ULL is the only school I know of where education and culture go hand-in-hand. It was an experience like no other being able to attend a university that not only incorporated local flare in the classroom, but also tried to gear many lessons into how we could use our knowledge and skills to impact our state and the south coast region. As a scientist, I appreciate everything the faculty and staff did for me during my undergraduate career. I made life-long friends with my colleagues and mentors in research. I would choose UL every time if I had to go back to college.
