LeMoyne-Owen College Reviews
Let me start with saying that I have been going to LeMoyne for a very long time. I went to the High School that was located on the campus. I was prepped to take college classes in High School and I must say that was a great experience. When I transitioned to LeMoyne I was already a first semester sophmore which was also pretty great. My first semester of being at LeMoyne I was inducted into the STEM program which was also pretty awesome. I did not stay on campus the first semester because it was my first year of college. But I moved on campus the next semester and it was pretty cool and I had a lot of fun and the food was pretty good.
I love the professors. The coursework is reasonable. But other than that, the campus life is sorry (average at best). The communication sucks. I hear that allegedly some of their classes aren't even accredited. It's definitely the kind of college you start at and move on to something better. I really hate to say that because I still have love for L.O.C despite its cons, but its true.
It's an HBCU college dedicated to educating students. This is a college where people learn to be independent and successful. People are helpful. The teachers are not difficult. My professors call me by my name instead of a number. It is better because i have one on one support. It is a small college. There are a lot of scholarship opportunities.
