Welcome To Ruston

Ruston boasts one of the strongest economies in Louisiana. Business is booming in all segments. Two major universities, Louisiana Tech and Grambling State, as well as a community college, Louisiana Delta, are firm underpinnings of a well-rounded economy based on education, natural resources, retail and service, transportation, manufacturing, agriculture and banking and financial services.

The mission of the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce is to cultivate a healthy business environment.

A note from the Chairman


YEA! is a cutting-edge program that takes students between the ages of 11 and 18 through the process of starting and launching a real business or social movement over the course of an academic year . By the end of the class, students own and operate fully-formed and functioning businesses, which may be carried on after their graduation from the program. YEA! aims to teach students at an early age how to make a job, not just take a job.
