am a senior mechanical engineering major form San Antonio.
I have loved my experience here at Texas Tech.
The campus is incredible beautiful. Lubbock does take a
little getting use to, but you find you like it
more and more each year you come back. The
Lubbock community is great. Big time bible belt.
There are plenty of churches to get involved with.
Lubbock's remote location means that the students stay in town
for the weekends. Greek life is really big, but
not necessary to have a good time. Frat boys
here will wear you out but its not overwhelming.
I suggest getting to know people in your major.
It will make your social life better as well as
help tremendously academically, especially if your in a hard college
like engineering. Sports here are great. There is
nothing like game day in raiderland. We are the
only school in the nation that has a school sponsored
student tailgate party. Raidergate always brings in some good
bands and is worth getting up at 8 am on
monday morning to get your truck pass. The girls
are ridiculously gorgeous. Though they are few and far
between in the engineering department. Park only in the
parking lot that your parking sticker allows you to park
in. You will get a ticket otherwise. Taco
villiage is the best hole in the wall mexican restaurant
that serves free beer on friday and saturday nights.
Chili cook off in the fall is definitely worth the
money. I could go on and on. Bottom
line: go to ut if you need to be in
a big city downtown environment with a bunch of weird
liberals; go to tamu if you want to be one
of the herd; go to Tech if you want to
get a great education and have a great time doing
