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!
