We already knew this, but according to Niche.com, our Texas Tech University is a wonderful public university, ranking in the top 5 statewide.

The Top Public Universities ranking is based on rigorous analysis of academic, admissions, financial, and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education along with millions of reviews from students and alumni.

Here's the complete Top 5, along with their "grade":

1. University of Texas- Austin,  Rank: A+

Not to mention their gorgeous campus and incredible museums.

2. Texas A& M University,  Rank: A+

3. University of Texas- Dallas, Rank: A-

4. Texas Tech University, Rank: A-

We took major points off for safety, getting only a C+. Luckily, TTU is already making major changes to improve campus safety.

5. University of Houston

Number 4 out of the 37 public universities is something to be proud of. However, I know that Texas Tech is constantly investing time, money and brain power into becoming even better every year. Wreck 'Em, Tech!
