Louisiana State University Reviews
LSU is an amazing school, full of diversity and tons of extracurricular activities and clubs. The Animal Science program was going through a rough patch when I was attending school for my undergrad, but it is improving for sure! More classes are becoming available in my field of study, compared to the few and many cancelled classes during my time. LSU is fully committed to improving the Animal Science program, and it has an fantastic Vet School for those of you interested in that side of the career.
My undergraduate degree at LSU is an indescribable learning experience that is vital to current success and self worth. I met countless new friends, obtained opportunities and really took life by the reigns for the first time, which opened up my eyes to how the world works. Without this experience and additional education after High School, I would not be the person I am today. The EJ Ourso College of Business was remarkable, along with various other degree programs and colleges at the university. Athletics, student life and location were also some of the best imaginable to a prospective and even graduated college student.
LSU was a great experience for me. Academically, I was challenged to push myself in every discipline. From english, to economics, to information systems, to biology, to communication, to music, I learned and grew as a student. Socially, LSU is one of the most fun environments I've ever experienced. It is large enough that there is a group of people that everyone can connect to. Athletics are among the best in the nation and student involvement is to the extreme. Student government, student-led organizations, religious organizations, and many other social groups are thriving and full of students. Baton Rouge is a great city. Not too big and not too small for me, I found plenty of shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and work opportunities while at LSU. The people at LSU are the highlight. Louisiana culture is marked by hard working people who love life and find a way to make everything fun. LSU is also affordable and in line with other flagship universities. And last but not least, from Lafayette to New Orleans you will find the best food in the world.
If you go in without a plan then by the time you realize you don't want to do what you've been working towards it'll be too late. I started with a major in biology and finished with a bachelors in biology. I added the marine concentration when I realized my only career path with a purely Biology degree was into medicine which my grades weren't up to par for and I wasn't really interested in anyway. There was almost no outreach for post graduate planning as far as I can tell. When I was invited to a career fair (apparently they have this every year I just didn't know when and where it was until I got an email my jr year) I realized my degree was horrid but it was too late. If I were to start over I would wind up in debt and without a degree for a couple more years. Overall, I just feel that there wasn't enough guidance when it came to formulating a solid career path. It's my own ignorance that led to this waste of time, money and effort but as a first generation college graduate, I hardly feel responsible for mistakenly thinking a degree in a science field would be barely usable.
LSU was the best decision I ever made. I made lifelong friends and created memories that will last for the rest of my life. LSU's campus is beautiful and inviting and always made me feel like I was at my home away from home. The culture of campus makes it feel intimate and homely, even though there are dozens of thousands of students enrolled. LSU will forever be near and dear to my heart and I would choose it over again every day.
Louisiana State University is a decent college program. The advisors are terrible because they give bad advice and typically make mistakes when advising, which ends in many students requiring extra semesters to complete a simple undergraduate degree. Many of the departments have huge 1000 person classes. Too many of the science and math classes are computer based tests with no partial credit.
I graduated from Louisiana State University twice. Once in 2010 with a degree in Communication Studies and Film and Media arts and again in 2015 with a degree in History and Secondary Education. Both degrees are worth every penny spent. My professors were amazing in both degree programs. They were knowledgeable and care about each student's academic success. GEAUX TIGERS!
Louisiana State University is a beautiful school with a long list of degree options. The professors truly want to see their students enjoy class and succeed. Professors in your specific degree will work extra hard to get to know their students and help them with whatever they need to graduate. With the professors and students, LSU offers an amazing learning environment.
My experience as an undergraduate at LSU was nothing short of amazing. From the classroom to the parade grounds, the memories made will last a lifetime. I had wonderful instructors in the Communication Disorders program, and am excited to return for my Master's.
I greatly enjoyed my time at Louisiana State University. The EJ Ourso College of Business provided me with the resources and tools I needed to be successful post-grad. They even hosted Business Etiquette Dinners that gave me the etiquette rules I follow to this day. I got involved with several student organizations and even had the opportunity to study business in London, Brussels, and Paris. The networking and internship opportunities were key to me getting a job offer the day before graduation!
