Louisiana Tech University

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 80 undergraduate majors and a wide variety of graduate degrees from within its 31 masters’ and 10 doctoral programs. Tech has more than 12,600 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. Louisiana Tech's pedestrian-friendly campus centers around the Quad with its shady trees and the Lady of the Mist fountain. Ruston, a friendly Southern town of approximately 22,000, is home to parks, lakes and world-class mountain biking trails.
