    There are many things to do in Ruston for enjoyment. Catch a movie at the theater, go to a sports event on campus, or attend any of the programs that the SGA or other campus organizations put on. You can also drive to Monroe (30 min away) or Shreveport (an hour away) for a little more variety.

    There is literally always something going on. Approved events can be seen on everything from flyers posted on bathroom doors to hand-written chalk signs along the ground. They even send emails to students inviting them to any event held around campus.

    Ruston is a small town, but it has a lot of personality. There are a few local bars that all the college kids like to hang out in and relax and there are also a ton of community events. For example, Peach Festival is a tradition in Ruston and is very entertaining with its live music, pie eating contests, golf tournament, and scavenger hunt. Football games and tailgating are a must and the Union Board and SGA events on campus are always fun!

    Tech sometimes don't have anything to do on campus but Union Board put some activities together throughout the year. We had a talent show, spring fling, and even a magician on campus as well as a few bands. They also host rock, paper, scissors where you can win real cool prizes like beats by Dre and all you have to do is win a rock, paper, scissors game.

    There are a lot of things you can do for fun but the main thing is going to the Lambright which is a center that is free for students where you can go work out, bowling, play basketball, ping pong, and tennis. There is also an indoor and outdoor pool. There is a food place called Counter Culture that sales awesome frozen yougurt and other foods and drinks. It's just an overall great place to go to have some fun.

    I will admit their is not much to do on campus if you are not involved in some type of organization or have friends to hang out with. However, most people go to the Lambright Wellness Center for fun and it also free since it is paid through tuition. The center has an indoor and outdoor pool, a rock climbing wall, ping pong and pool tables, a bowling alley, fitness rooms, courts, and many other things. Coming here will give you something to do when you are bored out of your mind.
