Which is a better place to live, Ruston or Shreveport? Will be going to school in Ruston, but new job is in Shreveport. Any recommended apartments?

Ruston. There is less crime there. Nice small town.

Depends on what your schedules are like for school and work. I went to school in Ruston for years and had a job 3 days a week in Bossier City, which I commuted to from Ruston. An easy drive, but if I had had to do it 5 days a week on a regular basis, I'd have moved to Bossier or Shreveport and commuted the other way.

You should check out whether the classes you need are ever offered through the Barksdale Air Force Base campus. Quite a few are, or at least that was the case when I was there 10 years ago. Good luck.

awesome! Thanks for the info on the Barksdale campus. I didn't even know this was a possibility.

Move to where your job is. That way you'll have less hassle with work attendance - your real bread and butter. It's seems easier to get a job if you have experience but no degree than if you have a degree but no experience.
