"Overall, I really enjoyed the Psychology program at Northwestern University of Louisiana. There were a few classes that I felt could have been instructed better, but there were also some absolutely amazing professors that truly showed us how we could apply the knowledge in practice. I feel that some of the problems could be fixed if the program had more funding. For the college as a whole, a few notes: the housing is expensive and maintenance was difficult to work with sometimes but overall I enjoyed my time at UP2, the cafeteria leaves a lot to be desired quality-wise but it does provide a lot of options, the gym is absolutely amazing, and the financial aid services can be frustrating."

"The campus is beautiful, and there is always some activities happening. There are many avenues to get involved in such as the campus radio, the newspaper, the year book committee, and several interest groups like the gamers' guild. The campus offers a variety of degree programs. The ones that I recall were a hit were business, education, the arts, and medicine. The faculty at the creative and performing arts department are very knowledgeable and supportive to their students. The facilities are often well managed. I would say that the degree program I was a part of was still in development as there was only one instructor for my concentration at the time. Now, I believe there is a second instructor who specializes in video media. They just introduced Cintiqs and the 3D printer between 2015-2016. The degree program did introduce new things over time such as introducing us to the AIGA, American Institute of Graphic Arts, and taking a tour to the Digital Media Institute. I was one of the first to be offered a scholarship to work in their new Graphic Design Center. They have a great visual arts program, music, and theatre department. There could have been more coverage on contemporary artists or brought in screen printing as a class. I do wish there was more collaboration between the departments as they often seem to segregate themselves. I would still recommend Northwestern State University for its affordability, community, and helpful faculty to anyone. I have known a few people who had transfer to NSU simply because of expenses. The only reason I am not at Northwestern for my graduate school is because they do not offer the Master of Fine Arts (MFA); only MA."

"I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree from here and it was a great experience. My instructors were professional and the tuition wasn't overpriced. Further, the admissions staff and advisors were very personable and helped me through every step until I graduated. Hence, I was able to speak to the same people who followed my progress throughout my duration as an online student. I would recommend their program to anyone seeking a school that helps you every step of the way."

"LSC at Northwestern State is an experience in which you get out what you put into it. Like at any college, you can choose to party or procrastinate, improve your social life, not take academics seriously, but when it gets down to it, your friends will graduate and you won't. If you like a challenge, small class sizes, open-minded discussion, learning about culture and how you fit into it, LSC might be for you. If you put forth effort towards your education and learn from your professors and classmates outside of the classroom, you will have an education and college experience that is unparalleled. As a student, I studied hard, but I also got involved on campus in student organizations and greek life. LSC students are outgoing, tend to go the extra mile, hold leadership positions in most campus organizations, and are a cut above the rest upon graduation. Studying hard, being active on campus, and making life long friends is too much a life changing experience to miss out on, especially at LSC."

"Northwestern State University has been my school of choice for the past 10 years of my education. I have completed two degrees and working on a 3rd (my masters) completely online. Staff are quick to answer questions and the faculty are very knowledgeable about their specialties. I highly recommend this institution if you are interested in continuing your education while balancing other elements like family, work, and even social activities!"
