      Lubbock, Texas – Located in the heart of the
 vast Southern Plains, Lubbock offers a rich his-
 tory, a dynamic economy, and a unique culture.
 A thriving city of more than 206,000 people,
 Lubbock serves as the region’s economic, edu-
 cational, and health care center. A symphony
 orchestra, ballet, a world-renowned archaeologi-
 cal dig and art venues featuring local, national
 and international artists are only a few of the
 activities on the Lubbock scene.
      Lubbock is located on the Caprock, or Llano
 Estacado, of Texas, at an elevation of 3,256 feet,
 which creates a dry climate with low humidity
 and four distinct seasons.
