I am in the Honors Program and although it was an extremely hair pulling experience and rigorous program, I can say that my brain was challenged constantly and the Honors Triple truly made me think in a new and eye opening light that has immensely contributed to my academic growth.

My first year at La Salle was an interesting experience. I met new people from different places and cultures. I like the diversity at the school, because I was used to and exposed to a large diversity of students. La Salle has one of the best programs for my major, and has a high success rate for finding jobs post-graduation.
