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.

I have really enjoyed Lourdes so far! The campus is beautiful. The class sizes are small so you get to know everyone. The professors are very open and willing to help. Also there is also events, fundraisers, job/shadowing opportunities, tutoring center, etc. There is more than plenty of great features about this college! I would highly recommend it!
SO far my first year at Lourdes University has been many of things but precisely two. My first thing is that the community is so caring and wanting you to succeed that it's really hard to feel out of place and everyone is so welcoming! Secondly The academics and faith base is out of this world! The courses are challenging and you have professors that are always willing to work with you to help you succeed. The great thing is that you can express yourself religiously without anyone judging you are putting you down. Here at Lourdes University you can be comfortable being who you are and getting the chance to experience college for the first hand!
