Review Southern University & A&M College
Campus life is very enjoyable. The housing process is very satisfying and easy. The dorms are comfortable and convenient and also clean. There is no curfew for residents on campus, but opposite sex visitors do have a curfew. Sometimes it can be hot and uncomfortable in the dorms because of the weather but overall it is comfortable. The assistants are readily available and easy to contact. The social environment is excellent and satisfying, which can sometimes become a distraction to the students! The campus apartments are spacious and offer a lifetime experience! I really enjoyed my time living on campus but it can be an expense when you calculate tuition, housing and a required meal plan. On campus living offers great memories and helps build life time friendships.
As a freshman at The Southern University & Agriculture and Mechanical of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I have come across many faculty and staff members who genuinely care about your future. The advisers, professors and administrators see to it that you are on the right track and you always focused on your studies. Being Southern university is a small campus and has just about 6,000 students, administrators cares about each and every one of us just as much as the next student. The only thing I would like to change on this campus is the appearance. Because we are a smaller school compared to Louisiana State University, I feel as though our needs for our campus goes unseen whereas Louisiana State's campus is constantly flourishing.
My first experience I encountered when I first began to attend this university was very intriguing. The orientation leaders stressed how important it is to go to class, but also how to enjoy the best years of your life we all call college. Move in day was about a week before classes started so there were a lot of "back to school" parties. Some I went to others I blew off. It was a great experience meeting new people and having fun the way young adults should. On the educational side things were for the most part reasonable. Some professors are great while others aren't so great just as any other university would have i'm sure. One thing I would love to see change is the student union. To say we pay for things in our tuition those features aren't even displayed anymore. My overall experience of Southern University would most likely be a four out of five.
