Health & Safety: I really enjoy being on LSU's campus. It's welcoming.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Appointments at the health center are easy to make. A student sometimes is even able to get an appointment the day that they call if a doctor is available. On the other hand, students are also able to walk in and make an appointment. It is located on campus, and the workers and staff are really helpful.

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options are very convenient and close to campus. They have a variety of places near all of the apartments that offer food that college students are able to afford. The selections are great and the restaurants do offer healthier choices. Some of the restaurants are a good hangout place to watch football games, basketball games, etc. Overall, the selection if phenomenal and a student will always be able to find a place to sit down and eat.

Drug Safety: Most students drink. But I have never been pressured to do anything I wouldn't want to do. If you want to just drink cokes or Dr Pepper, etc. nobody will give you a hard time.

Transportation: We have buses that run throughout the day and also into the night. This is very helpful. Also at night you can call campus transit to get a ride from one building to another on campus. This is safer than walking at night.

Academics: There are many internship and job opportunities in Chemical Engineering. The curriculum covers what we need to know when we graduate. The workload is neverending and crushes your spirit. The exams are so hard and you never really know what to study. We just work problems like crazy and hope for the best. It will be worth it when we finish if we survive this crucible and torture.

Majors: So far the biology program is boring and confusing, mostly because the people who teaching it doesn't teach it well enough for us students to understand or enjoy it. I definitely wouldn't do it again,I'm just pushing toward doing better than I did before, no time to look back. My carrier goals is the go to pharmacy or med school. I either want to become a pharmacist or an obstetrician/gynecologist. I know for sure with either one of these careers I have a high possibility of finding a job easily.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life seem like the best life ever. They enjoy what they do and they have soo much fun. They housing is a very comfortable environment. Everybody wants to be in Greek.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Sure, LSU students gripe about everything from parking to the weather to questions about academics and more, but rarely will you meet a student who will actually tell you they wish they had gone somewhere else. The overall experience of LSU outweighs any factor students could imagine. There is an overwhelming sense of pride and allegiance to the University that unites all LSU students. The phrase, "I bleed purple and gold," holds more true than anyone could imagine.

LSU is all about experiences. It's the experiences of community, whether it be through football games, nightlife, more academic organizations, or through living on campus. Students appreciate the fact that they are at something far bigger than themselves. The size of the University presents students with opportunities to do so much from getting involved academically to finding a boyfriend or girlfriend. It's about the experiences of involvement, from joining a frat to working on campus to not doing anything at all. LSU seems to offer anything any student could imagine. The experience of going to LSU is so unique and exciting, students cannot even fathom what it would be like to have gone somewhere else.
