    I have great friends, the community is great and full of southern hospitality. It's close enough to home to where I can visit on a weekend if I want to but far enough away to let me feel like I have a sense of my own independence. The dorms could use a little bit of work, though.

    Tech is located in a fairly small town called Ruston. However, Ruston has festivals and neat little shopping places. Ruston is also 30 minutes away from Monroe and 2 minutes away from Grambling. There are always things to do in Ruston and the people are nice and friendly.

    There are plenty of social events and activities for anyone no matter what your particular interest may be. Tech seems to be very athletic oriented, but what University in the South isn't? I enjoy the school spirit, the hospitable peers, the small college town feel, and the overall college experience.

    I love the quarter system because it gives you an opportunity to earn more credits in a shorter amount of time. You also get more breaks more often, though they are shorter than those on the semester system. Also, if you don't like a class, you don't have to worry about staying in the class for half of the academic year. I've also made a lot of new friends in college. Tech is a very diverse campus and it offers so many opportunities for you to meet new people. There are lots of different organizations from religious ones, to sports, to just random things. There isn't much to do in Ruston itself, but if you get involved on campus, you'll find yourself pretty busy. There's also the intramural center which has bowling, ping pong, basketball, pool, ping pong tables and a gym. Tech campus also has a swimming pool. On weekends, you can always go to Monroe, which is only a thirty minute drive, or to Shreveport, which is about an hour drive.
