2 College Senior

Facilities: La Tech is very traditional. Being an architecture major, I find the entire campus to be boring and non-lifting towards a more modern feel for the students. This school always goes the cheapest instead of the most efficient, and I don't really know why.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Everyone sort of dresses the same in my opinion. I haven't really seen anyone (male or female) who completely stands out in the crowd due to their looks, dress, relationship, or social life. You will see people who want attention, but you shouldn't really encourage them because most of them are acting immature. I would say the best looking people are your own friends.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I wish there were more places to eat at that were a lot closer to campus. It's difficult thinking about where to go when the locations of restaurants are scattered and you know what the experience will be when you get there (repetitive).

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have only lived in the apartment dormitory, which is so much better than the dorms because of the privacy and amenities provided within the apartments. I do wish I had an opportunity to stat at the newest apartments (Park Place) because there are a lot more benefits to it based on the design. It is pretty costly though, and I'm not sure that it is worth staying there.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I wished there were more scholarships that Tech provided for students who do not live in Louisiana. This would really benefit international and US citizen students, especially since the school is receiving various ethnicity. I do appreciate the Out-of-State Bulldog Scholarship, which is really simple to receive and helps a lot with tuition. Check the Administrative Office for this particular scholarship.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love the peacefulness of the city and the campus environment. Living over 5,000 miles away, and it feels a lot like home! It's a fairly small campus so that kind of experience brings home to me when I feel homesick.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Our education is very important when it comes to Tech. Teachers and staff work hard to make sure students strive in school to become better outside (in the real world). There are always career fairs for employer/intern opportunities, and the career center makes sure to bring in opportunity for every student of every major.

4 College Senior

Diversity: The school inherits lots of international and local students. A great school to get to know people from different cultures/ethnicity!

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I wish there was more to do in Ruston, but there really isn't. I suggest going out of town over the weekend because the places here get boring after a while.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Unless you belong in a sorority/fraternity or have a lot of friends, there isn't much to do for nightlife. There are different locations for parties to happen, but it all depends on who you know. I would still say that the nightlife is probably the best thing here at school because of other factors that keep students from living life (aka location of school).

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a number of places available for off-campus living. Prices vary as well as the landlords, but I have heard from fellow classmates what is the best. If you are looking at living off campus, you need to consider time management, money, and transportation route. The campus I currently stay at does not have any public transport, so that is the downside of living off-campus. Everything is pretty convenient, but very costly. If you aren't willing to pay the extra costs, then stay on campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most off campus restaurants stay open till 11 or midnight. Prices are usually no more than twenty dollars and they are always food for everyone . Even for the healthy eaters. Ruston usually stays on top of the food places .

4 College Freshman

Athletics: More than anything at Tech we love basketball !!! The Athletic department makes sure that they just don't provide for the Athletes but they also want to provide exercising , and health facilities for the non athletes that want to be just as healthy .

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our Greek-Life is definitely multi-cultural ! They are big in community service and academics . Our Greek life also are determined to bind with the non -Greeks even if they don't recruit them. Some Greeks have beautiful Greek homes, and some stay in the apartments . I love our Greek!

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There isn't much to do in Ruston , mainly there are a lot of food places . I always tell my friends, TECH is the main attraction , it's where everything happens.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: All building in campus are nice. Tech has the best food places and the best cafè! The book store is owned by Barnes and Nobles and supplies everything that you need . The lambright is one of the best recreational facilities in the country .

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I believe our architecture ,sets us apart , Tech is becoming very modern and been big on technology . My school definitely believes in moving along the generations . One other thing I can say about Tech is that there is always something done to Bring the students , faculty , and staff together . Yes the classes can get tough but Tech immediately becomes home.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It was very easy, as long a you apply with good standards , the Tech fam will accept you. One thing about Tech is that they handle business so when applying , be prepared for an immediate response .

5 College Freshman

Majors: The teachers are awesome , they make sure that they are available to help. If I could do it all over again I would. I know that I am in for a treat.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is fun and there's many types of people

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The experience that I have had so far at Louisiana Tech has been one that has blown me away. There have been fun times and boring times but if given the chance I would absolutely do it all again.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police of Louisiana Tech are extremely watchful and vigilante. They prioritize in making sure students are safe.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Louisiana Tech likes to show students from every lifestyle that they matter. The is an organization for you if you are in the LGBT community: Prism, nonreligious: SSA or any other way of life.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: As a fan of chemical sciences, I can say that the chemistry program at Louisiana Tech is amazing. There are many dynamic lessons that are taught. Lots of hands on material and great professors.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship yet therefor I couldn't tell you much about it.
