"Texas Tech is an amazing institution. It has word renowned faculty teaching some of the brightest students in the nation. It has generous scholarships, quality coursework and a tight-knit Red Raider community. Between the Honors College, Rawls College of Business and the Whitacre College of Engineering, Texas Tech offers some of the best programs taught by some of the most caring faculty. Guns up!"

"I've never left a review before, but this school has left such a bad impression on me just through the application process. If your admissions counselors and team don't have it together, I can only assume the rest of the school is a mess. Everything has been messed up from the get-go with my application for admission. Information entered incorrectly such as attending on-campus rather than being a distance student, among others. Then, I had to resend all of my transcripts twice (and pay twice), only for them to still claim they haven't received them. Upon being provided emails from the transcript companies that the PDF they sent had been received and downloaded, I was told, rudely, that "just because you got an email doesn't mean they received it." The girl who was my admissions counselor was so incredibly rude, she made me feel like I was bothering her to do her job. When checking in on how the process was going and if there was anything more I could do on my end, she once responding by starting out the email, "I don't know what to tell you, but we don't have them." In another email she said, "I guess I will need to go look for them because they are not here." Just unbelievably unprofessional. Even in the beginning, the counselor was sloppy and provided incorrect information that I had to constantly seek clarification for. Evening being processed and admitted to the school, the admissions process made it clear I want to stay far, far, far away from this place."

"I think that the interdisciplinary studies degree plan from Texas Tech University was an amazing degree plan. I started as a biology major with a chemistry minor and switched my junior year to accommodate for pre-requisites that I may need for graduate programs that I may be interested. I love this degree plan so much because it allowed me to really hone in on learning how to be interdisciplinary. It forced me to think outside the box and to understand how to incorporate one field of study in to another. I feel that it truly prepared me for graduate school because it forced a lot more out of the box and conceptual thinking compared to the other programs that I was exposed to while attending Texas Tech during my undergrad career."

"You will be left to the buzzards if you are not from the suburbs of Dallas, Austin, or Houston. Academically they pick the few rippest fruits and leave the rest to wrought. There grad students/TA's here are overworked and barley see the light of day. While the social life here is out of this world AWESOME, the students, faculty, and staff can't relate to how hard it is to find a burger flipping job, let alone a "dream job", they assume you are either simply lazy or have a spotty background; overall they are completley oblivious and shetlered from harsher realities of life."

"Texas Tech University has been an absolute dream for me. The professors truly care about their students and advisors go out of their way to calm your nerves when your schedule isn't adding up. Lubbock is an extremely well built college town. The residents of Lubbock are so concerned with creating job opportunities and helping students succeed in life. I cannot say enough positive things about TTU, I never want to leave!"

"Felt like I didn't really learn anything useful, basically paid a bunch of money to do a bunch of busy work to get a degree that no one really cares about. I have a job now but it was hard finding one and I know a lot of people who had a really hard time finding one and a lot that are still looking over a year later. Tech used to be fun too but they made a bunch of lame ifc rules and stuff and tailgate rules that make it the lamest school around... its know for all the drinking not because people are doing so much fun stuff that involves drinking that they always are but because there is nothing else to do and everyone is so depressed thats just what they all do. Tech is a cheaper waste-of-money-school than most and has low admission expectations so the crowd is generally less affluent and its noticable. the classes are so worthless to go to, for 80of them you could knock them out in a week or two online easily. Everyone who goes there regrets going but they are too afraid to admit it hahaha like 25of my professors seemed like they even cared about what they taught I guess its hard to get interesting people out into the middle of nowhere to teach"

"This college is great. Texas Tech provides great opportunities in academics as well as in community outreach. The professors will vary, admittedly, and I highly suggest researching professors before you sign up to take any courses. Being well informed is important in any college situation. Financial aid can be a pain, and none of the offices really go out of their way to help you figure out your financials outside of making sure you pay your tuition, but again being informed and on top of things will ensure you have no problems. I love this University, and while every institution has its advantages and disadvantages I believe Texas Tech is a great choice. Good luck in your future studies!"

"I would not recommend this program. The main thing that I learned through my time here is that there are a lot of programs that schools offer that aren't necessary. In my field I truly feel that my degree is a disadvantage, and has prevented me from getting jobs. Texas Tech has a large presence in a small region. I live outside that region and everyone that I have ever interviewed with thought that Texas Tech was a 2 year technical school. This was a tremendous waste of time and money and I would have been much better off and happier if I hadn't got this degree."

"Pros and cons : The campus culture is great. I really enjoyed my time there. The instructors were always available if I needed anything. A con is I signed up to go study abroad which has to be done within a few months in advance and unfortunately my mother passed away and was not in the mood to go. I contacted those in charge of study abroad and explained the situation and I was told that I was still going to get charged the full amount regardless of if I went or not and then I asked if I could post pone the trip for the following semester and they said no and if I was really interested in going the following semester I would just have to pay all over again. This was really disappointing as it was an unforeseen event and I really think that its just really not worth it to study abroad with these rules. I probably could have taken a trip for about a month to the country of my choice for a lesser price than what Texas tech ended up putting me in a bind in."

"I really enjoyed my time at Texas Tech. I think my one regret is not coming here straight out of high school because I wish I was more involved with student programs. All my professors have been amazing, and I've been more than comfortable with all of them to ask for help! All the professors are really passionate about the subjects they teach."
