Louisiana Tech welcomes alumni, future Bulldogs for Legacy Day.  Nearly 200 Louisiana Tech University graduates and their children gathered on campus Saturday to learn more about the Tech Family and their options for college during the University’s annual Legacy Day. Despite the cold morning, about half of the guests also accompanied Dr. Les Guice on his Tech Family Walk for a special tour led by faculty, staff, and the President himself.  Legacy Day offers Tech graduates and their children a special time to visit with academic advisors, tour residence halls, and explore the Tech campus. Parents also have the opportunity to learn about financial aid, scholarships, residential life, and alumni news.
