A wide variety of students can be found at Texas Tech. Currently the Hispanic enrollment at Texas Tech is #1 at 43%. Caucasian/white is at 40% being second.
There is nothing 3rd rate about this school except where it is located. Lubbock, TX isn't the greatest place if your moving say from any Liberal based larger city. Lubbock, TX is highly conservative and has more churches and banks per population than Vatican City ( im just saying that but i think its 2nd -or in the top 5- in the country ). The county in which Lubbock resides is a dry county, so no liquor sales inside the city limits. This however may change in spring of 2009, being petitioned by the majority of the population. Enough signatures were obtained to warrant a vote.
Enrollment at Texas Tech is growing steadily. Within the passed 8 years it has broken its highest enrollment records twice. However, state funding for Texas Tech is lower than most other states. This is not a Texas Tech factor, but rather a State of Texas factor being that all state funded schools in Texas do no receive adequate funding compared to many other States in the USA.
Texas Tech University is huge in physical size, being second in the nation.
You can never find a parking spot at Texas Tech University.
