Academics: Depends on your professor. Some are hard, others are a walk in the park. Just attend class

Cafe: Not so good, you mostly eat the same things each week, but its cheap. Around 1k a semester

Housing: It's decent. Had to deal with mold issues, but they are currently fixing those issues. Dirt cheap as well. around 2k a semester. There's also visitation. Normally from 4pm til 11pm.

Library: Typically open from 8am til 10pm.

Parties: Events are okay..nothing too big of a deal

Sports: The school lack spirit, except for homecoming. Everyone is turned up then.

Band: A growing program. Come be apart of the Quiet Storm Marching Band. Everyone treats you like family.

Overall, It's a good school. I believe if you have a 3.0 plus straight out of high school you will receive a presidential scholarship of 5,000 per semester. College life here is what you make it. If you're lame..your experience will be lame.

Everyone greets you.

..and oh. FREE WIFI lol

My online experience was great I could not complain on this side. Lane has great ways to keeping you connected to the internet and the professors were able to stay in touch with me and make sure that I was on schedule. I learned that it’s my responsibility to make sure that I get more done when I meet you in the light I said how to take responsibility for that rather than blaming other people.
My overall experience there was good for me. I was able to experience leadership skills. I was able to join the NAACP for some activities I spoke at a conference with the mayor of Jackson Tennessee. That was exhilarating my blood was boiling.
