Meet your 2022 First Year Ignite Leaders and why they love LTU!



EMILY OSTROWSKI
I love the community created on campus. The small campus allows for everyone to get to know each other and become an inclusive and welcoming space. Facilities take time to get to know each student, become great mentors, and create connections.


JACKI MARSHALL
What I love about LTU is the small and close-knit community. Anywhere you go on campus you'll find a friendly face!



JULIANNA AZZI
“I love LTU because of the community. The relationships you build with students and faculty truly make you feel at home.”


LARISSA MERCADO
What I love most about LTU is how friendly and accepting everyone is, and how tight knit the community is.


NATHAN STRNAD
The main thing that I enjoy about LTU is the community here, it's fairly unique compared to other colleges and definitely something you wouldn't see anywhere else.


BRIANNA STATON-DAUPHIN
I love LTU because of the small community. I am able to talk to my Professors one on one and have hands-on experience in my field. There are also a lot of amazing resources on campus!


BRADY APPLE
What I love about LTU is the community feel! I feel like we have a family feel all around campus!

" What I love about LTU is the small atmosphere and class size, which has given me a chance to make amazing lasting friendships!”


GLORIANA SU'A
I love LTU because coming from far away I made a lot of new friends and made plenty of memories already. I really love my major (graphic design) and playing on the softball team!


SHELBY RAY
I love how close you are able to get with the people at LTU. There’s such a small amount of students compared to bigger universities so you get to know most of the people on campus. It really feels like a second home.
