As an incoming Freshman my tour was amazing! The academics and student to teacher ratio were great; 12:1. They are building new dorms which look amazing! The Athletics are growing Baseball is on it's second season and Football will start next year. They are building a new baseball stadium and athletic dorms also. All-in-all my experience touring, meeting with teachers and coaches exceeded my expectations. I can't wait to start my future here at LTU! Possible is EVERYTHING!

It was my first time experiencing college life last year, and I wasn't sure how I was going to fit in. Meeting new people was not my strong suit, but immediately I felt welcomed. It's so much diversity here, but everyone is treated like family. The professors and students really want to see you succeed. Their is never a moment of being on campus thats dull, or boring because theres always something going on. Rather it be Greek Week or a Stress release event. And although the cafeteria food can use some work, they make up for it by having an Einsteins Bagel shop right across from it. I love LTU and I highly recommend anyone to enroll here.
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.
