What Students Are Saying

3.86 Average Rating
I would say, come here ready to study. It's not as easy as everyone says Tech is. Also, be open-minded. Be ready to meet different cultures, get involved in Greek life, and all of the organizations on campus.

Don't procrastinate, and Don't choose 8am classes
Hannah from Wolfforth, TX
with all the new freedom that comes with going away to college, you'll probably be tempted to test your limits. i think you have to learn what these limits are on your own, but don't push them too far. as cliché as it sounds, there is a lot of responsibility you need to take on, and if you don't own up to it, it will come back to bite you.
Elizabeth from San Antonio, TX
Being away from home and going to school can be very overwhelming. Sometimes you can get caught up with just having fun and not having parents around that you forget that you are there for school. Don't feel like your alone if you start falling behind in grades. This isn't high school or community college, so yes, its meant to be challenging. I didn't do well my first semester and neither did a lot of my friends. So second semester we were all put in a strategies for learning class called XL. Honestly, best class I've ever taken. You don't have to be failing to take this class, and everyone should take it as a freshman. This class just taught me so much about myself and how to succeed not only in college but in life! This class is small so it was easy to make friends in. We played games and did fun activities, like a scavenger hunt across the whole campus! This class isn't for a grade, it's solely to help you learn about yourself and how you learn best. It was nice having one class that i didn't have to worry about so much and that was actually fun, and i advise anyone and everyone to take it! Just don't forget to get involved, go to class, and just have fun!

If you are a prospective student, I suggest you at least have a 2.75 gpa in high school, be involved in many extracurricular activities and apply early.
Kamaron from Lewisville, TX
The best advice I can offer is to make a schedule and stick to it! Schedule when you're going to do what part of your paper and I would suggest to finish it by Thursday--this way if you're tempted to go out with friends for the weekend, you can!! It takes a little getting used to, but scheduling has been a real life-saver for me!

1. GET INVOLVED! There is no better way to meet new people than to join organizations and make friends with those who have similar interests as you. Doing things together brings you together as a family and students do everything together, from taking the same classes and studying together to attending football games and rushing the field. 2. Go to class. Most professors highlight key concepts that will be a continual theme or will be on the exams. But you won't know if you don't go. Taking notes from your friends or other students may be problematic because everyone takes notes differently and your friend or fellow student might not take the same concept out of the lecture as you. Everyone also learns differently but no matter if you read the assigned readings and online PowerPoint's, going to class will drill into you what you are expected to know. 3. Have fun. College is a good experience and there are many opportunities to take advantage of. However, be smart, put your education first, and be safe about how you divert yourself.
Marie from El Paso, TX
Bring rain boots! When it rains it usually floods and if you think the guy in the F-150 is going to have no pleasure whatsoever in splashing you, you are in for a rude awakening!
Kellie from Little Elm, TX
Don't worry if your coming alone. You will meet so many friends from all over that are wanting the same experience. Get Ur Guns UP!
Olivia from San Marcos, TX
You should definitely get caught up in all the hype during football season. Classes are more fun when you have something to look forward to at the end of the week.
