My experience at Southeastern Louisiana University has been wonderful. They are always having active things to do around campus to keep the student body busy, for example they had a famers market today. Southeastern Louisiana University also has very friendly staff to make school more enjoyable. The professors are always willing to stay behind or meet up with students to help them if they are struggling. This is very helpful when you don't have time for weekly tutoring. Although I haven't gotten into any extracurricular activities like sororities I still have enough going on throughout the school to stay busy and I'm able to still have fun. The school itself is also wonderful and always being improved and added to. The only thing I would change about the school is adding more food places.

Overall my college experience here at SELU has been a good one. Although the chemistry programs here are not very good and are extremely difficult, most of the other programs and departments are well staffed and well taught. In the Athletic Training program things are unique and challenging. With the same teachers and classmates for both junior and senior year I can build relationships with all of them and in turn build a better learning environment. This has made my college experience much better. Also, being a part of the Baptist Collegiate Ministries here has played a huge role in creating a positive and uplifting experience for me so far.
