Louisiana State University - Shreveport Reviews
When I transferred to LSUS, I didn't realize how much teachers didn't care about students and rather collect a paycheck. Teachers were unorganized and all over the place. Also, they allow so many students per teacher and the students are LITERALLY elbow to elbow. The teachers make you feel inferior. LSUS has plenty adjunct /tenure professors and I feel they have no stability in the teaching structure whatsoever. I would recommend a different university in the area if possible.
I wanted to attend college to better myself, as I was the first one to attend school in my family. My mother got her GED after dropping out of school and my dad dropped out of school when he was in the 2nd grade. So, going to college was important to me. I wanted to be a teacher. The only thing I would tell others about it get some counseling with the Financial Aid and look for scholarships. I didn't and am still paying on my college for my Bachelor's degree and am now adding to my debt trying to get my Master's degree. I am now seeking scholarships. Don't fall into debt.
The College of Education at Louisiana State University-Shreveport did an excellent job at preparing me to be an educator. I entered the school system with lots of knowledge, tools, and confidence. They ensured that I had a variety of hands-on experience combined with professors that truly committed themselves to our education and preparation. I am a better educator because I attended LSUS.
I wouldn't recommend this school. It's more concerned about rigor than actually teaching students so they actually learn the content they are paying for. It is mostly concerned about status and taking money from candidates and actually have a very low graduation rates.
LSUS is a wonderful institution for many reasons. The professors are extremely knowledgeable, go out of their way to help their students, and truly care about their students' feelings and education. The classes are intimate, which is something I enjoyed. I prefer this much more than a school with classes that have 300 students and the teacher doesn't even know your name. The campus has a lot of diversity as well, with multicultural students and a vast number of clubs for any student. The staff are also very helpful and it is great to be surrounded by so many passionate people at a university.
LSUS is a reputable university that offers a quality education. In addition to a vast selection of degree options, there's a great deal of organizations for students to get involved in such as: debate team, the Student Government Association (SGA), fraternities and sororities, and so on. The university also has an excellent career services team to help current and former students (alumni) in their career endeavors. If you are seeking a school that offers rich and challenging courses with an atmosphere conducive to learning, then look no further than LSUS.
LSUS is a great place to learn and obtain further education. It has been very helpful and easy to use. I am currently enrolled in a Master's degree that is one hundred percent online. Every time I call, people are very helpful and friendly. I don't have to wait too long to get someone on the phone, they are fast and precise. I love the treatment from the teachers as well.
