Texas Tech University, as I see it:

Texas Tech among pretty campuses: www.MSNBC.MSN.com/id/20200955 Admire Texas Tech’s six photos & submit your own Texas Tech photos! Your photos might get added to the “pretty campuses” line up.  Among top 10% of US colleges & universities via http://www.PhiBetaKappa.org

34,000+ students  ++  10 colleges  ++  150 academic programs  ++  162 master’s & doctoral-degree programs  ++  academically rigorous service-learning opportunities  ++  only place in Texas with a law school, graduate school & health sciences center in the same location as the main undergraduate campus — easing students’ transition to professional studies.

Founded in 1923, Texas Tech University carries the distinction of being the largest comprehensive institution of higher education in the western two-thirds of the state of Texas and serves a region that is larger than 46 of the nation’s 50 states. The Texas Tech System oversees the only single campus in the state that is home to a major university, law school and medical school. Students benefit from this breadth by pursuing degree programs that combine the assets of these outstanding institutions. Students can earn joint degrees in medicine and business, law and public administration, civil engineering and architecture, and a variety of other programs made possible by the combination of colleges and schools on the campus.

Texas Tech University prides itself on being a major comprehensive research university that retains the sense of a smaller liberal arts institution. Although enrollment approaches 30,000, Texas Tech students boast of one-on-one interactions with top faculty and an environment that emphasizes student accomplishment.

Students are actively advised & helped to apply for & receive national & international scholarships such as the Rhodes, Gates Cambridge, Marshall, Truman, Udall & Goldwater scholarships.

The 200-year-old Phi Beta Kappa Society’s (www.PBK.org) granting TTU the right to shelter a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa  (www.depts.TTU.edu/PhiBetaKappa) is additional validation of TTU’s academic strengths (only about 10 percent of US institutions of higher learning have Phi Beta Kappa chapters; only three public higher education institutions in Texas have Phi Beta Kappa chapters).
