Our Lady of the Lake University Reviews
Such a wonderful school! Great professors, who are concerned with student's long-term goals. I applied to this university even though I am not a devout Catholic, and never have been. I was shocked to find out that this is not a requirement. This proves that this school is superior when it comes to diversity. There are people from all walks of life, including the staff.
What I loved most about Our Lady of the Lake was the small classroom settings. Most of the classes I took were no more than 20 students. This allowed for the professors to be able to create relationships with their students and to actually get to know them. The atmosphere of the campus and the culture that it held by being in the west side of San Antonio, Texas, created a unique environment. Most of the classes I took were science based, and the fact that a lake was located right next to the campus created many situations that were perfect for the professors to take the classes outdoors to do research. All of the professors were completely understanding and wanted the best for their students. They did everything they could to prepare me for life after college. They were also very understanding of my schedule when I was involved in collegiate soccer.
Our Lady of the Lake University is an impressive haven for learning to say the least. I have been attending this institution for one year now (as an off campus commuter) and have had nearly 100 percent positive experiences. So far the professors here have been very helpful and sincere in their efforts to foster student success. OLLU reached out to me to offer scholarships when no other four year university did. Even when I struggled to pay tuition, they found academic scholarships to finance my degree plan. If a student is looking for a one on one environment that allows student growth on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level then Our Lady of the Lake University is the place.
