Local Area: Shreveport's has gotten A LOT better over the past decade, but it's still a way's away from being a hot spot..needs more of the typical attractions that one could find in a larger metropolitan area.

Guys & Girls: AVERAGE AVERAGE AVERAGE, don't expect to find your soul mate hear..people of nice enough, but nothing really special here.

3 College Junior

Diversity: So far as student body make up, consider this school a small sample taken from a much larger pool...its middle of the road...just be mindful that Louisiana is a Republican state, however.

2 College Junior

Campus Quality: I transferred from a much larger and robust school in southern Louisiana, so, in comparison, LSUS is pretty BLAND. JUST DULL..simply BORING. But, I suppose boring is safe :/

3 College Junior

Academics: It's easy to register for classes. You simply have to be advised first and then you can register for classes. The only complain I have (which could be a major issue for other nontraditional students such as myself) is that most classes I need are offered at the exact same time with little or no other options to register at different times. This can make it somewhat difficult for some to progress at a certain rate being that they're often forced to wait an entire semester to register for a required class that fits their schedule.

4 College Junior

Academics: I see job postings for accounting majors all the time so I'd say the field is in high demand. The workload isn't too difficult, just requires a lot of studying to know the things you need to know in order to succeed.

5 College Junior

Majors: You pretty much have to have an aptitude from average success and you can get in..even if you're a little behind in your math or reading comprehension, you can take remedial courses and get in.

4 College Junior

Majors: I love accounting- it took me about 3 major changes until I finally settled on it, but I'd say that if was a good decision. The accounting staff is hilarious in my opinion. Some of the professors are so dry, that it literally leaves you laughing out loud, but maybe that's just my odd sense of humor..seriously, I think they're hilarious.

4 College Junior

Administration: I've been there since 2011 and have no run-ins with the on-campus police, nor have I seen anyone else have any run-ins with them..LSU is a pretty laid back school. The most you could expect from the police so far as strict enforcement is parking tickets for not having a current parking decal... Some professors are strict about attendance and some could care less, so the overall attendance policy is pretty average.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most all students will require a cosigner..about 4 off-campus apartments located within 1 mile of the school..close to a Wal-Mart and the many shopping stores and restaurants on Youree Drive.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Only one set of apartments available for students..literally a minute away from campus..not at all traditional like dormitories elsewhere. Not non-traditional student (older, married, kids, etc.) friendly.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: I LOVE LSUS's financial aid office!! Just fill out your FAFSA properly and LSUS will do the rest!- If you qualify, your needs WILL be met. I just hate that refund checks are no longer available on the first day of classes..you have to wait 3.5 school weeks for them, which means you'll almost certainly have to buy your books on-campus with your financial aid credit balance if you do have extra income to buy them somewhere cheaper.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: NO ON-CAMPUS Greek housing, there are some around town. Nice selection of Panhellenic Chapters, missing a few members of the Divine Nine, and the ones that are on campus seem to come and go based on interest level (I assume).

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Plenty of restaurants on Youree Drive. Students can choose from a variety of different cuisines like American steakhouses, Greek and Lebanese, Italian, Asian, and many more!! Plus more and more restaurants are being added to Youree Drive all of the time, seems like.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to eat, but there are not student discounts and because of the location, the food tends to be quite expensive.

Health & Safety: Personal safety isn't really a big problem on campus, but the officers are there when you need them.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is not safe and it is way too expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There are a bunch of different buildings to go to and most of them are open to students at all times.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school is on a very busy part of town, so there are a variety of places to live but they tend to be a bit more expensive.
