University of New Orleans Reviews
Although it doesn't have the fancy bells and whistles, UNO gets the job done for an amazing price. The upper level classes improve the academic element of this school dramatically, as it becomes more intriguing, personal, and challenging. This is particularly a great school for nontypical college populations (working, part time, parent, 2nd degree or masters, older than 18-23 yo, etc) and located in a vibrant city of course!
The University of New Orleans is a great school! All of the faculty and staff are very helpful and lend a helping hand at any giving moment. The university's resources are extremely helpful and convenient. The library is open 24 hours for students, which is a huge help, especially during finals. The campus is always clean and the food there is great also. I love UNO & I would encourage anyone who ask me about college to go to UNO. I would recommend UNO to anyone and everyone, always! UNO PROUD! Go Privateers!
Ive been at UNO since 2014. I can say it's a run down school with crappy dorms, food, classes, and administration. I only went here because I lacked any other options for what I needed. The University's bureaucracy will send you running in circles as different departments fail to communicate, lead, or work together. The pleasantries of this school are surface level. Film school and engineering are decent, but if you don't have those don't bother. They have night classes available which works because a lot of the students here are middle aged workers trying to get another degree. But if you're fresh out of high school, I'd only advise coming here if you lack other options. I say this because you'll be forced to deal with a school that drags its feet on things that matter and doesn't really care about its student's wants or needs.
