A second-rate public university located in Lubbock, Tx. Those who attend the school were denied admission to prestigious universities of Texas (Texas A&M and University of Texas) and were forced to attend the school due to: scholastic inability, a desire to attend a large Texas school, and a general lack of options. Students and Alumni are given little respect by Texas universities because of classless nature and ineptitude. The nick-name "Tortilla Tech" has been given to the school so as not to defame the great state of Texas by association.
