My experience at the University of Louisiana-Monroe has been wonderful! I just completed my Freshman year and it was better than I expected. All of my professors were very helpful in teaching and guide myself as well as other students. The facilities were up to date and if renovations were needed, it would be taken care of with no hastle. The campus life was always buzzing with free lunch socials, carnivals in the campus park, guest speakers, and other activities to allow students to become more engaged as well as prepare for future plans. I never encountered a problem regarding a safety issue or complained about a professor’s approach to a topic. I would highly reccomend ULM to anyone and everyone considering a 4-year university!

ULM has been an experience like no other for me! Being from Ohio, I was so afraid to move 13 hours away for college. Rest assured, I have never felt alone at ULM. The professors are amazing and extremely personable, the campus is just the right size, the bayou is beautiful and there are so many ways to get involved. You will meet people from all over the world and make amazing connections here. I know 100% that I made the best decision for myself in coming to the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
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!
