4 College Freshman

Facilities: Student life on campus is awesome, our community is small and you get to know everyone

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Its a really good school, could use some adjustments

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are always different clubs putting on group events for the students. With many parts of the campus being renovated, it gives more life to the campus and the students.

3 College Senior

Facilities: Our lady of the Lake University's campus is very nice. Has the feeling of going into the school of Harry Potter with its twisting staircases and secret passages around campus. It has a very calm and easygoing environment being by a lake and its wildlife. There are plenty of organizations to join and everyone is very welcoming in each. the athletic centers and student centers are mostly run by the students themselves so theres a comfortable feeling about everything on campus.

3 College Senior

Facilities: My schools program is very socially active. The small community really helps both students and faculty bond as a whole and are very welcoming to one another. the professors are very concerned with their students and help in anyway possible. I wouldn't change my school in anyway.

History
View all previous student authors

This University is very old, but campus is pretty and the buildings are castle-like. Overall, the students say the facilities are nice and convenient. Although there is only one small gym on campus, it is nice and has a large number of cardio machines for student use. However, the basketball court is relatively small.

The library on campus is new and very fancy. There is a 24-hour Cyber Café that has Macintosh computers that recently came in. The Cyber Café is attached to the campus convince store where Starbucks coffee is served. On the negative side, the main buildings do not have a central air.

Favorite Things To Do
Students can go see the free plays put on by the drama department, and they can attend any music session. Students also like to study, hang out with friends, or surf the web in the Metz computer lab.
