3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The school is pretty in only some areas.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Not too much of a club goer. But there is a lot of things to do.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: New Orleans is a great city. However, there is not much around the school to do.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I say great because they diversity in interests, beliefs varies immensely. Sometimes, it can get a bit extreme. Not too long ago there was a Jewish protest at out amphitheatre and that became too intense for my taste and other fellow students.

4 College Junior

Academics: The workload can be very intense and stressful, but it is never boring or repetitive. Being an English major is probably one of the most fun majors to be besides an Art major. The professors are amazing. And if you are active in class, your professors recommend you to give readings at events and suggest you for on-campus job opportunities.

5 College Junior

Academics: The professors are awesome, funny and definitely love their jobs. I absolutely abhor American Literature. Last semester, because of a professor, I walked out loving it and having a wonderful appreciation for it. The professors definitely broaden your mind and help you to find something relatable in everything they teach.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is next to nothing to make you feel unsafe on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: There is Chic-fil-a, Popeyes, and Subway. And then there is a bar that offers some fried foods and pizza. It's okay. Nothing great.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There honestly isn't much variety by the school. You have to drive out five-ten miles to start getting interesting choices. Most of the choices are run-down fast food restaurants.

3 College Junior

Majors: UNO is pretty lenient as far as what major you wish to pursue. There are of course certain classes you need to take. UNO demands that their students have a lot of integrity.

4 College Junior

Majors: The professors and staff in the English department are the absolute best. The workload can be demanding but is also highly rewarded, so much is gained and learned from just one day's worth of classes.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: It's not so much of a big thing on campus so no one really pays all that much attention to it.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The Academic Policy and Honor Code is perhaps the strictest at UNO than anywhere else. It is no secret that graduates from UNO have a better chance at obtaining a job over a graduate from LSU, Tulane or Loyola. Even though those schools are a lot more expensive and harder to get into, UNO challenges students and ways other schools can't afford to. You don't pay for your grades at UNO, you have to earn them. And if you are caught cheating, that's pretty much it for you.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It is very hard to say how people generally are on campus. UNO is a very independent school not well known for the parties or college life. In effect, people just stick to themselves and everyone is on their own. If you need help, people will gladly come to your aid and do their best, but for the most part, its only you. It is not uncommon to see people by themselves rather than in a group of friends. Everyone at UNO has a variety of styles with varying majors and varying ethnic backgrounds. Cultures from all over the world are displayed at UNO.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Varies greatly from hot, rainy, and cold. But, overall ok

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: It depends. Pretty pricey for safe/convenient/near campus neigborhoods

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Most policies are for safety purposes so, it's ok

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Could be worse, at least it's bearable/edible

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: It could be worse but it's ok

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Mainly chain restaurants in the viccinity.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: So many festivals! Fun times everywhere!

3 Recent Alumnus

Computers: We just got wireless at the dorms, but internet connectivity can sometimes be spotty. There are usually tons of computers since there aren't many people staying late at campus, but sometimes people lock the labs too early, so you might have to ask someone to keep them open. The library closes early as well, so you should keep a laptop and printer in your room. You can only print 100 pages, and then it is $.05 per page, so unless you almost never print, always make sure to have a printer!

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: New Orleans is very warm and sunny all year round; even in the winter it only gets to around 40 degrees. However, it is extremely rainy, so one needs to keep an umbrealla handy at all times, and if you live in the dorms, a shoes off policy will do wonders in keeping your suites clean. We get the occasional tropical storm, but nothing big has occured ever since Katrina, so it is not usually a big worry.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Due to our status as a commuter school, sports aren't really a big part of the UNO community. Most people are trying to become professionals as fast as they can, so our athletes don't get as much attention as they want. Intramurals do well here though, since many people stay in the dorms for all 4 years and join a devoted group that plays every week.
