After attending LSUS, leaving for another college, then returning back to LSUS, I can say wholeheartedly that I consider LSUS to be my home. Although it may not be as luxurious as some other colleges, the staff is phenomenal and tuition is reasonable. My main qualm would have to be lack of advertising of it's clubs and organizations on campus. Joining a greek organization on campus had to be one of my best actions in college because it helped me to gain many life skills; however, because it was not advertised well, I only gained knowledge and interest my senior year. I regret not becoming active on campus when I first joined and highly recommend looking into campus involvement when you first join any college. You gain life skills, feel a sense of belonging, and refrain from falling into a mundane schedule.
Review Louisiana State University - Shreveport
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.
I like that the school is very diverse and has people from all over the world attending. I would like to see more student activities though. Overall, the school is amazing!
