I absolutely love college thus far. All of my professors are very encouraging and helpful. My college experience is unique in a way that this wonderful college has an Olympic weightlifting team that sent one of the lifters to Rio! I'm an Olympic weightlifter and my coach is doing everything in his training plan to make each lifter successful in not only thee sport but life a well. This college wants you to take your experiences and not just have fun and create memories but use them to obtain further success outside of the classroom out in the real world.

Everyone here is a baseball fan- you have to be! Not only do we have baseball we also have basketball that we all support. One unique sport that most colleges don't have is an Olympic weightlifting team, which I'm apart of. This team is supportive with each athlete and we host the Japanese team each year to train with us.

LSUS has been known as a hard school from many students. Mainly due to the fact that LSUS is more of a college to get prepared for the medical field, and the professors are there for help. My favorite experience at LSUS would have to be knowing the majority of the students because we all know each others' faces and all know the fact there is not just a few people that, us, students can rely on. Students can rely on each other to do study groups together, share each others' notes after class, encourage each other that they'll do great on tests, etc. What makes LSUS unique is the feeling of walking into your professors office hours' because I've noticed that the professors love to see their students get better and better throughout the semester, and will help out any student if they are confused about a topic either in class or in their office hours. I love chemistry and am taking the basic chemistry course this semester, and I'll visit his office hours whenever I'm confused on a topic. My professor knows I am trying to understand the lesson and knows I am finding ways to get better as a student. Last semester, my biology professor said she was impressed on my notes from the lessons about evolution and Pangea. If LSUS had a program for chemical engineering, then that would be fantastic because I'm actually considered of doing chemical engineer. Overall, for any student who is looking for a college to help prepare them for the medical field, then LSUS is the place because it is very challenging, has organizations that hospitals love to see, and will prepare them for a successful future.
