This is a great school! I am a 100% online student and the organization, school systems, and academic classroom functions are incredible! I've had experience with other institutions and they could not compare. I would like to see more scholarship opportunities within my particular degree program (Interdisciplinary) however, overall I totally recommend this university to anyone in the area or who would like to attend online.

My experience at University of New Orleans was amazing! The campus is very diverse and friendly. I made friends with 6 people in an instant at my first orientation. Walking around on the grounds of the university made me feel like I was in a better environment. Advisors stay on top of you so you can be successful and majority of the classrooms are small, which will help you focus and not get distracted. The only thing that I would change or add as I would say, is to include a football team at the university, because I love football.
PROS
Campus is BEAUTIFUL!

Professors are very helpful.

Campus life is also very upbeat and helpful.

Excellent high rankings nationwide on academic programs.

Wonderful diversity of student backgrounds - come from all over the world. Lots of opportunities to learn from them 1st hand.

CONS
Very few athletic programs. No football. No frisbee. Would really like to see a reversal in this.

Also, Financial Aid services, though knowledgeable and helpful, are extremely slow.

No real help given to "what's the next step". A lot of assumptions made by the university that someone just automatically knows what to do next. Months wasted because of this.
