Party Scene: Partying is the only thing to do at La Salle and the parties aren't even particularly good. I honestly cannot find the draw in them, and I was a pretty big partier before I got to La Salle.

Academics: I feel like I unlearned a lot of the stuff I learned in high school. Most teachers will just make you type a bunch of papers and read out of the textbooks. Want to know how pointless these papers are? I wrote papers for juniors and seniors and managed to get above 90 on every one. These weren't papers I poured my heart and soul into either. These were "barely paying attention, eating lunch" papers. Even the term papers were like this. I spent two hours on my PoliSci paper and got the highest grade in the class. It was 10 pages. I'm not even a half decent writer, these professors just have such poor standards that they just put a number on whatever papers fall on their desks. Or they take forever to grade. During finals week, our history class got back papers we wrote three weeks into the semester because, by this professors own admission, SHE JUST FINISHED GRADING THEM!

Diversity: La Salle has a huge racism problem, especially present on Yik Yak and the school's Snapchat profile. One of my gay friends was called a "faggot" at a party, black students are frequently subjected to racial slurs and derision from other students.

Drug Safety: The only education I received at La Salle was about drugs. You want ecstasy? The guy across the hall from me sells it. DMT? One building over my friend. LSD? Townhouses buddy. Weed? I honestly have met very few people who have never sold pot or pot brownies before. Coke? Stop on by the "partiest" frat. Weird ass research chemicals and stuff that could probably kill you? Check the second floor of one of the north dorms. Alcohol? The liquor stores near here don't even card, and neither do the beer stores. Vyvanze? 1st floor Basils! Vicodin or other opioid painkillers? Hell, theres a hundred athletes getting some kind of surgery selling off their extra painkillers! Or hell, you can be one of those kids so hooked on benzodiazepenes that you get severe headaches when you try to stop (several of my friends). La Salle is a haven if you want to experiment with different drugs and learn how each one will destroy your life. I personally was made fun of frequently for quitting drinking because I was sick of VLad's and all that gross natty.

Overall Experience: La Salle is a terrible school that has permanently turned me off of college. Socially, this place is like high school 2.0. You get told on your graduation from high school that you're an adult now but when you get to La Salle everyone is an insecure, bratty child. No one takes anything seriously other than partying, and that would be fine but the parties also suck. La Salle is terrible academically. I have yet to take one single class even remotely related to my major and instead had to take a poli sci class taught by a woman who was running for congress and would just talk about her campaign all class. I had a history teacher who just read out of the textbook every class, then asked why I wasn't taking it seriously and was just playing games on my phone. I have had three good professors, the others all being terrible. This school is not worth 20000 a semester. This school is not worth $2 a semester. Avoid like the plague, there is no reason to go here. Go to ANY school. Go join the goddamn military. Just don't come here, it is terrible in every way. The only education I'm leaving La Salle with is one in drugs.

Overall Experience: A lot of professors and advisers tell me a degree from La Salle has a lot of worth. I have no confirmation of that as I have dropped out as a result of my terrible experience.

Health & Safety: A basketball player was accused of sexual assault last semester but because the girl was not a student NO ACTION WAS TAKEN! There are men and women actively taking advantage of drunk individuals in a sexual manner. No one takes sexual assault seriously at all. Even victims pretend it is not a big deal that they can't remember how they wound up waking up in a strangers bed.

Health & Safety: They take precautions and have programs like first year odyssey and mcshain building is always available but I feel it needs to be exposed more.

Overall Experience: Out of my five semesters at LaSalle, thus far i have only encounters two unfair and unruly teachers that played on their tenure benefits. Otherwise, every teacher is honest, laid-back and very open about what is expected. They are resourceful and make you feel like they care. Often times, i remain social with my teachers after a course because the student-professor relationship at lasalle is great!

Overall Experience: Haven't ventured much into this yet-could not give a valued comment

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Good for people who are already good at their sport- not friendly to those who are not as good.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The La Salle experience is an expensive one, but it's definitely a positive experience. The school does a great job of integratong different religions and cultures into our campus life. Though a Catholic based and rooted university- we have very secular programs, i.e., lgbt, daycare, sex/drug. They also offer a variety of extra curriculars that are all student based but widey recognized and respected, i.e., neo-african drums, step-team, sword fighting. If LaSalle has one thing, it is variety.

Greek Life: Most parties are thrown by Greeks. But aside from that, Greeks do a lot for the school including community service and fundraising.

Health & Safety: La Salle isn't in the greatest neighborhood but I feel relatively safe on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class sizes are relatively small, which allows you to have a closer relationship with your professors. Most professors are very helpful and understanding.

Campus Housing: I have no complaints about my housing experience, except that the building I am currently living in does not have air conditioning.

Overall Experience: I love my school and am very happy to have chosen it in my college search process. I am involved in several clubs already being that it is my second semester on campus. These clubs include the ASL club, Chapel Choir, NSSLHA, a member on the Project Appalachia trip to Harlan Kentucky, a JACE (junior "ACE" or tour guide on campus), and a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority. I also went on the EXPLORE 2015 retreat in the Fall orchestrated through our community service center. These opportunities have led me to meet so many new people and make great connections. My school also offers great outlets for studying such as Student Instructors or subject tutors that are very useful to ask for help when a nearby test is approaching. With great dining facilities, my university has healthy food choices and themed dinners for special occasions. Lastly, there is never a dull moment on campus because of all of its wonderful opportunities it has to offer. Several events are planned so the students never feel bored, and there is always something fun to do.
