La Salle University Reviews

Overall, I was grateful for the experience La Salle gave me during my undergraduate degree. I met amazing people and learned from brilliant professors. I got the one on one attention I needed from faculty due to the overall size of the school. I also was able to join a sorority and other clubs La Salle had to offer. I met life long friends and remained in touch with not only students but some professors as well. Only reason I did not give 5 stars was because the school was very expensive when I attended, (graduated May 2016) and I am in a ton of student debt because of it. However, La Salle recently cut the tuition cost in half, which is great for upcoming freshman! Go Explorers!

It's a mediocre school for mediocre people. Go here if you want a solid education, chances of finding a job, but no ambition for prestigious positions in life. As someone with a lot of ambition and a stronger high school background, La Salle is very limiting for me. The people here cheat, care more about parties, and slack in academics. This can make classes very slow paced sometimes and professors get frustrated. I have met some amazing people here and feel the education is enough but it could do more. Very qualified professors overall.
If you like to party, are a republican, and just want to get a good job, go here.
La Salle University is a close knit college that makes students feel comfortable in smaller classrooms. Even though class sizes are small, the student community are very much involved in student life and offers a variety of organizations and activities for students. The campus is growing with new buildings and developments. The administration and professors are knowledgeable and supportive.
