Tech is a melting pot of guys and girls from big cities and small towns in Texas. The appearance, personality, and interests of Tech students vary widely, but being personable is something each group has in common. It will be easy to find a great group of friends in Lubbock, no matter who you are before you become a Red Raider. On a Tech visit, it is almost impossible to walk around town or campus without bumping into an attractive and friendly girl. The problem is that many Tech girls tend to be overly friendly with the opposite sex, branding Tech’s female population as somewhat less than classy or sophisticated. A good percentage of the girls at Tech are bleach-blonde and tan, even in the winter, and wear little outfits that get even smaller when they go to fraternity parties.
Girls at Texas Tech are given a lot of credit for their looks, but the guys are the real gems. Unlike the female population of Tech that is relatively uniform in appearance, the male population mixes it up, ranging from hardcore cowboys who have never ridden a horse to the hardcore gym fanatics who somehow manage to keep a sun-kissed glow during Lubbock’s icy months. Once you find the type of guy that you want to date, there are plenty more where that came from. Tech guys tend to group together in fraternities or clubs, and they begin to take on the persona of the group. From the way they dress to the slang they use, each group of guys is unique, and it is easy to find a place to fit in.
