Why I Chose the College of Human Sciences:
I chose the college of Human Sciences because not only did they offer the major I was interested in, but everyone was beyond welcoming. I didn't have the overwhelming fear of big classes that I felt in other colleges and at other Universities. I felt that my place was in Texas Tech's college of Human Sciences.
What I liked about COHS/TTU:
I really liked the fact that I found my friends in my college. Students and teachers are so welcoming and friendly that it's hard to not get involved or find a group of friends. I found my best friends, boyfriend, and became a part of an awesome organization. After taking a tour of the college as a prospective student, I never thought it would be me who would one day become president of the College of Human Sciences recruitment. The best decision I ever made was attending Texas Tech and the college of Human Sciences.
The COHS/TTU Experience:
My experience at COHS and TTU was beyond wonderful. The admissions office for the university was very helpful, and the counselors in the COHS always provided the right guidance for me in choosing my classes. Even through the rough periods of midterms and exams, the college always found a way to make the hallways peaceful, or provide a refreshing snack for the long study days.
Most memorable experience:
My most memorable experience at Texas Tech was the football season of 2008-2009 when we beat UT. The excitement that built for weeks around the campus was a feeling I will never experience again. From camping out in a tent for a WEEK, to rushing the field after Michael Crabtree's amazing catch was the icing on the cake for my senior year. The college also provided me with memories with job fairs, a great career center, and fun events!
What I miss the most:
The thing I miss the most is living in Lubbock. I miss getting on the bus and riding to class and admiring the beautiful campus. I miss the experience of living on campus for a year, football games, class (yes I even miss class), friends being so close, and being in a city that is FULL of Red Raider pride. I love teaching and I wouldn't trade my job for anything in the world, but there is no place like Lubbock, Texas or TTU. I will always feel like a part of me is still on campus.
Advice I would give to prospective students is to find financial aid. Fill out scholarships, and see ALL the options that are there for you. I would also advise you to attend sporting events, you wouldn't believe how much fun and spirit will fill you and the stadium. Get involved and find friends. Enjoy each day like it's your last. Make your mark, you won't regret it. And finally become the proudest Red raider alumni!
