I absolutely love college thus far. All of my professors are very encouraging and helpful. My college experience is unique in a way that this wonderful college has an Olympic weightlifting team that sent one of the lifters to Rio! I'm an Olympic weightlifter and my coach is doing everything in his training plan to make each lifter successful in not only thee sport but life a well. This college wants you to take your experiences and not just have fun and create memories but use them to obtain further success outside of the classroom out in the real world.
Review Louisiana State University - Shreveport
Some of the teachers were good, but most weren't they didn't know the subject they were teaching, they didnt give you option for tutoring/help, grievances were filed, appeals were done, advisors giving out false information about academic policy, there were many of the head people who were just rude and disrespectful. My coworkers wife left before she finished because of how they treated her. I have two classes here and I can't wait to leave. I will not consider this school for my Masters I would never put myself through the pain and suffering I have dealt with at this school again.
Everyone here is a baseball fan- you have to be! Not only do we have baseball we also have basketball that we all support. One unique sport that most colleges don't have is an Olympic weightlifting team, which I'm apart of. This team is supportive with each athlete and we host the Japanese team each year to train with us.
