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

First off, make sure that the college has your degree plan. Its important before you make your choice that they even offer your major .But most importantly, visit the college before you make your final decision. You may grow up your whole life wanting to attend a certain university but find that something just does not feel right when you visit the campus. When you find the university for you, you will know it. It will just feel right.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There are some pretty closed minded people here but I'm sure you can find those anywhere.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person that wants quality education while enjoying a college-town that isn't too big, but not too small either

Tech is known for our vulgar fight song. Also our crazy fans when we rush the field after an upset. Oh and how could I forget, "raider rash". How embarassing.

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

To find the right college I would definitely talk to someone who goes there and has gone there for more than a year or two and do your research thouroughly. Visit the campus and ask questions, talk to your counselors in highschool about it too if you can't make the trip. Don't just go with the first one that says yes but don't burn yourself out trying to get to your first pick either. To make the most of your college experience have fun but learn to control yourself it takes time but it is possible to have a social life and still make good grades you don't have to sacrifice one for the other by any means. Get involved as much as you can if you don't want to fall in the cracks of drinking and risky activities, trust me there is plenty of stuff to do you just have to ask the right people. Also don't get too stressed when things aren't going the way you want them to, if you're stressed about a class just regroup and figure out what it is you need to do and fix it.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

That the teachers say they are willing to help but usually don't. Their office hours don't accomodate everybody. Also most of the math teachers are foreign so it's VERY difficult to understand them and next to impossible to make a descent grade. Some teachers don't know what they're talking about half the time they get confused which then confuses the class. Another thing is the sorority/fraternity organizations they just frustrate me because they think they're better than everone and expect others who aren't in one to bow down to them.

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

First research the school you wish to attend . Do the research by reading literature of the school and past alumni of the school. Make sure that this is the school and the degree plan that you feel strongly about.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The distance from my home town and the size of the campus. At times it takes a long time to reach each of my classes.

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

Make sure you visit the college before you go. The feeling you get when you walk around campus and see the dorms will be your initial sign as to whether or not you like the college. Make sure that what ever you are interested in is a big part of the university. Check and make sure all your applications are right and even if you have to some schools it is better to apply with an undeclared major. Try and get involved as much as possible and meet people wherever you can.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

That our football team is undefeated so far and I am an athletic trainer for the team.

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

Prepareation. Prepare, prepare, prepare early. Start looking for financial aid while early n high school and try to decide early on what you are looking for from a university and career goals so you can start taking classes in high school that reflect these goals. Also try to do more curricular acitvities while in high school that could help you in college. Talk to your counselors and get on a first name basis. Find out what the local and state scholarships are in your area and region. Lastly; be smart , don't let peer pressure push you from your goals. Have fun and enjoy the college experience. It's life changing!

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

I would advise parents to set back and give more freedom to their children. Too often parents make the choice of what college their children should attend which results in the misery of the child.

What's unique about your campus?

I would consider the beauty of the campus the best thing about Texas Tech. Tech is located in a town that is extremely isolated and does not have much natural beauty, and Texas Tech makes the town beautiful.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The Health Science Center is know for producing great research and many students follow this path. Texas Tech is also know for football. They have a great team and this pulls many students together each weekend for this activity. The school is also known for it's Engineering department.

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

Parents and students should look at all of their options before choosing the college they will attend. They should make a list of what they are looking for and then compare it to what they find at each college they visit. I fell they should complete this process as a team. It will bring them closer together in the amount of time they have left together. Once a college is chosen then they should put their heart and soul in the whole experience. The student should get involved in some activities in order to meet new people. They should attend football or basketball games so they can experience the rivalry of the school and take ownership in their school. Students should become involved in study groups and religious activities . Most of all students should find a major and commit to making the grades needed to get their degree.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing so far is the price of school in general. It is so expensive to attend college that it makes it difficult for me.

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

kathleen.rolf@ttu.edu (512) 964-5626 If you, as an incoming college student, know which field you want to specialize in, look for a school that has a strong program in that field. But, if you are like most of us, and you have no idea what you want to do for the rest of your life, look for a school with a great balance of well-designed programs, plenty of extra-curricular activities, and a diverse student population. I believe that these things will help you the most in life, for many of life's lessons cannot be taught from a textbook, but are learned through human interaction and experience. Advisors of student organizations can be great mentors, and are always willing to answer questions. Colleagues will become best friends, and improving personal relations skills will help immensely in future careers. Involvement on campus will provide great stress relief for the tough times, and will serve as a support system, while also instilling a great sense of pride for one's school. Study abroad. Attend sporting events. Discover yourself. With a balance of academics, extra-curriculars, and diversity, college becomes the breeding ground for no less than success!

What's unique about your campus?

The best things about my school are the opportunities we have to get involved, meet new people, build lasting relationships, and really grow into the people we want to be. Anything we want to achieve after college becomes possible, and meeting as many people as we do at Texas Tech opens many doors for the future.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing at Texas Tech that I have encountered are the teachers that are difficult to understand. By difficult to understand, I am referring to their thick accents and not-so-fluent English. Although these teachers are rare, we all have at least one or two of them in our time here. It is a little frustrating to undergo, but it makes us more tolerant to many different people, which will help us greatly in our careers. This is especially important now, with the United States being the "melting pot."

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

I would Tell them to pick the place that they feel they would want to live four years in. picking colleges is a hard and scary time for most students but if you go to the university ahead of time to find out what its like it will make this process a lot easyer. everyone has a diffrent type of style they are looking for, find a place that is not only the style you like but also a place were your parents feel confortable dropping you off at and leaving you each year. Also look for a place were the people are kind an can fit your personality. The advice I would give about making the most of their college experience would be to have fun and stay organized college is a huge change from high school and you dont want to find that out the hard way. Stay organized and you will go fair.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most Frustrating thing about Texas Tech is it ability to provide help in school for thouse who need it.
