2 College Freshman

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

Local Atmosphere: Ruston is a great place to be!

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is great from what I can tell so far! This is my first year at the University, and I am here to play college soccer at the Divison 1 level so for me one of my favorite things has been how supportive the people in the community are. They really want to see the athletes of their alumni succeed.

Local Atmosphere: There is no mall in this town, it's a very small town, so nice restaurants are limited. The scenery is great and being so close to the highway is helpful. Everyone here has real southern hospitality, they're overall very nice people.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere in the city of Ruston is alright. There are not many area attractions and activities for students because Ruston is a small city. However, students can participate in many sports and recreational activities that the campus offers.
