Louisiana Tech University
"At Tech, you'll belong. Tech is family." That's how one graduate described the Louisiana Tech experience. With its reputation for offering a private-college atmosphere at a public-university price, Tech is one place where students are always remembered, from the faculty who take personal pride in student achievements to the bricks in the alumni walkway that bear graduates' names. Founded in 1894, this selective admissions university offers more than 60 undergraduate majors and a wide variety of graduate degrees from within its 32 masters' and 9 doctoral programs .
Tech has 1,551 freshmen and a total of 11,014 students, all thriving in a safe and supportive environment where collaborative research opportunities enhance learning alongside extracurricular and NCAA Division I athletic programs that enrich student life. Five colleges offer undergraduate studies while students who opt to pursue postgraduate studies have access to faculty and facilities on the cutting edge of bioengineering, nanotechnology and information technology as well as in the area of intellectual, social and economic development.
Louisiana Tech is one of only two public universities in Louisiana to be ranked in Tier One of National Universities by U.S. News & World Report. Tech is classified as a Research University/High Research Activity (RU/H) by the Carnegie Foundation and has been recognized by Newsweek and The Daily Beast as one of the 25 Most Affordable Colleges in the nation, for both in-state and out-of-state students, and by Affordable Colleges Online as the No. 1 institution in Louisiana for overall return on investment (ROI) to its graduates.
Other highlights include the 16-story Wyly Tower of Learning, the cutting-edge Institute for Micromanufacturing, University Hall, and Joe Aillet Stadium - Home of the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. The 255-acre campus is also home to Tolliver Hall with its popular Java Cyber Cafe'; the Lambright Intramural Center with two swimming pools and a rock climbing wall; two theatres dedicated to the performing arts; a nine-hole university golf course; and University Park and Park Place - apartment-style communities located in the heart of campus life. The university, which sits on the edge of historic Ruston (population: 22,000), enjoys close ties with its friendly neighbor. Many of Tech's students are actively engaged in cooperative projects with Ruston businesses and serve in local civic organizations.
