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.

I am overjoyed about my experience at LOC . From the time I enrolled into LeMoyne-Owen College has been great. People say I'm a walking billboard for the school, because I always have some apparel with LOC on it. I love my school, it has molded me to become a better woman in today's society. From school organizations to school sports has been a joy
Lemoyne Owen is a very good college to is because you have a lot help on people showing you around the campus on each individual building to go to everybody is friendly so I say lemoyne is a good college to get your education and campus safety it is good but also need on improving things but every thing else is fine to so really nothing to complain about LOC I like and I hope that the upcoming freshman this year like it to.
