In 1894, Colonel Arthur T. Prescott was elected as the university’s first president. He moved to Ruston and began supervising the construction of a two-story main building. The brick building housed eight large classrooms, an auditorium, a chemistry laboratory, and two offices. A frame building was also constructed nearby and was used for mechanics instruction. The main building was located on a 20-acre (81,000 m2) tract of land that was donated to the school by Francis P. Stubbs. On September 23, 1895, the school began its first session with six teachers and 202 students.
In May 1897, Harry Howard became the first graduate. Colonel Prescott awarded him a bachelor’s degree in industry, but there was no formal commencement. The first formal commencement was held at the Ruston Opera House the following May with ten graduates receiving their diplomas.
The Constitution adopted on June 18, 1921, changed the name of the school in Article XII, Section 9, from Louisiana Industrial Institute to Louisiana Polytechnic Institute, or “Louisiana Tech” for short.

According to figures analyzed by ExcelenciaCerca half of Latino students are the first to go to college in their families. And nearly half of them qualify for federal Pell Grants, money earmarked only for those with the greatest financial need. Meanwhile, barely one in five white students are first-generation and about one in three qualify for Pell Grants.

Palliative Care in Latin America ECHO is a virtual learning network aimed at health professionals to develop their skills in palliative care. It is articulated through a series of virtual meetings with palliative care specialists that take place on a monthly basis.
The second cycle began in June 2021, structured in two groups: a basic group for health care providers who are new to the practice and principles of palliative care, and a second advanced group for health care providers with experience in palliative care. Below on the page you will find the requirements and links to the form to register for either group.
Palliative care aims to improve the quality of life for patients and their families facing serious illness by preventing and relieving suffering through early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other physical, psychosocial and spiritual problems.

I arrived in Valladolid and I could not stop feeling admiration for this city. For example, I had never seen such a big cathedral, or a church as beautiful as the one in La Antigua, the infrastructure of almost the entire city fascinated me, as well as the Plaza Mayor, and it had a river where I could go running in the afternoons. I kept sending pictures to my friends through social networks, the excitement drove me to it.
From the first day I started going to the University, always walking, cold, rain or heat, because I love walking and I wanted to make the most of this city. I went to my tutor, Silvia Bolado, who showed me the Chemical Engineering and Environment department and helped me to settle in the mentioned department. I took some Master courses to complement my stay. I planned and worked on my PhD activities performing lithium carbonate crystallization from lithium chloride and sodium carbonate in the presence of additives. Academically, it has been a very positive experience. I made many friends and networks to continue working in the future. Definitely, UVa is very good and I recommend it to go and study there.
