I have been living here for about half of my life, and I have been given many opportunities living here. Academics I have been challenged and given the opportunity of take IB courses. I have been involved and feel welcomed in the community. I have been exposed to new adventures like watching live musicals at the local amphitheater or going to see artwork in all sorts of different kinds of media at the art trail. Overall my experience in Lubbock has been positive and

Lubbock is a great place for any child to go to school, we have some fast growing school districts! The cost of living is great, there are awesome prices on both houses and apartments. There are tons of job opportunities. Lubbock is always busy building new restaurants, houses, and grocery stores. It's one of the best places in Texas to raise children! One of the best things is the fact that Lubbock has no traffic at all, the loop can get any person where they need to be in 10 minutes. It's also very safe, and very diverse. I myself have met so many different people. Overall it is just a great city to live in!
Lubbock is a great city. It feels like a large, small town. The people are some of the friendliest you will meet. There are a wide variety of things to do, including family entertainment, college nightlife, art galleries, farmer's markets, and Texas Tech athletic events. And you won't find more spectacular sunsets anywhere outside of West Texas.
