    One of the most challenging things when attending a new school is finding a great set of hard working friends. If there was one thing that I would say is a priority over everything else is talking with Teaching Assistants to see which clubs fit your goals and then stick to it! It is easy to find friends that are willing to have fun throughout all hours of the day; if you want to be successful then you need to find friends that are going to push you to be successful academically!

    If you have a problem with anything, always call the University at the appropriate number, because they can almost always help and usually give more than you are asking for. (Especially when calling financial aid.)

    Texas Tech University is a very segregated campus on accident. You rarely see races interact with each other. Lubbock is not a very open minded city so some of the locals are quite racist. If you aren't bothered by this then by all means come to Tech, but if you think this might be a problem for you then you might want to rethink coming to Tech.

    Visiting campus is, without exception, the best way to experience Texas Tech (or really any college). Once you experience the beautiful campus and generally pleasant atmosphere, you'll never want to leave! Before you visit, take time to research programs that interest you. Make sure to keep your eyes open for programs you might not have known about within your general area of interest! Texas Tech is home to numerous specialized degree programs such as Petroleum Engineering and Energy Commerce. Also, when you schedule your tour, inquire about meeting with a student ambassador from your prospective department. Some of the colleges within the university maintain a staff of Student Ambassadors who will be happy to share their personal experiences and knowledge with you.
