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.

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!

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.
