@MrsShev:  Congratulations on grad school! I’ve only been to Lubbock once myself and don’t have any living situation advice. However, a friend of mine went there for law school, and the thing that really stuck out in my mind was her complaints of the smell. The city is in close proximity to cattle in most directions, so the wind will often bring in their scents. It will take some getting used to, but at first you may want to make sure to have scented candles and such to help. That’s what she did. Good luck!

@Djacks88:  What did you mean it’s”dry”? There are tons of Liquor stores. It’s a party/college town and alcohol is DEFF not in short supply. I lived there for 4 years and just moved back this year… so unless they changed laws in the past 6 months?

 

@MrsShev:   I went to Tech for my Undergrad. My Fiance and I just moved back to my hometown this year. It depends on what you are looking for? A house, an apartment? I lived right across the street from campus. You can rent a lot of good houses out there for fairly cheap (about $800 a month). It’s a really big thing because there are soo many college students. Also, may I ask what you are majoring in? Market Street is the best place to get fresh/good groceries. I actually worked at the one on 98th and the one on 50th while in college. Let me know anything else you want to know!

Hey there! I grew up in Lubbock Texas… so can answer pretty much any questions.

The dust storms can be pretty bad at times and get used to everything being dry and dusty. Winters aren’t too bad, depending on where you’re coming from. Mostly just cold and sometimes icy.

The southwest is a newer so depending how how far southwest, you’re likely to get lots of the storms head on. Also the reason the southwest keep growing is because they say the wind mostly blows northeast so you don’t get all the smells/filth blown your direction! Personally I don’t really notice it… but that’s just me.

My parents still live there and I go back a lot (or at least, used to before I moved halfway around the world). Anyway, good luck with the move! Happy to answer any questions 🙂

I’m from a nearby town and we used to go to Lubbock all the time. There’s actually a lot to do there. Tech brings in a lot of plays and bands for entertainment. There are the typical good chain restaurants, a decent mall, and some good movie theaters. I like how friendly people are there. It’s a town where you will know your neighbors and be able to trust them.
