The fall semester of 2014 has been quite eventful for Texas Tech students. To pour salt into the wound of a heart-tearing football season, the university’s students have gotten national attention quite a bit.
This was the sexual slur heard round’ the world! Greek life (university in-specific) has the reputation of being very “rape culture” ridden. Yes, this fraternity was no exception. Texas Tech University wasted no time in discharging Phi Delta Theta from the University. This is a school that does not associate with, or tolerate, such comments or attitudes.
Pop culture vs. the issues
It’s been on YouTube as well as the StudyBreaks blog. The Texas Tech students that were interviewed for this little social experiment knew more about reality TV than the politics that affect their livelihood. Okay, yikes!

They affect our lives so hugely and directly; however, this phenomena is in no way exclusive to Texas Tech students.

It’s looking pretty rough out there for a raider.Before you permanently paint them with a scarlet brush, just remember that the University and it’s students accomplish some really amazing things on a regular basis.
Many Tech students are entrepreneurs and leave the University with the skills to run a successful business. Many have done just that. One student created her own bathing suit line. Some PR students leave Texas Tech and do public relations for politics. Many of the university’s media and communication students leave the university to do a lot of social good. Keep those guns up, Raiders.
