Louisiana Tech University Reviews
Louisiana Tech is a medium-sized university with outstanding academic programs, specifically in STEM fields. The campus is beautiful, especially in the spring. There are clubs and opportunities available for every student. While it's not known as a party school, the school hosts several events every year designed to destress and have fun, and there are several locations off-campus where students can get together and hang out. The housing options available on-campus are limited. The dorms need renovating and there are several freshmen-only buildings. There are many options for those wishing to live off-campus as well. Overall, a fantastic university!
Tech was my home for just 4 short years, but it will have my heart forever! My husband and I can't wait to show our kids where we "grew up" and got prepared for the real world. I really can't wait to show them our side-by-side bricks. Twenty years later, we still talk about our fantastic professors and amazing experiences on campus and in Ruston. Our degrees served as wonderful foundations for our service on active duty, graduate school programs, and our professions. We are so grateful for our time at Louisiana Tech.
Louisiana Tech University is such an amazing place to further a student’s education. I absolutely love the atmosphere here. We have a very “family-oriented” culture here at Tech. There is always someone who has your back, and there will always be someone there to guide you along the way. I personally have all of my professors’ phone numbers to contact them at any point and time. I rate Tech 10/10, and I recommend it 100%!
