I recently finished my freshman year at the University of Louisiana-Monroe. My experience was wonderful. The campus is so beautiful and so relaxing. Almost all of my professors were great and work with you one-on-one if you asked them for help. I did have one or two of your stereotypical grouchy college professors. However, as I came to realize later, they seamed mean and rough on us at the time but they were just trying to prepare us for future classes. The student body is also great. Everyone is so nice and friendly. All the student body organizations were instrumental in getting me adjusted to being at college. Overall, the university is amazing and I do not have a single bad thing to say about my college!
Review University of Louisiana - Monroe
This college gave me the resources that I needed to succeed in my courses. This college also created many activities that helped the students bond with each other. I like that the teachers worked with me personally when I had questions about assignments. This college was a great opportunity for my career, and I'm glad that I attended this college!
The University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM), is a very nice local university that sees students from all over the country and the world. I'm a commuter student so it's harder to be involved in some of the campus life. Luckily, there's plenty of clubs and organizations that are always looking for new members to join. Living on campus definitely means that you'll be better connected and more involved in campus life, but living off campus can still be fun. There are usually three to four different things going during the week that are free and that anyone can join in. There are student prize drawings and the campus Starbucks offers free giveaways every week also. The professors can range from very interested to completely blase. Of course, the general classes are general, but once you've decided a major strat taking classes towards that, everything gets more interesting.
