Honestly the school is okay but I wish I could go back in time a pick a different place. While the school is pretty (sorta) and the people aren't too bad, the programs don't add up to much. Out of every person I have ever spoken to, only one had La Salle as their first choice. This school hands you tons of money which is honestly why I'm here, but I'll most likely be transferring (fingers crossed). There may be some good teachers but of the class I took only two of them stood out and showed how they actually cared. If you are considering this school please think more carefully that this is really what you want!

Out of my five semesters at LaSalle, thus far i have only encounters two unfair and unruly teachers that played on their tenure benefits. Otherwise, every teacher is honest, laid-back and very open about what is expected. They are resourceful and make you feel like they care. Often times, i remain social with my teachers after a course because the student-professor relationship at lasalle is great!
I am a recent graduate ('15) from the school of business (finance & marketing major). I had a great experience at the school, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. In terms of La Salle's specific location, it is an easy uber ride to a college section of town, Manayunk. Out of towners should strongly consider Philadelphia for those reasons.

The education I received was top notch by any measure.I was also a part of Greek life on campus, and highly recommend that as well. Though some will say the parties have died down a bit in recent years, there are still plenty to be found (according to people there currently).

I wish there was a little bit more offered in terms of school sponsored activities. I enjoyed the recreational flag football basketball leagues, but outside of that, there was not a ton that I was interested in.
