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!
La Salle University is an amazing university. It is very diverse, has a great student life, awesome professors! The campus is easy to navigate, the staff are great in helping you with class schedule or general needs. Security will always make sure you are safe and are constantly patrolling the area! Great school overall!
If you're of color, a minority, or first generation be very careful going here unless their paying a majority of your tuition which is unlikely because their endowment is so low, and mostly dependent on private scholarships specifically donated by alumni (Look Up ADP Program for Full Scholarship, must be from Philly and apply ahead of time). The professors are sweet, the value of academics are equivalent to service here which is good. Campus life is a little below average. Dorms are very old, and have bugs unless you're in Townhouse, Kats, or Basils. Student Affairs here is very white, meaning they don't serve people of color well. There are no minority focused academic clubs except NABA. Theres two BSUs but they're too often not supported by student affairs administrations which is why there are two.
