I attended Louisiana College for the TEACH Program, a graduate level teaching certification program. While enrolled, the staff was often rude when I had questions. I struggled in the program as a first year teacher and the advisors were not supportive at all, at times were very rude to me via email, and all but told me I was not competent to be an educator. I ended up dropping out of the program and enrolling in a different one that has been a much better experience. I personally had a horrible experience going through this program and would not recommend it to anyone that does not have prior teaching experience.

I initially attended LC to play golf, I played all four years and had a great time. The team might have not been the best, but the teammates I had, I will be friends with them forever. The curriculum was tough, I graduated in Business. My degree was basically a dual major but in one degree. I graduated with in Business Administration with specializations in management and marketing. I do wish that the president would put more money towards the programs to help get more teachers or even give the teachers more options as to how to teach or be active within the class. The school does tend to make budget cuts often, most likely due to the amount of scholarships that they give people to attend. With all that said, it is a private school so they do care about you being there and the teachers will help you to succeed, but it will be difficult.
Overall Louisiana College is a safe, warm environment with friendly people everywhere! I would recommend this college to those that could afford it. I subtracted 1 star because the school is quite expensive, and the offices and admin can be slightly disorganized at times but they are doing their best with so many students on such a small campus.
