I am a tech grad, theres a large college crowd obviously which isn't too bad, but the rest of it is nothing to write home about. Pretty conservative area 2 hours from every where and nothing to look at scenery wise there are no trees taller than waist high and it's pretty much level as far as the eye can see. I have lived all over thanks to military life, and Lubbock was in my bottom two moves excitement wise, but it's cheap to live there, and Tech is a great school.

not necessarily because Austin and Dallas have a higher international profile than Lubbock.

What does international profile have to do with exaggeration of a city's vegetation?

Lubbock has a lot of good eating places a Mall,lots of strip malls,parks the University.nearly completed Marsha sharp freeway.lake ransom canyon and buffalo springs lake to the east.It is flat but has trees,playa lakes and lots of room to breathe unless you live in an apt. I would opt for a house in southwest Lubbock if I could.Good Luck.

I'm curious as to why no one ever mentions Lubbock Christian College? Is it that insignificant? Or because it's church affiliated? I only ask because my daughter graduated from LCC with her BA degree.

LCU only has about 3,000 students, so it's hard for it not to be in the shadow of Tech with 30,000 students.

For a place as dull as Lubbock, I actually like the place. It's just different, a different feel, a different vibe. It's a change of pace from the rest of Texas. Because anything's better than Waco.

Like wayland baptist too its Texas Tech that tends to be the main sports news around here even though LCC and Wayland have their following too.Just the other day in the news a soldier got his dipolma from LCC early because he was leaving to go on a tour of duty they don't go unoticed but they are smaller colleges compared to Tech and so they don't seem to get much news coverage.
