This major research university has maintained the sense of a smaller liberal arts college. Students benefit from best-in-class facilities and academics while having one-on-one interactions with faculty. Many faculty members are integrated scholars who promote active learning through research.
Its beautiful Spanish Renaissance-styled campus is home to one of the best public art collections in the country. Set on 1,800+ acres, the campus is home to an undergraduate institution, law school, and medical school.
Texas Tech competes in Division I sports programs, including football and men’s and women’s basketball.
