Thought I might as well, since two others have posted photos of other campuses.

Totally Texas Tech

This blogger has a site dedicated almost entirely to displaying scenes from one of the most beautiful universities in the United States. (Btw, if you like his work feel free to make a donation.) He also posts photos of nearby construction sites, such as the freeway, luxury hotel, etc.

Great! We might get all the campuses up here. My sister and her husband and kids went to TT. I have a lot of family from A & M and UT also. My neice is going to UT School of Business this fall.

I have fond memories of my school WVU beating Texas Tech in the sweet sixteen a few years ago.

Tech's campus is about the only beautiful thing in Lubbock, but it's gorgeous. I believe it was John Steinbeck who said it's the most beautiful campus in the west until you get to Stanford.

Very nice pics! I graduated from Tech back in the early 90's and it's amazing how much the campus has expanded and changed since then. I'm a big Red Raider football fan, so I'm really excited about the new Jones AT&T stadium expansion. It's nice to see they've begun construction on that.

I believe you're right about John Steinbeck saying that, but you're wrong about being the only beautiful thing in Lubbock. The Tech Terrace, Overton, and Rush neighborhoods are full of beautiful historic homes. Nearly every neighborhood has a large, pretty park with a lake. There is a canyon with a large stream flowing through it and tree-filled parks on the banks. I've been trying to put together a series of photos that show what Lubbock looks like once you get off the highways.

Default Not Steinbeck

It was James Michener who said Tech had "the most beautiful west of the Mississippi until you get to [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_University"]Stanford[/URL]" This was many years ago and the campus has only gotten much more beautiful. Somebody's spitting out the old Aggy and Horn line about Lubbock and probably has never seen most of Lubbock. You know who you are.
