Working in Natchitoches
I absolutely love Natchitoches. Everyone in this town is very friendly and helpful. If you’re looking for a “home” away from home Natchitoches is the place to visit! The town is full of history and if you love to shop the front street is the place to see. My favorite thing about Natchitoches is their festival of Christmas lights. The town is decorated with hundreds of thousands of lights along the river and is visit by people all around the world.
Natchitoches is a small, southern town with the most unique environment I have ever experienced. The university creates a diverse culture, with students throughout the world and country. Although the town is small, there are many opportunities for college students to relax; paddle boarding/kayaking, a great nightlife, biking trails, and a fantastic music scene.
I like how the community comes together and celebrates things such as the Christmas season when we all come together at the Christmas festival. Though, I do not appreciate that there aren't many opportunities here career-wise unless you're going into the medical field.
