I'm a journalism major here, and I feelAverageJournalism
I'm a journalism major here, and I feel like coming to school here for that was a mistake. I use to enjoy what I did and now I feel like I'm being forced to do it. I didn't get a syllabus for one quarter until we were three weeks into the quarter. I feel like in the freshman level classes, there is a lot of required busy-work, that you are expected to do outside of class, never mind the other classes you may be taking. I'm considering either changing my major and staying here and giving this university another shot, or changing my major and completely transferring schools. If you are a journalism major and absolutely love what you do, I would not recommend coming to school here for that. I have nothing against the other subjects. It's a good university, the Greek life is amazing, there are just some things that aren't as organized as they need to be.

I know eveyone has their own opinion aboutBrightPhysics
I know eveyone has their own opinion about this school. I will be slightly broad but this is my experience. Tech does have qualified staff and the university environment inspires learning. It is a quiet and safe campus so I have no arguments to that. Are some of the staff self-absorbed, YES. However not all and you can identity the ones that are fairly easily if you keep an open eye. I did come to Tech to learn and become a proffessional and I have learned skills in my classes to become just that. Really Ive learn most about being a better person through encounters with the faculty and friendly citizens of Ruston. The engineering professors are very knowledgeable, but they are not all friendly and willing to help so for the most part you need to watch your own back along with friends to have the best chance. All in all, I would say LA Tech is a good public school. I am never going to say it is the "best school ever" like those people (mainly women) on sites like cappex. Their are way better engineering schools in the United States people so WAKE UP. Tech is ranked 126th for the best engineering schools according to the US NEWS for 2013. (Dont believe me, Look it up yourself). By the way, US NEWS decides which tier universities fall in, so it is relatively legitimate to go by them. Sorry I dragged on them, but someone has to poke a hole in Tech's ego.
