The school started out as an academic-focused technical school with few sports. They are now increasing the number of sports offered to attract more students to the programs, despite the minimal space for the required fields. This shift of focus is not something every student supports. Many of us choose Lawrence Tech for its minaimal distraction atmosphere and we know with more sports there will be more unnessary distractions present.
Campus crime is horrible! My first year in the dorms, there was a giant break in and everything was stolen my my dorm (not to mention dozens of others). Police did absolutely nothing and housing basically said it was my fault ugh. Watch out for those catalytic converter thieves that hit all the parking lots. Campus security is a total joke. I mean there are articles about the main guy Driving drunk and arresting a nonstudent, it's ridiculus. There is no health clinic like other colleges which is stupid, but at least Beaumont hospital is close by.
In my experience with LTU as a design major, I've met some great fellow designers and professors who actually care about their students' success. The food isn't amazing, but it is something. Being it's a small, private university, it's relatively boring if you're looking for a real party scene. But as far as academics are concerned, I give an A-.
