McNeese State University Reviews
I am currently a sophomore at McNeese State and have overall positive views about the university. I've liked every single professor I've had so far and hope it remains that way. The professors are very understanding and give enough time to finish any work given. I would like to see the Criminal Justice department expand. There aren't that many teachers that work in this department so they have to switch off all the time. The university is nice but it could be nicer, the buildings need remodeling. I enjoy being at McNeese and would choose it over again if I had to!
One of my favorite things about McNeese State is that the student life is absolutely amazing. I find that making connections in college is one of the key aspects to enjoying your studies, and McNeese makes it incredibly easy to do so. The campus is also very inviting and diverse which makes for a great time even when you are stressed beyond measure!
Overall, my experience with McNeese State University has been mostly positive. I like that, in my particular program, the professors are understanding and willing to do all that they can to ensure that you will succeed. My school also alerts students when it comes to employment opportunities, although they are usually in the area of the school location, which is still advantageous for those who may attend school in-person or live in close proximity. My school is great when it comes to helping us with opportunities for learning too. I also like that we get assistance with internships required for our program instead of being on our on when looking for them too. What I would change about my school would be the increase awareness of tuition so students have a better understanding and know what to expect with tuition. Sometimes fee info isn't available timely, and results in less time to accrue money for school expenses, and payment arrangements aren't too flexible.
