It is a state school that is fairly easy to get into with decent tuition costs. That is why I went to LSU. There are many good people who go to this school. I like being close to my family. However, LSU is a research school, so many of the professors in STEM are more interested in their research, instead of teaching. Also, because of the TOPS funding controversy in Louisiana, many students' main draw to LSU (the low tuition cost) is turning students away from going to the school.

I love my college and I'm glad that I chose it. The classes have been challenging, but not impossible and the professors seem to really care about students' success.

This school offers many events for students almost every day. There is never a day where nothing is going on, on campus because there are many clubs holding events. On campus food is very reasonably priced and many times the campus center is giving out free food especially breakfast which is pretty cool.
