La Salle University is a good school, but not a great one. The school is still up and coming and there are several advances that the institution needs to make as it progresses up the ladder. In 2016, La Salle made forward progress by completing its state-of-the-art business school. This was a big accomplishment for the 157-year old university. The business school now towers over the onlooking community, standing as a symbol of hope and progress in the Ogontz community. Despite this, the school still has many weaknesses. The academics, dorms, diversity, campus life, parties, food, and student-life are all average. There is nothing glaringly bad about these things, but they are not in any way excellent. The school needs to keep improving these areas by striving to make them great, but this is something that will take years, and even decades to change. However, although the school is average, it is a good investment for what you get back in return. I would give La Salle a 6/10.

The school has a multitude of majors available for students and the campus is a moderate size. There are shuttles around campus that can help students get around, though the walk from place to place is generally nice. The plus side of it not being too large is that there are not too many students around. Some of the dining halls could be maintained better. There is also a safety concern when it comes to campus police response time. Overall though as a commuting full-time student, I find that my experience the last few years has been a fulfilling one.
There is no consistency in tuition so you don't you're gonna get billed next seamster although they claim that it is always the same. The meal plan is way too expensive for the way they treat the food and also for the quality. The cheapest meal plan is 3,200 dollars and it is mandatory for all students who live on campus. As a person who is medically diagnosed with IBS I was denied to not pay for the meal plan and suffered greatly. I lost a lot of weight because of this issue, which could have been solved if la Salle would just accept my medical note. Not everyone can afford la sales meals when you're not eating them. Not only that may I mention the dormitory during my freshman year had no elevator, had no air conditioning. And during the first two days of my stay here someone passed out from a stroke and the ambulance had to be called.
