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.

I absolutely love Louisiana College, and I wish I had more time there. The people are amazing and so welcoming. The faculty and staff genuinely care about the students and truly want the best for them. There are always student activities going on on campus, and there is always ways to get involved. Louisiana College has helped shaped me into the person I am today, and I am so blessed to be able to be apart of this school.
I was a student athlete at LC so it meant early mornings and late nights pretty much everyday, but they do the absolute best to ensure that students in that category don’t fall behind academically in any way. It’s a rather small school but if you’re used to tight knit communities then it’ll be perfect. They are very faith based God ties in to almost every class in some way and there’s mandatory chapel on Tuesday and Thursday (Tuesday for freshman and transfers Thursday for upperclassmen and staff). Overall it’s a good place to be and if honestly do it again.
