LSUA's motto is "Close to Home, Far from Ordinary." This school is a smaller school located in the heart of Alexandria, Louisiana. The academics are challenging; however the professors are interested in your education and success. Every year has brought new, various majors to this accomplished college! The college also has several talented sports teams, including baseball, softball, basketball, rugby, rodeo, and soccer (to name a few), with more teams being added every year. This school has around 3-4,000 students on campus which allows classes to have an intimate setting. Overall LSUA is an more than a college. This place and the people involved become your best of friends, your family, and references/contacts that will last a lifetime!

There are many reasons of why I love LSUA, one being that the faculty is incredible. All professors and admissions workers can be easily contacted, and they are always helpful and friendly. It is an awesome atmosphere, and of course close to home, but far from ordinary!
Having online courses can be great, because it is very convenient for people who work or maybe have kids. It all depends on what you are taking I personally like taking online classes. It is different from a traditional classroom, because you have the teacher teaching and you know what to expect on a test and you are learning hands on. With online courses you really have to read and learn on your on you basically teaching yourself. I think both of the two have it pros and cons some people do better in class and some do better online.
