3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is usually okay around the campus. There are some days where we would have snow, heavy rains, and 70 degree weather in the same week.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I personally would not know what the nightlife on the campus would be like. I, personally, do no attend any of the college's social gatherings or parties.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Being a college sophomore and living on campus has been very difficult to become accustomed to. There always seems to be maintenance problems with the dormitories, there are a lot of noise complaints of people talking/screaming loudly while students are trying to sleep, the majority of the security guards are always sitting at their desks and do not make sure that the perimeters of the campus are secured. There are several others factors that the majority of the students, as well as I, have complaints about.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Our college institution gains more and more students every year. With that being stated, the classrooms, dormitories, and the overall activity around the campus has become heavily populated and over crowded. Also, the security, organizations, and the attentiveness of the college's faculty and leadership are not catering to the student's needs.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: From my personal understanding, people have the God given right to chose whatever he/she desires to do. The reality of the situations dealing with drug/alcohol/substance abuse is that those are being justified as okay by the media and entertainment. Why create laws prohibiting alcohol/substance abuse when the media spends billions of dollars advertising it?

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life isn't anything special. They don't have any greek housing or anything.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: They help you find a job after graduation and also help prepare and write your resume and very helpful in the class room and make sure you understand what is going on before the next lessons

4 College Senior

Diversity: The dsiversity at Lemonye Owen College is excellent. Even with the diversity we all get along very well. The diversities make it easier to communicate with the outside world when dealing with the public. I really appreciate the diversity amongst our teachers, faculties, and students.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The city that my school is located in is a very diverse city. It displayes all origins and ethnicities. Everyone is freindly and doesn't mind giving a helping hand.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: I'm in the excelerated program at Lemonye Owen College and I enjoy the nightlife at my school. Everyone embraces each other. The faculty and staff are very friendly. They don't mind helping each other and they try to maintain a positive atmosphere for each individual.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are apartments across the street from the school. The catch is that even though the apartments are great and convenient, they have a waiting list that's very long. They have other apartments in the area, but If you are looking for any type of quality then be prepared to pay.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms at LeMoyne-Owen are just ok. They aren't too spectacular and they aren't too poor. They're convenient and accommodating, but that's about it. The new dorms will be better though. With a whole new design and building, giving the college more of a college look.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: LeMoyne-Owen has about 3 local groceries that are walking distance. They have the best food and are very convenient. Also, there is a Church's Chicken in the area and a Golden China (a Chinese Restaurant) with the best Chinese food. If you want to cook for yourself it's a Walgreens, Family Dollar, and a Save-A-Lot for your convenience that has what you need to make a nice meal.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Memphis is a nice city to visit or stay and knowing the right people will get anyone far. Memphis has a host of amazing schools for those that ranges from average to amazing in academics. Memphis also has a host of attractions including Beale Street, Civil Rights Museum, and Graceland, just to name a few. The city is great if you're ready to enjoy life.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There's some activities to do while on campus sometimes but it's a little difficult trying to get the students involved but it's good to me because I actually get involved

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diverse is great because even though it's an HBCU there's still diversity within the African-American students. We have students that are black that came from other countries such as the Bahamas, Africa, etc. Now we have Caucasian or white students that's attending our school now and it's good to see some diversity because that's what I'm used to back at home.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There's really not that much parking space to where people have to park on the side of the road and people ended up getting parking tickets that they didn't expect to receive. But some of the other students can't see it because they live on campus.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: It is a great college to attend. the diversity is mostly african american students and teachers

4 College Junior

Majors: I am happy with the biology program at The Lemoyne Owen College. It is very challenging, on the other hand it can be done. I would do it all over again just so I can fly right through the program without any problems. My career goal is to become a Pediatric Nurse.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: LeMoyne-Owen is a HBC school. We have mostly African Americans that attend the college. I have seen many different religions like Muslims, Christians, Catholic, and more. It is very easy to get along with my peers on campus.The acceptance rates are scorching high, it is almost impossible to not get accepted into LOC.
