Texas Tech University Reviews
Review Texas Tech University
Texas Tech offers a lot of options for tutoring or help with studies! They also offer incredible programs such as the Writing Center and programs that will help you figure out finances. They often keep events going so community is easy to find! Most professors are welcoming and want to see every student succeed. Classes can sometimes be large but most professors encourage a close environment. A couple downfalls would probably be the dinginess of older dorms and not being as personable with professors in larger classes! Also, the campus is not very diverse.
If you're looking for a large university that still feels small and makes you feel at home, you have found the right place! Texas Tech has a great atmosphere for a college experience and even though many people say Lubbock is boring and there is nothing to do there, they are wrong, there is plenty to do on the side while taking a full course load of classes. Tech is a university with one of the most prideful student body, who won't miss screaming the Matador song at all of the football games. WRECK EM' TECH!
I love Texas Tech University. Ever since I was younger, I knew this was the school I would earn my degree from. I am majoring in Landscape Architecture and at first my plan was to transfer over to Architecture after one semester but I absolutely loved the program that I decided to stay and pursue Landscape Architecture. One of the reasons that my career path was influenced was the professors. They are absolutely amazing and I have learned a lot in the two and a half short years i have been there. The campus is pretty big but once you get familiarized with the buildings and the bus routes is pretty easy. Almost everyday day you see clubs, sororities/fraternities, TTU events out by our speech area promoting their clubs and wanting to recruit other people. I would like to see more greenery and I am not just saying that because I am a Landscape Major. Overall I love this university. The academics are great, it has great traditions and who doesn't want to be a red raider!
