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.

My school gives plenty of opportunities for tutoring and studying. I don't ask for much in a school, but LSUS meets everything I'm looking for, and more.
