4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I appreciate the smaller classroom sizes, I feel like it gives students the ability to really get to know our professors and vice versa. Our classes aren't short, but they aren't too long where people start getting tired of listening. There are many interesting courses offered and a wide variety of talented, committed professors. The classes aren't incredibly heavy on work loads, but they definitely aren't ones where you can goof off and still get a good grade.

Health & Safety: I never feel threatened or unsafe on campus. I've never heard of any violence happening whatsoever, especially none involving sexual assault.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love where I dorm. It isn't the best, there are definite faults, but overall I really enjoy living in Cottingham!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our athletic teams are decent, but I wouldn't say they are great. As far as the fan spirit and attendance, it's fair. Always room for improvement. However, the fans that do attend go all out! There is definitely tons of school pride in the people that truly care for Lousiana College!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely adore Louisiana College! Everything from the type of education, professors and peers, to the environment, and the atmosphere... It's all incredible and incredibly exciting and loving. I love that I can get a top-of-the-line education that is centered around Christ. There is always something fun going on to help get my mind off of my studying, even for a little while. The people are so friendly and inviting! The professors truly care about their students and want them to get the most out of their teaching; they really want them to learn. I have met some of my absolute favorite people at this school and I would never dream of leaving it.

Overall Experience: My value of a degree from Louisiana College would be an honor. In my opinion it's one of the best and hardest colleges in Louisiana. The teachers are very helpful in helping me with job interviews and future job options.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus because I am so close to all the activities going on around campus. The dorms could be a little better, but the campus is very old and I live in the oldest building. My dorm is in very good shape for how old it is.

Athletics: The sports and athletes at my school always support one another. I played softball at my school and the football, baseball, basketball and tennis teams came to every game and supported us from start to finish. We did the same for other sports. It is one of the best atmospheres.

The Louisiana College experience is definitely unique. The school stands out from other universities in the area, but before you apply, you should make sure LC fits your interests. The first thing you need to know is that LC is a Baptist college. The college is strict compared to most schools, and you should be prepared for the academic challenge, the small campus size, and the residence life atmosphere. And be sure to buckle your seatbelt for your first semester of classes! Transitioning from high school to college is always difficult, but making the leap to the high academic standards of LC can be tough. Talk to current students to figure out which professors you should take for your core classes. Some professors will give you an easy A, but others want to “refine you with fire,” to use some Baptist lingo. But don’t stress if you’re struggling: the professors are all on your side. Small class sizes give you a direct line of contact with your professor. If you’re still having trouble, get tutored.

The campus is also small enough to walk across in five or ten minutes. On the plus side, that makes it easy to get to class on time, and you won’t have to waste gas driving around. Also, if you make random friends in the caf or the game room, you’ll run into them again. But it’s not all flowers and sunshine. Students complain that there is nothing to do on campus, especially at night. For the most part, though, students find that activities planned by the Union Board, random room parties with friends, theater productions, sporting events, and (of course) studying will keep them busy.

Living on campus is definitely recommended to get the full LC experience. The students are welcoming and fun-loving. From the Tudor Hall rivalries to the Sunday afternoon football debates in EV to the Bible studies held in Cottingham’s White Parlor, residence life is varied and close-knit. Students who stick it out past their first semester make lifelong friends and memories at Louisiana College.
