Off-Campus Dining: Mostly fast foods around the area and they do not offer student discounts

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The university is in the city if New Orleans in a middle class neighbor hood

2 College Senior

Facilities: Because of a natural disaster Hurricane Katrina the school is still trying to rebuild its self.

4 College Senior

Academics: Our internships are the best part of the curriculum because we get to apply what we leant to the field.

3 College Senior

Academics: The registered process is a headache because the system needs to be updated

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is really no problem with sexual assault in campus. The problem is the lack of light around the campus at night.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: The system needs to be updated.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Get your fafsa information in early, and when checking the status of your financial aid at the university make sure to go to the school. Don't call, because it will take a long time, and it can be a hassle for the most part. When you do go to the university make sure you go sooner than later. The line can be long if you wait for a later time to go, especially in the afternoon.

3 College Junior

Weather: The weather is very misleading here. One minute it's cold, the next it's hot, and then it will rain. You never really know what to expect especially the fall and winter months.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity on campus is pretty average. Being that we are an hbcu (historically black college), African-American is the most prominent of course. However, there are splashes of international backgrounds. Religion varies and acceptance of individuals is pretty even.

3 College Junior

Transportation: They have a shuttle that takes you to and from the living quarters to campus (it's free). In the past, the shuttle wouldn't make as many consistent trips, but now the shuttle does a lot more rounds for students.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are a lot of parties in the surrounding areas, but as far as the school is concerned , there are not very many. Transportation is pretty consistent if you don't have a car. But it's best to have a vehicle so that you can move around freely.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: There is not a lot of strictness at all. For the most part if you follow the rules, there is no real disturbances. As long as you are paying your fees for attending the university, they don't bother you at all.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: A lot of students partake in drug and alcohol abuse. It is not always visible, but it is being done. As far as peer pressure is concerned, people may ask you if you want to try, but they are in no way forceful. Policy enforcement is their, but usually non-existent if it is not seen, or smelt.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: This city is great for activities and cultural events. Their are a lot of festivals that take place (essence festival, french quarter festival, the jazz fest, just to name a few). Just like any city/town their are people who are nice and inviting, and people that are rude. This city, like meany others has a mixture of the two. But for the most part they are friendly.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety level on campus can be a lot better. Anyone can enter our apartments without question of who they are or why they are there. I haven't heard much about crime being on campus, but crime in the living quarters is often frequent. I feel pretty safe on campus, but as far as my living quarters is concerned,

2 College Junior

Facilities: Although at the moment it's pretty bad,things are starting to look up. They are re-building, trying to create a very student friendly campus. In the next few years it should make a great comeback for universities in this area.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I'm currently apart of the College of Education, Child Development and Family Studies program, and the instructors are great. They help mold you into becoming great future educators/counselors in this field. They are always reachable and they make time to see you when you have questions or a dilemma.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of fast food restaurants such as wendy's, burger king, mc donalds, waffle house, popeyes, churches chicken, just to name a few. As far as healthy eating is concerned, the only places that I can think of are subway and smoothie king. The cost is low to average. With the fast food restaurants (such as mc donalds) you could always order from the dollar menu. Being that my school is New Orleans, there are a lot of great places to eat out. Depending on what type of food your are having a taste for. They are known for their great down south cooking (lots of spices and flavor).

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I thought they were ok because I only had 1 roomate

1 College Sophomore

Weather: in new Orleans it goes from beaming hot sun to a storm in an instant

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of different fast food places so its not bad but I wish they had some mom and pop places

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: the food at southern university is not the best but definitely not the worst I've had

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: No type of party life on campus for the drug alcohol to be noticed.
