2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There's truly nothing worth reporting because this town and this campus are incredibly dull.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are extremely old and the cockroaches are getting bigger.

3 College Freshman

Majors: They have a decent amount of choices for majors but I cannot speak to how high a degree from Louisiana Tech University will take someone.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship through the school and I have not looked into it.

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls are not what I was accustomed to and not at all what typical "college girls" are like.

2 College Freshman

Academics: Unless you're from some back woods, duck hunting, inbred town, the academics here are laughable.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: If you don't own a car, you have to try to get rides from people you know. There is absolutely no public transportation.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I hope you like greasy, fast food chains because that's all there is.

1 College Freshman

Diversity: Louisiana is stuck in the 60's in terms of accepting any minorities.

2 College Freshman

Weather: The weather can change 40 degrees from day to day but the one constant is that it is always humid.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are 3 bars in the town and they are all below average; especially once you've been a few times. There is nothing to say about the nightlife other than non-existent.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: Everything here was top of the line about 25 years ago.

1 College Freshman

Facilities: This school and this town are where fun goes to die. The academics are a joke for anyone who comes from either the north or from a private school.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Down here in the Bible Belt, there's are plenty of students who disagree with what being in college entails.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's mostly just average apartments that are made solely for college students.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I was briefly pledging a fraternity but the party life generally associated with Greek life is far from that on this campus.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports teams are all below average and they do not bring much excitement to the dullness of everyday life in Ruston.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is almost nothing seen on the campus unless you actively look for it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school is in an area where crime really is not an issue so safety is something that comes without thinking about it.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Tech is one of the biggest in the state when it comes to school spirit.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Printing on campus is free. Internet is something the students have to get. If you want Wifi, get a router for your apartment/dorm.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Some off campus housing is down right nasty. Others are way better than the apartments on campus. It all depends on where you can find a spot.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks only hang out with Greeks unless Non Greeks and Greeks have been friends for a while.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: We are from Louisiana. If its raining, snowing, or too hot, no one will go to class.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I dont think Tech is very strict at all. Ruston is a small college town. Its almost obvious that the students are going to do what they want no matter what.
