Texas Tech University Reviews
As a current freshman I have had a great experience at Texas Tech University! The Professors are available to help you with any of your concerns or questions. Advisors are kind and provide quality assistance. The students are friendly and are willing to help you in times of confusion or stress. The culture and athletic scene on campus is very exciting, which has made me feel more connected to the university. Texas Texas University displays a beautiful campus with many things that appeal to the students and staff, as well as visitors! Also, employment on campus runs smooth, staff members are helpful and work around student schedules !
Texas Tech is a great, secure, and friendly place to attend college. The teachers have a passion to witnessing their students succeed. Also, the resources are excellent around the campus. For example, if i need help writing a paper, the University Writing Center is there to assist me and the faculty dedicate their time to assist me in writing a great paper for class. I do not want to see nothing change, I have taken advantage of my resources, my professors are excellent teachers and I am so excited to be a part of their class this semester!
Texas Tech is a great school in many ways, but also has a few things that might not be for some people. First, Texas Tech is a very large campus, this means lots of auditorium style classes, less one on one teaching. Your professor may have 100s of students in just one class. On another hand, if you love having lots of options for student groups or events this is a great thing. Second, this is a university so there's a wide variety of degree options, and they require you to meet with an academic advisor before making your schedule. This is a good thing, because you'll always know what track your on, whether it's a good track or a bad one!
