College. It’ll be here before you know it, and Louisiana Tech wants to help you get an early start. Our Summer Scholars Program is designed to provide a firsthand glimpse into the future of your college experience, by offering you the opportunity to live on-campus and take university courses that will prepare you for life in the college classroom.

College is a time for you to explore your interests, all of them. After class, meet up with new friends and head to Tolliver Hall or the Student Center, home of The Tech Table and other delicious dining options cooking up home-cooked meals everyday. Next, follow your inner adventurer and explore the City of Ruston, where you can check out local shops and restaurants that fit every taste or take a stroll along the Green Island Rockway, a biking and walking trail that runs through Ruston. Later, hit the pool at the Lambright Intramural Sports Center, Tech’s sports complex, home to state-of-the-art aerobic and weight-training equipment.

The Summer Scholars Program offers a world of opportunity as you begin your college journey right here at Louisiana Tech!
