This is a great school where you are not a number to a professor! They will work with you all you have to do is ask. Here at the lake is a small tight-knit community where they want you to succeed. You have access to all the resources that you would be necessary both academically and personally. With the school being only about 10 minutes from downtown, there is always something to do on your off time, but if you don't want to leave campus there is always some type of event happening somewhere on campus. I am glad that i chose to come to the lake!

Our Lady of the Lake has been a blessing to my life. I love that the classes are small. You're able to interact with the professor very easily. Every single professor I've had has made the learning experience so easy for me. They're teaching methods have allowed me to understand the course and the content. The University also has something going on every day. We are also very involved with our community and we're fortunate enough to be in a local area where we have a good amount of access to community services near us where most of the students attend. The university also provides a lot of services for students and the community. Their help services for the students has been a great impact through the years. Though Our Lady of The Lake is more expensive than some of us can afford, the environment and the programs that the University offers has made me feel like it is still worth attending no matter the cost.
I have already been at this university for two years now and I love it. It is very welcoming and open. For students who want small classroom sizes, this university is perfect for those students. It has a very rich sense of history and connection with the Catholic faith. The university is constantly expanding in size and in fields for majors and minors. There is always a positive attitude there and the teachers and staff are always there to help you get your degree and walk the stage. When I first got to the university, I was nervous but have since made many friends with students, teachers and staff.
