Texas Tech University Reviews

I am an incoming Freshman and have been researching and visiting Texas Tech for the last year. Some of my high school classmate feel the Lubbock is to far removed, they don't want that middle of nowhere feeling. I beg to differ. I loved Lubbock! We checked out everything; malls, theaters restaurants ect and Lubbock has everything a college town should. The campus was beautiful with a vibrant campus life. As a student looking at a pre med track, I was attracted to Texas Tech due to their medical school. Especially if you are a Texas student, you need to take a look at Texas Tech, it may not be what you're expecting.

Texas Tech University is a fantastic place to go to school. The school is vibrant, the students are largely enthusiastic, both the locals and more experienced students alike are welcoming, and most importantly, it isn't the most expensive option. With a police response time beneath a minute thanks to their blue light system set up all around campus, the massive number of resources available to the average student (including a free use 3D printer in the library!), and food that's relatively cheap with a massive student discount available, living and schooling at Texas Tech is a phenomenal experience that I would recommend to anyone looking to go to school in Texas.

So long as you don't mind the 8 hour trip to get to anywhere noteworthy, that is!
Texas Tech offers you so many activities inside and outside.. Its a best university to go to. The people are very friendly. Even though the city is small, texas tech creates so many programs so that we don't feel like we have nothing to do here. Professors are also very good. They provide you bus services. You will have walk a lot here but hey thats a good thing right?? cause you will get enough exercise! they even provided me ride when the time for bus service was over and i got home safely and didnot had to worry about walking. They have so much to offer and I think TTU is so expensive than other university. and whatever they charge you, they will provide you the service worth it.
