Texas Tech University Review

Lubbock is a great place to go to school! There's enough to do that we are never bored, but not so many distractions that it's hard to concentrate on studying.

West Texas is a very friendly area and TTU is no different. I have made friends easily and really enjoy campus life.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I was pushed to be more involved and not so shy. You and other freshman are all in similar boats, so they most likely feel as nervous as you do. Don't be afraid to go out and join as many organizations or go places you wouldn't usually, because you can always figuratively go back, and edit before you click save.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love everything about Texas Tech and cannot wait to spend my undergraduate years at Texas Tech. Techs campus is the second largest right behind the air force academy, so the school is a large school but coming from a large high school I am not too worried about that factor. When I tell people that I will be attending Texas Tech in the fall I hear "Guns Up" or "Wreck 'em" these responses just increase my excitement for college.

Describe the students at your school.

Although I have not actually attended a class at Texas Tech yet I just got home from orientation and the upper class-men that were there were the sweetest, friendlist and most defiantley the most helpful students I have ever met!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Texas Tech University is a wonderful university filled with various career paths, but that also demands students who are independant and who are strong willed.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and provide myself with some advice about Texas Tech University, it would be to be patient and enjoy my undergraduate career. I sped to quickly through my undergrad that I felt stressed and pressured many semsters. It also led me to become less active in social events. I spent countless hours studying when I could have taken a breath and admire my surroundings. I got so far I didn't even realize the end was approaching rapidly.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person should not attend Texas Tech Univeristy if they are doubtful in the university. Doubt can hinder any student who is not well enough prepared to attend TTU. Texas Tech University is a university for students who are independt and outgoing. If one does not classify under these categories, they will have a challenging time adjusting to the change and making friends. In order to scucced at TTU a student must believe in themselves before anyone else.
