Teachers are all different, and you will undoubtedly run into some who don't fit your learning style. The rift can be found in anything—the way they present notes, the amount of in-class work they provide versus out-of-class work, or just the way they speak or wear their hair. What's important to figure out from the start is how that teacher is going to conduct class and how to mold yourself to it. These teachers are teaching 200 students at one time sometimes, and it is impossible for them to change to fit each student. Success will be found in your own flexibility.
Texas Tech is a resource. Lubbock is small, but it is packed full of experts in every department of Texas Tech. As you get deeper into any major, the teachers get better. Also, by junior year (well, OK, maybe senior year), most students start to get their partying under control and become better able to take on the heavier course loads. Tech understands progression. Your freshman year will be packed with classes that focus more on attendance and memorization than retaining concepts. Tech knows that many students won't become atmospheric scientists, but they still want you to be exposed to it. As long as you go to class and take notes, you'll be fine cramming the night before the exam, and it's kind of fun! If you don't attend class, though, you'll spend the majority of your cram sessions collecting other people's notes—and no one likes studying with note-moochers.
