3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally I do not participate in Greek Life and have not had much involvement with Greek Life. From a distance it seems to take up a lot of time, but people seem to really enjoy participating. I wouldn't treat a Greek student any differently being that I am a non-Greek. There seems to be limited Greek housing available.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: As far as I have observed, the athletics at The University of Louisiana at Lafayette bring people closer together. They don't call us Ragin Cajuns for nothing! There is definitely a high level of fan support and school spirit.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are friendly and they make sure that the students are understanding the material and enjoying learning about the different topics

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The university is pretty safe and the police depart does their job correctly and hosts seminars every semester to help students know different safety tips

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Although sports aren't usually my thing. I do find it enjoyable to go to the games and cheer on my school. The school spirit in the stands is like nothing I've ever experienced

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The university is full of friendly, helpful people and it makes college a lot better. There's a lot of school spirit during homecoming and my favorite part of the year is definitely lagniappe week!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I stay in the confrence center and it's okay its not so cheap, but also not expensive like others quality can be better and in need of total remodlation.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Makes it a bit more fun.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Haven't been here long enough to judge and explain.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Good school, but the cost of attendance is over the top

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It is a good school

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are relatively nice especially the newer ones, its convenient they are so close to everything you need on campus. There are college apartments on the edge of campus which are nice but more expensive than off campus and there is family house living for those with children which is pretty neat.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors were great in the classes I took. Like any teachers you had before- do good work, be polite, respect them and their course, ask questions, and always go to class, you will be just fine. A lot of teachers understand their courses are hard and at the end of the semesters they'll give generous curves and a large percentage of your grade will be showing up to class. That grade of showing up to class moved me a whole letter grade in two classes for A's. Classes can be anywhere from 8 (honors courses) or 250 (Biology courses) in size. There is a huge variety of courses, from Cajun studies to all the STEM courses, nursing to business, its incredible and relatively easy to obtain minors along with your major. For the price of the university, classes are amazing.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Engineering, especially for women, is always on the rise and UL I feel like prepares and gets the most out of your time there. The courses before engineering ones like math, physics, chemistry are not easy and you have to put in the work. That's where you will lose a lot of class mates who can't do those courses. Seek help, do you work, and always go to class and the professors will help you succeed.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus, but I'm not out at night very much. The edges of campus (especially near conference center and huger by Tulane street) can be a little sketchy in the dark with some crime reports over the semesters such as purse snatchings and assaults. The campus police are all Louisiana officers so that makes everyone feel more safe. There are also the blue emergency lights that you hit in case of emergency.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I wasn't involved in greek life, so I have no clue. I had a friend resign from her sorority because they weren't what she wanted. Too much about social media, looks, partying, trying to find a guy etc, when she was working her butt of to succeed in engineering. If it's for you-great-if its not-don't worry it is not huge on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I did not attend much athletic events, but they were always teams and sports winning every season and a lot of spirit around campus which is very neat to see and be a part of. Cajun tradition to wear red every Friday is really neat, and some professors will even give the whole class extra credit if everyone is in red!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year at University of Louisiana was better than I could've hoped for. The culture and life that surrounds campus and southern Louisiana can only be found there. The people are friendly, fun, caring, truly unique. Living on campus if you aren't from the area is a must because it makes you get involved, meet new people, and experience all UL has to offer- which is a lot. There are so many opportunities from interesting clubs/organizations, intermural sports, unique majors/minors, plays/shows, and great food served on campus. For the price, you get an incredible education if you apply yourself and get to live in one of the neatest and southern places in the US.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is nice, the teachers are smart. I like this school a lot

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My field is very competitive, but it helps that a lot of movies are made in Louisiana

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I don't really know much about it, I think its pretty good though.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I'm not currently living on campus, I live with my parents in town.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't really care for Greek life, its not my thing

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: UL isn't a huge SEC school, so the athletes aren't always the best, but it still has plenty of athletes. I'm glad that sports isn't a dominating factor at this school, but the school still does well in sports.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is a great school, I already dual enrolled there my senior year of high school, and I'm excited to transfer back there from LSU. I didn't like LSU as much because the people aren't as friendly, but UL is great
