Why Tech?

Your talent will be recognized and nurtured, like Wyman Meinzer BS/Wildlife Management, 1974, who credits his Texas Tech professors with helping him set goals and achieve his dream. Wyman's career as a wildlife photographer includes photos published in Time, Newsweek, Field and Stream and National Geographic. He also teaches photography at Texas Tech, including a field course in Junction, Texas.

"I encourage students looking for an open-minded, energetic approach to education to give Texas Tech a chance."
