Very good university for international students
The problem is the administrationDec 17 2014Kinesiology
The problem is the administration. They seems to have no sense of accountability. When they are in the wrong no one knows who is in charge and can solve the problem. There is a student resolution center, but often the folks in there can not figure out who is supposed to be in charge or responsible for a given issue. It is just a big bureaucratic mess run by people who seem to have been hired because they know someone who is already employed there.
The building is run downFeb 25 2011Geography and Geosciences
The building is run down. Offices are small and dark; most have no windows.
Committee members are difficult to actually get meaningful meetings with i.e. rather than actuallygetting critique on something you get a vague "looks great, see you later bye"

Except for the faculty involved with petroleum, there is no interest or support for students who do not go into academia. If you don't follow in their footsteps, they have no interest in helping you. There is a definite attitude that if you aren't going into academia, you are selling out.Don't go to TTU if you want a real job.

I just completed my undergrad at Tech andSep 09 2010Psychology
I just completed my undergrad at Tech and am now in a grad program here! I love tech and have received an awesome education! Most people assume Tech kids didn't get into UT or A&M which is totally false. I find the vast majority of students here did get into both schools and CHOSE to attend Tech. A&M is like a conservative cult, UT is EXTREMELY liberal, and most people choose Tech because it's a pretty good medium for Texas schools. Lubbock is growing like crazy! A lot of students who have graduated don't even recogonize it year to year with all of the expansion going on. Lubbock is a diamond in the rough! It's an awesome city with soooooooooooo many fun things to do!!! Tech also has a million organizations to get involved in! I have loved my time here at Tech and know I made the right choice in coming here! Go Red Raiders and Wreck Em' Tech! :)
I am in the SASW department at TechApr 08 2010Social Work
I am in the SASW department at Tech for Social Work, I got my undergrad degree at FSU in Tallahassee, and decided to come to Tech over a few other schools because it has everything I want in terms of academics and campus life. Another big plus for me is the weather, I was sick of hot humid florida, and I'm from the north (Illinois) and Lubbock is perfect, you get a full four seasons and you are never too uncomfortable.

I love Tech, I have had many opportunities to work on projects with other departments and students, and I get lots of interaction in the community. The only downside is it is kind of far from the next biggest city, 4 hours or so from Dallas, but its near Amarillo and also New Mexico, and there is plenty to do in town. Come here if you are serious about having a good time and learning a lot. The school offers EVERYTHING you could want, good sports, good local food, and a real college town atmosphere.

The Grad schools atFeb 14 2010Finance
The Grad schools at Texas Tech are quickly becoming top notch in the nation. I know the finance program I got in to was extremely competitive and has done wonders for me thus far.

A great time was had at TTU, it was a gateway to better things! I had great times at TTU and Lubbock!
I don't have muchDec 15 2007Geography and Geosciences
I don't have much to say, but on campus bus system is pretty nice. Interlibrary loan works quickly. I do wish that they would have better control on game days!

I love the law school and have had a great experience all around!
The school has notchedAug 30 2002Other
The school has notched up the program considerably since I was there. I got a very good education there, but students now in the pipeline are excellent.
