Texas Tech University: A Place Where Law and Medicine Meet

 Texas Tech University

Our visit to  Texas Tech University was very enjoyable!  We witnessed southern hospitality at its finest on the campus with several college specific career services offices and academic advisors that are plugged in to students’ plans and goals. It is easy to see why Texas Tech Red Raider students enjoy rankings, awards, and notables such as the following:

The educational experience in Texas Tech’s Edward E. Whitacre Jr. College of Engineering is one of the nation’s top 80, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2011 College Rankings.

Forbes Magazine named Texas Tech University one of the top 50 colleges in its list of America’s Best College Buys.

Texas Tech earned a top-tier ranking among national universities in the 2011 edition of America’s Best Colleges by U.S. News & World Report.

With 1,839 acres, Texas Tech has the second largest contiguous campus in the United States and is the only school in Texas to house an undergraduate institution, law school, and medical school at the same location.

The Carnegie Foundation classifies Texas Tech as having “high research activity.” Research projects in the areas of epidemiology, pulsed power, grid computing, nanophotonics, and wind energy are among the most prominent at the university.

And finally, who could forget Bob Knight, the second most winning coach in men’s NCAA Div. I basketball history, served as the team’s head coach from 2001 to 2008.

As you can tell Texas Tech has a lot to be proud of! We had an amazing time and hope to make it back for another visit soon.
