Louisiana State University - Shreveport Reviews
So far the faculty has been very helpful and offered full support for applying, registering, and answering all questions. I have really enjoyed my experience and the classes are very valuable and easy to follow along with! I am very excited to continue my education here and get my MBA
From my experience, a large part of the campus is made up of non-traditional students and commuters. Therefore, it makes for a different type of college experience. The relationships you build with those in your classes and the student life is not as large since most people are working, have families, or more responsibilities. The student government is working and has come a long way on things they do offer and do to help the students get involved but it just takes time. The classroom size is small so you do have the opportunity to build a relationship with your teachers but the school is hurting financially (like most schools), so that does reflect in the faculty as most are older and tired and younger faculty are just not attracted to the university. This is not to say these teachers do not care but some new blood is needed and it is needed soon.
I recently enrolled at LSU-Shreveport, but so far I've had a great experience. The university offers several degree programs from undergraduate to doctoral; many of which can be completed 100% online. The tuition is also incredibly low. I'm not sure what clubs, activities, or amenities are available on campus since I am online out-of-state; however, I have spoken with a number of people in various departments and each was pleasant and very helpful. I'm glad this is where I chose to pursue my Master's degree.
