Louisiana State University Reviews
As a biological sciences major, my first year at Louisiana State University was an irreplaceable experience that I would definitely say attributed to my development, maturity into adulthood, and overall improvement as a scholar. LSU's College of Science offers its students many academic advisory, research, and laboratory resources in order to provide an exemplary educational environment for its students to thrive. The student community is diverse, and campus life is so eventful and lively. Everyday holds a new sight and experience that I feel I would never have gotten anywhere else and I am excited to see what the future holds for me during my remaining undergraduate experience!
The first day you come to campus, you will realize you had made the right decision by choosing LSU. Everyone is so warm and welcoming, the professors are highly knowledgeable and extremely creative. Every single person will try to help in the best possible way, which is very important when you become a part of a new surrounding and there are a lot of questions you want to ask. Completely positive experience so far!
LSU has been the greatest experience of my life. It has just about everything. It can seem really big when the Tigers are playing in Death Valley on a Saturday Night, but also could feel like a small homey college when in a class of only 15 students. The professor at LSU want the absolute best for each individual and help us succeed in all aspects of our lives. I am an athlete at LSU which is a dream come true! LSU cares for the upmost health and success for us on an off the court. We have tutors, nutritionist, and so much more to help make us become the very best versions of ourselves.
