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 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.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The city of Ruston is a nice and quiet town. It is a beautiful place nice neighborhoods and friendly people however the drawback is that there are not many places of entertainment in Ruston. For entertainment most people usually drive to Monroe or Shreveport.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Because I live in a college town, the community is really friendly and enthusiastic toward the students.

2 College Freshman

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