It is my opinion that school is school wherever you go, but it is the people who teach there and attend with you and what the school is about that will either draw you in or repel you. The wee town of Ruston is as cozy as a campfire in December and populated with an administration and people who do not crave the party atmosphere but instead have a blast with what is in front of them, hold onto their morals and standards, and do not wonder what they are labelled as. I will most definitely finish my college education at Lousiana Tech University and continue to advertise it as I do now as a school that teaches like all the others but is full of accepting, fun, and passionate people.
