My Dillard University experience was challenging, rewarding, fulfilling, and world-class! Dillard prepared me for bright and brilliant future. I would not been as successful as I have if it was not for the dedicated and challenging professors, the rich community, and my astute, creative, and unique fellow students. Furthermore, New Orleans is a phenomenal city in which to learn; the culture, arts, living history, and politics were a laboratory of sorts!
Review Dillard University
Dillard University is an amazing school! The professors actually care, and they want you to have a bright future. I would definitely recommend Dillard University to anyone.
Dillard University is located in New Orleans, Louisiana. The university has a fairly beautiful campus with lots of spacious greens and white buildings. Although the school has an amazing, academic atmosphere, student life on campus is a bit unlively. Also, the food in the campus' is always a bit distasteful and unhealthy. Because I am a vegan, it is very hard to get meals that meet my health requirements. When the cafeteria is only filled with foods such as pizza and fries, it can be hard to get anything healthy. The dorm/housing life is okay. If you remain cleanly and you keep everything in check, there should be no problems with rodents of any sorts. Although safety was pretty lackluster for the beginning of my collegiate career here at Dillard, I have been in a fairly safe place right now. Because of a new and improved security system, there is fairly any problems on campus.
