Louisiana Tech University
The Louisiana Tech Community
Louisiana Tech's pedistrian-friendly campus revolves around the oak-shaded Quadrangle and its gardens, benches, and Lady of the Mist fountain. Other campus highlights include Centennial Plaza and its brick walkway that bears the names of Tech graduates, the newly rebuilt Hale Hall (where admissions and architecture are housed), the Bulldog Achievement Resource Center (BARC) in the Wyly Tower of Learning, the cutting-edge Institute for Micromanufacturing, and the new state-of-the-art Biomedical Engineering Building. The 255-acre campus is also home to Tolliver Hall's state-of-the-art cyber cafe for students and the Lambright Sports Center, which houses basketball and racquetball courts, sauna facilities, weight rooms, and an indoor track. In addition to our excellent academic programs and commitment to student support, campus life is fueled by over 160 student organizations. Louisiana Tech competes in sixteen Division I sports and is a member of the Western Athletic Conference (WAC). Students are admitted free of charge to all Tech sporting events. Louisiana Tech has been recognized as a national leader in nano and biotechnologies. Tech was recently ranked third in the nation for nanotechnology education and tenth in the nation for nanotechnology commercialization, according to Small Times Magazine, a leading industry publication that focuses on business news and information about small technologies, including nanotechnology and microsystems.
