My campus is the second-largest in the country. While being completely huge, it also boasts a lot of events and organizations available to students, so included in our tuition is loads of opportunities to not only meet new people, but explore new interests.

Kaylee

Initially, I usually brag to my friends that are still in highschool or in my hometown about how much I love the teachers and the classes. In my school very few teachers were actually intersting with their subjects. Also, the principal would sometimes be on power trips so highschool was frustrating. Here, the teachers always have interesting things to say in class and have a refreshing joy in their subject, although some are still monotone. I also enjoy that most students have an interest in the classes and the discussions between everyone always stimulates the brain and is usually exciting.

Dayna

What I like most about Texas Tech University, being in a small town, is that everyone begins to know everyone after a while so it is easier to become friends with more students, or students going to other colleges around the city. It creates a healthy diversity and overall acceptance of common differences.

Katherine

I really love that the people are all so accepting and the fact that every one gets along no matter what. You could be white, black, purple, green, buddhist, catholic, indian and everyone would be cool with it and just say hey I don't care but let us all get together and have a great time. It's the most fun and it feels like such a big family when your own family isn't there.
