You Belong at Tech
One source of our University’s strength is its diversity. Contrasts create learning experiences beyond the classroom, and our students have the opportunity to engage in high-impact learning practices such as study abroad. Our students come to Ruston from 47 states and 64 foreign countries. Partnerships with large and small companies enrich students’ learning experiences and increase their chances of finding great jobs in Louisiana and beyond.
Meet our campus community
Until late in her senior year at Caddo Parish Magnet High in Shreveport, Elizabeth Mitchell Taylor was focused on becoming a professional dancer.
But late in the game, she decided to keep dance as a hobby only and, since she was good at math and science, pursue engineering instead. Which is why today she is dancing with the stars, working as an industrial engineer for NASA, developing the software for the space station being designed to orbit the moon.
Louisiana Tech graduate Tim Cutt, ’83-Petroleum Engineering, and his wife Carolyn recently donated $250,000 in honor of former Petroleum Engineering professor Dr. Robert Caruthers to assist in rebuilding the Lady Techster soccer complex, which was one of five Louisiana Tech Athletics facilities damaged or destroyed during the April 25 tornado.
Sean Berman has received a grant to continue research focused on repairing the sort of damage to the brain that combat veterans might have experienced as the result of blasts and that football players might have experienced as the result of blows to the head.
