Local Area: I feel that there are better places to live. Baton Rouge is a very small and "slow" city compare to others and living here my entire life i want to experience new people, places, and things.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Our school has two museums which feature a plethora of sculptures and framed art. There is always something to do on campus. Our student-ran organisations and clubs keep the school lively. We recently built a new recreation center which conveniently features a gym and two basketball courts. At Southern we take pride in our sports and athletes. Our football team is the current SWAC champion.
