Awesome school! The professors are great and care about your education! The professors are very accommodating and are willing to go above and beyond to ensure that you succeed! The school is located in Downtown Lagrange which makes it convenient to local attractions (movies, restaurants, etc.).
Review LaGrange College
The rooms are all bigger than most college dorm rooms. There are some buildings that are very old and you can tell their age, but it is still better than most of the state school dorm rooms. The school makes it impossible for students to choose to live off campus in most ways. Henry is the worst dorm, there are bugs everywhere and it is a motel set up. I currently live there and it is honestly very loud and the ventilation system is not very good. The apartments are very very nice and each student gets an individual room and two people share 1 bathroom, and 4 people share a living room and kitchen. It is actually a great space. There is a workout space in one building and not really many amenities in other buildings. Laundry is usually a hassle, but I feel like that is typical of any college except that our laundry is free. The housing process is simple, so there can't be any complaints there besides the fact that the housing lottery is just time consuming. On campus housing is very expensive, so I feel like they should allow for some off campus options for more students. The best thing about housing is that you are always less than a 5 minute walk from all of your classes!
LaGrange College, can be the place for you. If you like small school environment where you can't walk into a room without knowing at least one person. It has some amazing programs, such as nursing, business, education and exercise science. But at the same time some programs are really slacking such as the Spanish, History and other more liberal arts majors. As a Spanish major I find the program to lack diversity and opportunities. It is great to double major or minor with, but as a solo major it leaves too many gaps in the hours required to graduate. Also LaGrange has an intensive core program, they require classes that the majority of other universities and colleges consider electives, which can make transferring out almost impossible if you don't plan. They also require some other things such as CE credits. This being that you are forced to go to 40 different "Cultural Enrichment" programs put on by the college in order to broaden your horizens. I will say some of these have been helpful and interesting, others put you to sleep. Greek Life is small, but huge at the same time since there isn't much else to do in this town. I would say about 80% of the student population is made up of Student Athletes since it is a Division III school. It isn't great, but it isn't the worst school out there. Just make sure you know what you are planning on doing prior to coming to LaGrange College.
