3 College Junior

Party Scene: I dont party. My friends and i like to go to Hastings.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: In the cities of both Pineville and Alexandria there is really not much to do. If any Nightlife clubs a resident much be 21 years of age or older. But drinking is not permitted at the campus nor tolerated. The best bet a person has to go anywhere is Buffalo Wild Wings, Finnegan's Wake or Rag to Riches. Other then that a student can go to the movie theatres, bowling or out to eat.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Game Room – Game room is pretty much the only thing to do at night around campus

2 College Senior

Party Scene: We Need More Activities – Night life could really be improved. We have some organizations, gatherings, and events every so often, but the interest level is generally low. It is also hard for commuters to go to the events at night and it would be nice if more mandatory events could be scheduled earlier and more fun events scheduled more often. People generally have to carpool or go together somewhere off campus because the local area is not well diverse for fun activities.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

LC is definitely not a party school, and the party scene is essentially nonexistent on campus. Off-campus parties are not advertised at all. You have to ask around to find out about any social events. The football and baseball teams are a good place to start, as most parties are hosted by athletes. The few bars that the area has to offer are expensive but relatively close to campus. Make sure to get a designated driver if you plan to drink because the school does not provide a shuttle service.

If this sounds boring to you, you should probably look into a different school. If you're looking for a campus with a Christian environment, though, you’re in the right place. IHOP is the most popular nighttime hangout for most LC students. There, the most potent drink is a caffeinated beverage or a cup of hot coffee, and a "wild night" means talking and laughing with your friends until 4 in the morning. Even something as mundane as going to Wal-Mart can turn into a good time if you go after midnight with a group of friends. Thankfully, even though LC is strict in many regards, there is no campus curfew, so students can stay out as late (or early) as they want.

Bar ListingsWhat's This?

Spirits Food & Friends

Spirits is a restaurant and bar that features live music every Friday night. The wine and beer selection isn't the best and drinks are pricey, but the food is good.

1260 Texas Ave.

Alexandria

Unique Bar and Lounge

Unique is the area's only gay bar. It's not popular with students, and the pricey cover keeps most students away. Be sure to dress nice if you want to check it out.

3217 Industrial St.

Alexandria

(318) 448-0555

Finnegans Wake Pub

Finnegans is the best bar in Alexandria (which honestly doesn't say much). The atmosphere is a blend of Irish and Redneck. It's a little pricey for the average student, but live music and a good selection of beer make Finnegans worth a visit. Plus, if you wear a Finnegans shirt on Tuesdays, you'll get a free pint.

812 3rd St.

Alexandria

Frosty Factory Inc.

The Frosty Factory is the most popular hangout for students. The atmosphere is upbeat and fun, but be prepared to shell out for drinks.
