Texas Tech University

Why Texas Tech ?

From here, it's possible.

Texas Tech University prides itself on being a major comprehensive research university that retains the sense of a smaller liberal arts institution. Although enrollment is over 30,000, Texas Tech students boast of one-on-one interaction with top faculty and an environment that stresses student accomplishment above all else. We're large enough to provide the best in facilities and academics, but small enough to focus on YOU. We are committed to enhancing the cultural and economic development of the state, nation, and world. Read our full mission statement.

Texas Tech students come from every county in Texas, all 50 states and more than 90 foreign countries. Tech offers 150 undergraduate degree programs through 11 academic colleges, a graduate school and a school of law. We offer more than 100 master's degree programs and over 50 doctoral degree programs. Learn more Texas Tech facts.

Founded in 1923, Texas Tech is located on the South Plains of West Texas and carries the distinction of being the largest comprehensive higher education institution in the western two-thirds of the state of Texas. Spanish Renaissance-inspired architecture, wide open spaces and endless blue sky. The beauty of West Texas has to be seen to be believed. Our graduates have governed three states, flown space missions, won Olympic Gold Medals, served as ambassadors to foreign countries, acted on Broadway stages, won Pulitzer Prizes, been educators at prestigious universities and even performed heart surgery on prominent late night television hosts (hope you're feeling better, Dave). Go.
From the spectacular Carol of Lights to dressing Will Rogers and Soapsuds in red on gameday, we are deeply rooted in tradition. Go. Old friend or new visitor, you'll be impressed with the sights and sounds of Texas Tech. Go.
