Texas Tech University Reviews - Bachelor's in Psychology
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 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.
At Texas Tech University, most of the faculty want the students to succeed. As a psychology major who wanted to go to graduate school to pursue further study, I needed research experience. The only reason I knew this was because several professors were very vocal about what students should be doing to pursue our goals. Professors were very helpful; two of them reached out to me to offer me places in their research teams. Even if professors do not to go to that extent for all of their students, they are all very available via email or office hours. Not only are the professors at Texas Tech helpful and available; they are diverse. The variety of teaching styles really familiarized me to all of the different approaches of learning, and helped me get a better grasp on the material. In the English department, some of the classes are discussion-based; in others, the professor and the students read the material together in class; and in others, there are lectures every class. The psychology department is the same way. Students are expected to adjust to every professor's particular style; but if they need help, that professor is easily available. There are so many ways to get involved at Texas Tech. There are over seven hundred student organizations the last time I checked. There are dozens of research teams to join. In the English department, students can get published in Texas Tech's annual literary journal. No matter what someone's hobbies, culture, or goals are, there are others like them at Texas Tech who are willing to accept them with open arms. The feeling of cohesion and unity at football games is something I have never felt before. Students at Tech are overwhelmingly friendly, and one can always find a community there. Texas Tech University is an excellent school and I had a wonderful four years there. I feel prepared for graduate school, which will begin Fall 2017 for me, because of my experience at Texas Tech. I would recommend it to anyone!
I loved that the town itself was not too big and not hard to learn (I was not originally from Lubbock). The campus is a good size and not too big. It is nice that once you start taking the classes more concentrated in your major, the classes are basically all in the same location. The gym is very nice and they offer a lot of classes on the side. One thing I really liked was you could attend all sports events by just swiping your school id card. No need to buy tickets or a "sports package" on top of paying tuition. It's already included. The bus system they have to get students to opposite sides of the campus is nice but you do have to make sure you get there on time because the bus will leave (I am speaking from personal experience here)! Overall I really loved my time at Tech and would recommend going there to anyone.
Loved Texas Tech! Set me up for my future and was a lot of fun along the way. The psychology program afforded me several opportunities to get involved in research. This was crucial for my admittance into graduate school. The professors are fantastic and cared deeply about my growth.
Texas Tech is a great place for an undergrad degree in Psychology, however I am having to attend another university to get my Masters in Counseling degree. Texas Tech is a very diverse university, on a wonderful campus in Lubbock Texas. It may be far away from most things, but you will never be lacking in activities to be involved in. Tech is also well known for its engineering degrees, business and law school.
