Hello!

My name is Adriel, and I'm from Sao Paulo Brazil.
I always wanted to study and live in the USA, and last weekend I met with some representatives from Louisiana Tech University at a International Student EXPO here in my city an got some information. Then I researched about the University, and I became very interested. Before I apply to the school, I have some questions about there and about living in Louisiana, could you help me please?

Is Louisiana Tech a good school?
What's studying and living in Louisiana like? It is a nice place?
It's safe?
What's the weather like?
What are the best things to do there?
Do you have any advices or recommendations about living there?

I guess that's all...

Thanks Guys!

Louisiana Tech is a great school. One of our best behind Tulane and LSU.
Louisiana will be 100% different than where you are, that's a given. Nice is subjective, being from Sao Paulo it will be a very dramatic culture shock moving to lil 'ol Ruston.
The weather is hot, humid, and sticky from about April to early October.
The most popular activities in Ruston will be hunting, fishing, college bars, camping, etc. It's a country town.

Prepare to live in the country!

If you prefer smaller towns, Ruston will be good to you, however if you like bigger cities I would highly suggest you look into UL in Lafayette, LSU in Baton Rouge, and Tulane or Loyola in New Orleans.

Good luck

LA Tech is in a very small town, only about 10000 people. Young people may feel very boring here.
San Paulo is a huge city, period. So, I recommend you enjoy life in New Orleans, trying Tulane or some school in Texas.
