University of Louisiana - Lafayette Reviews
It's a beautiful place to attend school. There is a swamp in the middle of the campus with live alligators living in them. Everyone on campus is extremely nice. Southern hospitality is definitely not lacking. The city revolves around the school, so you are always the center of attention. The constant tuition increase is undesirable and so are all of the construction they have around campus. Most teachers are very helpful and willing to help you any way possible. The school's name doesn't hold a lot of weight outside of Louisiana yet, but we are a unique school. The only Ragin Cajuns in the world, Ayee!
The people on and off campus are extremely nice. The surrounding culture is unlike any other. There are parades and fairs that pass right next to the campus. Many of the students are actively involved with the great myriad of clubs available, which are often involved with helping in the community. All of my teachers so far have been extremely nice and helpful. There are a few buildings around campus that have elevators that are only handicapped accessible. At some point in going there you will hear tales of Mount Griffin, a five floor building with only a handicapped accessible only elevator, but everyone seems to have a good sense of humor about it. The campus is surrounded by stores and resturaunts, that are all within walking distance, so there's always something you can find to do.
UL allows its students to strive through academics while enjoying in many things the campus and surrounding community has to offer. Professors are always nice and care about each student, which is one thing that separates this university from any other. Well, that and our on-campus swamp!
