. I recently just toured the school on the Texas Tech Express and had an amazing time. I was very impressed with the school facilities offered on campus to students.

Academics

Since I am a prospective student I can not answer this question. However as a Junior in High School my focus at this time are my classes. I take almost all AP courses and am involved in Band and Colorguard as well. I also am involved in my local Teen Court which is a program in which I get to be involved in the law process during actual trials.

College Life

Again... as a prospective student I do not know the answer to this question either. However while I was there for my 2 day visit I was impressed with the amount of activities offered there on campus. There seems to be a lot of focus on the students and keeping busy with many organizations and clubs offered. There is an amazing rec center as well. I look forward to going to college at Texas Tech. It is definitely one of the colleges I am considering.
