Louisiana State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (25)
Louisiana State University is a great institution for those looking for an incredible education, great student life opportunities, and an overall affordable education. There is nothing quite like a Saturday Night in Death Valley surrounded by 103,000 other tiger fans cheering on the football team. But also, walking through the Quad to class, talking with friends and classmates, and being able to take in the beauty of our campus, is quite incredible. LSU has many major offerings and each major follows under a College. There are great advisors to help you decide what courses to take and the career center is great resource to finding internships and jobs after graduation. I would highly recommend Louisiana State University to any student who wants a great college experience, a rigorous education, and a true experience of a SEC school! Geaux Tigers!
Louisiana State University is a school that prides itself on offering high quality education and abundant opportunities to prepare their students for their future careers. I can say with certainty that upon completion of my Bachelor's in Science in Child and family Studies degree, I felt confident to enter the workforce with the skills and knowledge to be successful. The professors I interacted with genuinely cared about my successes and my failures and they did everything they could to help me succeed in my program.
I was one of the first graduates of the new education program at LSU in 2008, nicknamed the "No Child Left Behind" Degree, due to the move of have teacher's being required to hold a degree in their teaching area, and then a supplementary degree in education. My experience was extremely positive with admissions (as a transfer student), college professors, counseling and guidance, and student teaching assignments and experiences! It was a wonderful program for students that wanted to become teachers. I have taught six years, starting in history, and I am now a Gifted Education Teacher at one of the top schools in New Mexico. I have felt my courses for my degree really prepared me for the teaching profession. Geaux Tigers!
Louisiana State University is a top notch school and I will forever cherish my days there. The curriculum was tough but fair, and actually prepared me for my future career. But outside of the classroom is where the memories are made. LSU's sports team are some of the best in the country and Saturdays in the Fall are something everyone must experience, words cannot even describe it.
It truly was a great experience. I wish I had not taken so long to decide my career path though. I am glad that I did put in a lot of effort towards my studies instead of prioritizing partying or hanging out with friends. I allowed myself free time only after I completed my set amount of work I wished to complete for the day.
I loved my college; although, when I attended, there were different faculty and it was still growing as a department since hurricane Katrina changed everything. I believe that each year it keeps improving.
The university's academic programming was challenging, yet reasonable. I really believed that the quality of instructors offered at Louisiana State University (LSU) made a huge impact on student learning. The courses were diverse in content and approach, which accommodated a wide range of students. Student involvement in service organizations was impressive. Many of the undergraduates gave back to the community or university in some fashion. The academic counselors and diversity directors were very helpful throughout the entire experience. My only regret is that the university was not as diverse as I would have liked it to be. There were large numbers of racially separate student organizations. Overall, I think it is a wonderful school to attend, and it will offer you a lifetime of memories, both socially and academically.
The environment created by administrators and staff at LSU's School of Social Work was highly engaging and supported my desire for academic challenges. It was not, however, insurmountably difficult to obtain a degree in this particular college. If you're looking more for social opportunities, they've got that covered too. I joined three separate organizations on campus within this college and was highly satisfied with the many opportunities to socialize with classmates.
After four years at L.S.U., I feel that I was completely prepared for the world of teaching. My professors knew what was demanded in a school setting, and my experiences gave me the confidence to move forward as a teacher. My content knowledge and training helped me pass the PRAXIS the first time, and I felt ready to take on any school experience.
LSU offers a great college experience. Great balance of education and extracurricular, and there's always lots to do around campus.
