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!

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.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a wide array of students on campus. Foreigners from Australia, Slovakia, India, Japan, and other eastern countries have conglomerated at Tech. I have never heard of any of the students disrespecting or feeling uncomfortable around the foreign students, but this is different towards those of different sexual orientation. The campus' number of religious students rivals the number of Greek students and maybe even overshadows them. Many religious disapprove of homosexuals and the like, but there haven't been any serious cases of hazing or prejudice. There seems to be a "to each their own" policy among Tech students. This does not mean that students from different backgrounds do not mingle. I personally have friends from various backgrounds including: poor, rich, African America, Caucasian, Australian, Japanese, Muslim, Catholic, Christian, Baptist, Democrats, Bisexual, Pansexual, and gender neutral. We all get along perfectly fine mostly because we face a common struggle: college.

1 College Freshman

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

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone has their own little cliques and we dont mix it up.
