1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am just glad that the year is over and I have moved my daugther to another college. As a Christian Mom, this was a financial mistake to attend, Many classes she was required to take for her major are of no use, and it is anything but a Christian atmosphere. I know there are good people on the campus and true Christians, but nothing like I thought it would be. Looking forward to a new year in a new place.

Health & Safety: The campus is secure it is very small so not much could really happen without people knowing about it.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is horrendous. Many students I know have to pay exorbitant rent, for low-quality housing. That said, most of the on campus housing is not much better. In the small town of Pineville, many student have to look into apartment complexes that are 30+ minutes away from the school.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many different cultures here at Louisiana College, various backgrounds that the students have come from. For example, I know a woman who grew up with a silver spoon, and a man who grew up living on the street. Political views are somewhat diverse, with many students being of the Republican (Conservative viewpoint) and few who are Democratic. There is a bias against homosexuality at this college. One may not be openly gay or lesbian, and will have to hide their sexuality for fear of expulsion. The are many foreign exchange students, from China, and South Korea, and other from African nations. All are very respectful people, although many do not stay due to financial reasons, as this college is very expensive.

Facilities: The campus at Louisiana College is great. Especially if students like to be in a small community. The school isn't to big nor to small and lets the students stay focused with there studies. Louisiana College also has a great student union (The Student Center) where any student can find tons of help for their preferred major. The students can also find a burger shack (The Grille), a coffee shop (Java City), post office, bookstore, nurse and the game room. This is the most popular place to hang out if living on campus.

The Louisiana College experience is definitely unique. The school stands out from other universities in the area, but before you apply, you should make sure LC fits your interests. The first thing you need to know is that LC is a Baptist college. The college is strict compared to most schools, and you should be prepared for the academic challenge, the small campus size, and the residence life atmosphere. And be sure to buckle your seatbelt for your first semester of classes! Transitioning from high school to college is always difficult, but making the leap to the high academic standards of LC can be tough. Talk to current students to figure out which professors you should take for your core classes. Some professors will give you an easy A, but others want to “refine you with fire,” to use some Baptist lingo. But don’t stress if you’re struggling: the professors are all on your side. Small class sizes give you a direct line of contact with your professor. If you’re still having trouble, get tutored.

The campus is also small enough to walk across in five or ten minutes. On the plus side, that makes it easy to get to class on time, and you won’t have to waste gas driving around. Also, if you make random friends in the caf or the game room, you’ll run into them again. But it’s not all flowers and sunshine. Students complain that there is nothing to do on campus, especially at night. For the most part, though, students find that activities planned by the Union Board, random room parties with friends, theater productions, sporting events, and (of course) studying will keep them busy.

Living on campus is definitely recommended to get the full LC experience. The students are welcoming and fun-loving. From the Tudor Hall rivalries to the Sunday afternoon football debates in EV to the Bible studies held in Cottingham’s White Parlor, residence life is varied and close-knit. Students who stick it out past their first semester make lifelong friends and memories at Louisiana College.
