My favorite thing about LSUA are the professors. I am an English major and every single one of my English professors have been very involved with my education. I receive encouragement, inspiration, and graduate school advice from them. On the other hand, if I were to change one thing about my school, it would be the way that administration is currently run. Every year I have had problems with my financial information, class schedules, enrollment status, etc. Furthermore, it is difficult to contact administration and can take quite a while to get a response, which can cause problems in relation to time-sensitive issues. Thus, the administration on campus could do a much better job at managing student information and being easily accessible.

Me personally Coming from a small town in central Louisiana switching to a four-year university with 90 people per class was a huge new change in my life. Louisiana State University ,Alexandria has made it very easy to get used to the change of me. LSUA Isn’t just a college it’s a social gathering for people all around the world teaching new people new things. LSUA was one of the best choices I’ve ever made!
Great close family atmosphere, motivated staff and instructors, diverse student enrollment. LSUA is a great University for incoming students and a great investment when it comes to your educational future. Low cost tuition and great financial air resources!
