Louisiana Tech University Reviews
I'm currently a senior at Louisiana Tech and I have loved every minute! I joined a sorority my first year and through that I have gained friends who encouraged me to get involved on campus in areas that I'm interested in and in organizations that they thought I would like. Because of the wonderful people at LaTech, I've been a member of leadership team at my church, the Student Government Association, Bulldogs for Life, AED PreMed Society, and many honor societies. The friends I've made here see the potential in me and push me to apply for leadership positions on campus. I'm pre-med and as I've gotten older, I've grown close to other students in my major and they are a HUGE support system for me because we share notes, advice, and prepare for things like interviews together. I can't think of much that I would change. I would like for the Pre-Med/Pre-Dent Advisory Committee interviews to be offered in the fall quarter instead of just once a year in the spring quarter.
Attending Louisiana Tech has been the greatest experience of my life. The president, Dr. Guice, is so kind and friendly and every student has opportunities to get to know him. The campus is very student-focused and has a diverse population. Louisiana Tech is like a family. Everywhere you go, there will be a familiar face! I would choose this institution every time!
So far I am in love with Tech! Everyone is very helpful & kind. No matter what the problem may be, some one is always there to assist you. The classes are very rigerous and challenging. The professors really connect with and care about students. The cafe food is delicious & if that isn’t enough, there’re several other restaurants surrounding campus. I love the location and the spirit of Tech!
