WHAT I LIKED

The professors are from all around the globe. It is interesting learning about their culture and learning their styles of teaching. Overall, the education experience is good and I recommend this school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

This school has a ridiculous amount of sexual assaults reported monthly and even weekly. I never leave my dorm past 9 PM. It feels unsafe at night.

WHAT I LIKED

Texas Tech University is a beautiful campus that offers a variety of academics and individuals that broadened my horizons. Though the school is religious and conservative, no matter how you identify, you can find a group of people well suited for you.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

As I mentioned before, it is primarily white, conservative, and Christian. Though that appeals to some people, it was not my favorite thing about the school. Plus, it does not always feel like the safest campus, especially for women.
