If i have ever loved a school so much! To be such a new and advancing University, the housing is literally an apartment complex. Also, there are so many options for people to do. There are so many opportunities for working, volunteering, traveling, and simply being involved. The LEAP crew hosts free programs like going to Lions games or Cedar Point. Also stuff like glow parties. I still have my TShirt from my freshman year of 2012. The RAs are very attentive. Jets has the greatest enployees and they help the students. There is always something going on in the Den. There is also an open door policy. If there is a door open, walk into it and say Hello!. I also love the FYE course. It encourages freshmen students to get involved with the school and to attened different events. They even take you camping for orientation which was 4 days of awesome. I Love Lourdes University...HOME OF THE GREY WOLVES.
Review Lourdes University
Lourdes University offered excellence in faculty,programs and schedule to complete my additional two years required for a Bachelor Degree in Religious Studies (Major: Theology / Minor: Ecumenical Relations). The staff, faculty, students and location provided a comfortable, inclusive, respectful and positive holistic experience. I served in administration staff positions at School of Medicine - University of California Davis and recently finishing my career in Diversity, Inclusion, Media Relations & Community Engagement at Texas A&M University-Commerce - President's Office. My volunteer work in parish health ministry, choir/music, lay ministry service and Diocesan board member at Episcopal Church has been well served.
Pax et bonum. R.J.Ernst (Class of 1987)
Lourdes University has offered what I could not find at any other college I considered. They offered a small class size and focused education that remained geared toward my chosen major. Instructors are very willing to help after classroom hours and they offer subject-specific tutoring. The community is very safe and free of the "big city" life-style that dominates other colleges and their dorms are actual apartments complete with secured entrances, a complete kitchen and sharing with only one roommate. It is easy to get involved while remaining focused on graduation.
