4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. OLLU is located on the West Side and is said to b the rougher part of town. The university police are very helpful and make me feel secure on campus. I feel like I don't live on the rougher side of town with them. There have been incidents dealing with drugs on campus but the police handled them swiftly and promptly.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The university had small class sizes so it was easier to be viewed as an individual rather than a number. It was also easier to establish a teacher-student relationship and get more help from professors. There was only a couple of professors I had a hard time working with because their teaching and grading styles were impractical. Courses were interesting and helpful to my degree.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career service center is very helpful. They specialize in researching internships and jobs and then provide that information for the students when asked. The campus employees encourage networking and have influenced students to be proactive in talking with alumni and recruiters.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms were convenient and clean. They are located near the campus making travel to and from classes easy. The only thing is that with how much they cost, one would expect a kitchen. There are no kitchens available in the dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I chose not to join Greek life therefore, I have very little information to what they've done or have been doing since my enrollment. They might be doing more than I know but I am unsure. The general view of Greek life in the school is that they take themselves too seriously. The school is too small to consider Greek life to be a big deal socially.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics community is very close-knit. A lot of the students attending are involved in athletics because of scholarship opportunities. Sports is recognized and appreciated but does not dominate campus life. Since Our Lady of the Lake prides itself in being a community, students come and show their support. Even athletes from other sports come to other sporting events to support their peers. Team performance, especially for the Women's teams, is spectacular. Both men and women won many conference titles and qualified for national competitions.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I loved the small-town, community feel. The university was welcoming with friendly, helpful staff, and plenty of useful programs and resources. I wish, however, that the program I am currently enrolled in wasn't so limited. I thought it was what I wanted and it ended up being very antiquated and not advanced enough to where I originally thought it was. Aside from that, my experience with the university has been very enjoyable.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: They constantly have free HIV and HEP B testing on campus and I really like that.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is very well known

2 College Junior

Greek Life: It feels as if I am back in high school and everyone is separated into groups rated on popularity.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I don't have that much experience with the athletics department.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is too expensive for what it offers and the staff and faculty in my major department could use some changing.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Te campus police is always around and alert, and their numbers are posted in the hallways of the dorms. The campus provides emails and group talks that provide the information for any service we may need in the case of an emergency, disturbances, theft and so forth.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes are a good amount so that students can connect with their professors. There are a few that do not help and are rude. There are a few courses that are required that do not pertain to some majors. Most of the searchers try or are actively involved in a student's career.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I cannot say that I am too familiar with all of the programs and centers that are available on campus. I know that they do try to keep close times with previous graduates. The centers that help with finding internships I hear are very great and helpful to people.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The resident assistants always provide activities for people living on campus. They do complain about their job a lot and do not enforce the rules too often. They are often the people breaking the rules. They are very organized most of the time as well.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They provide a lot of service opportunity for the community. There is not any hostility if you do not join Greek life. There are those times where they are very over dramatic and set a bad example for their groups.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics have a good fan base and support. The school has a pretty good level of school spirit. The facilities are open to all of the students on campus which is very benificial.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school and professors are extremely helpful. They are always trying to push you to do your best. They provide a lot of materials in order to help you with any difficulty. You are also able to connect with the professors more since the clasrroms are smaller.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus security is great when their around, but usually take a long time to respond to calls.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's okay if you get housed with someone you know, if not then you won't know the person you're roomed with and might hate it. Cost of housing is also overpriced for quality of dorms.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It cost too much money to be apart of Greek life on campus and too time consuming.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's great if your an athlete, if not then you won't get much recognition.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Tuition is expensive and gets raised to often. Financial aid is not enough to cover tuition after your first year.

When asked to describe the overall experience at Our Lady of the Lake University, most students say it is great. People really do like it here. Of course, there are a few individuals who have a negative opinion about everything on campus. They say they do not like the school because of the lack of diversity, the high cost of tuition, the bad quality of campus life, low value of classes, and a view that the policies are unreasonably strict. But, generally, students like the small class sizes and the other people here. However, some would prefer to be in a larger school surrounded by more people.
