4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am so happy I moved off campus. The Residential life made things more difficult than they needed to be at times and maintenance was always a hassle. You can get better living enviornments for cheaper and less hassle off campus

Party Scene: The greeks have parties, but I honestly have not been to a big party on campus, or heard of any that were worth going to. It is best to leave the town and go somewhere else. It is not a party school at all.

Off-Campus Dining: The town has many restaurants that feel like duplicates of the other restaurants. There is enough variety to make it an acceptable amount of choices, but unless fast food is something you enjoy, it is best to cook it yourself. The only ethinic restaurant I can think of is RAW, a sushi place.

Administration: I would classify our school as a fairly lenient with most things. However, one of the girl dorms is extremely strict and watches its residents.

Campus Food: Louisiana Tech is smaller than certain colleges, and the food choices reflect that. There is a small convenience store, Bene's pasta, Mccalisters, Chick-fil-a, burger studio, salad bar, cafeteria, Kick'n Cajun, Sushi, and sandwich area. This year the lambright gym got rid of counter culture yogurt and put in a sandwich shop. The cafeteria is cheap, but you get what you pay for, for it is usually "okay" quality at best. The other food options are overpriced. If you come from an area where you are used to having good food, do not expect to be impressed with the food options.

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus should be remodeled, but I don't see that happening in a year or so. The apartments are much better, but those types of apartments have already become standard living areas for students at other schools I have seen. It is not too hard to move off of campus since the influx of freshman have increased.

Party Scene: prepare to get ticketed or locked up by racist cops if you enjoy yourself after 11 pm.

Health & Safety: safety isn't really an issue on campus. Ruston is too strict.

Greek Life: Predominantly white Greeks have beautiful housing, and easy access to all the benefits on campus. Black Greeks get no benefits, no housing, and are clearly discriminated against on campus.

5 College Sophomore
