4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There plenty of areas near the school that students can live. Some of them are even walking distance and there isn't too much worry of crime in the area either.

Party Scene: There aren't any parties on campus but the ones sponsored for the students are a lot of fun. There is dancing drinks and so many people that you may know. There is plenty of opportunity for students to go to parties because there is usually a shuttle so that students can get there. The cost of the parties range from five to ten dollars for an early ticket but can be from five to twenty five dollars at the door.

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places you can eat there. There many chain restaurants such as McDonald's and Wendy's there that are within walking distance. There is a pretty good variety of different restaurants around that deliver also.

Administration: The school is different from the average school because nothing is coed until you reach your junior year if you are a girl. However boy have coed dorms when they reach sophomore year. There are visitation hours from Thursday to Friday from six to eleven at night. Other than that there are no other visitation options. They are very weird about male family members coming into the building outside of those hours even fathers.

Scholarships: I have a scholarship with them now but as I stated earlier it is difficult to keep it because the money can be taken away so quickly. The school packs you with a heavy course load to start out then takes your money away based on how well you did. I understand the purpose because it prepares you for the future but it is harsh and stressful.

Campus Food: The cafeteria food starts out pretty good because its their first impression of you. However, after the first couple of months, the quality of the food starts to drop and it gets disgusting. The other options are pretty good and they are a great alternative to the many pork and beef choices the cafeteria gives you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing for the freshman dorms are okay. They could be worse but they are bearable. The school is very serious academically though. Your scholarship is based on your first year of school, which puts a lot of pressure on you. There is a lot of stress if you fall short because things look really bleak and it's hard to come back from it. The students there are generally friendly and the atmosphere of the school is relaxed.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing really depends on what the person wants. Choosing a certain spot can depend on how many people rooming together, how much they are willing to pay, availability, transportation, and how close it is to campus. Those are usually the main things students look for when choosing off-campus housing. Majority of students want housing that's close to campus, so those spots fill up real fast, especially if the cost is reasonable. It's harder to find places that offer 4 bedrooms. I think there are only 3 or 4 places that offer it in New Orleans. There are more places that offer it, but it's outside of New Orleans and a little bit farther away depending on the place. Choosing off-campus housing really just depends on individual needs and wants.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is somewhat convenient. There's not that many options for students to walk to if they don't have a car. There's a couple of fast food and Asian restaurants that are a good walking distance, like McDonald's, Checkers, Raising Canes, Burger King, and Popeyes. If you want any other fast food or food chain, you have to drive 10 minutes away from campus. None of them do student discounts and the cost is pretty reasonable. A good Chinese place is Chinese Kitchen that's down the street from campus that has good food, there's always a line for it.

Party Scene: Our school doesn't allow on-campus parties, so all of the parties are off-campus. The regular parties at Legacy and other spots are mostly filled with freshman, so not a lot of upperclassman go to them. Plus they're very expensive if you don't get the presales and buy them at the door. If you're a freshman, I would go to all the major parties that other freshman will be going to. Recently, a new popular spot called The Lounge opened up and has the best parties, especially around a holiday or special event. A lot of the upperclassman go to it and other people from other schools. Bourbon Street is always fun with the right people. Overall, all of the partying happens off campus.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Almost all of the administrative staff have attitude problems and can be rude at times. Very few are nice and willingly to help you out in certain situations. The staff at the front desks of the dorms are very strict with visitation and curfew hours and can easily write you up for not following the rules for them. For parking, your car will be booted within the next 30 minutes if you park in the parking lots without a parking permit. Sometimes you can get away with it.

Scholarships: As long as you turn in all the required documents, your financial aid should go pretty smooth for the most part. They don't offer much financial aid, so look forward to applying for loans if you don't have enough scholarships or money to cover your total costs. Once you lose your academic scholarship, you cannot ever get it back, so I would advise to keep your GPA no lower than a 3.2 or you will lose it for good.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There's only one dining hall and the best meal is breakfast during the week and brunch on the weekends. Lunch and dinner are the same every week. On the weekends, dinner is horrible. Dinner closes early at 7. The lunch period isn't that long and the lines are very long. The 50 golden nuggets or dollars are good to use at sub connection and jazzmines cafe. The food there is really good compared to the cafe food.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice and spacious especially for the upperclassman, the freshman dorms are the only ones close to the cafe/ student center, the housing process can be unfair to those who want single dorms, the cost can be a little high depending on the room you select, the washers and dryers for the upperclassman are convenient on each level except for the freshman housing, and the freshman dorms are separated and far away from the other dorms. The upperclassman dorms are far away from the buildings where majority of your classes will be located, and is a far walk.

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to eat for everyone to enjoy.

3 College Student

Administration: The administration adheres to the policies on campus. We are all adults and should obey the rule given.

3 College Student

Party Scene: I assume the party scene is great for the ones who want to party. I am going to school to get a college education. I would like to become a doctor.

3 College Student

Scholarships: I have received my award letter for Xavier University of Louisiana. The Pell grant was awesome but there are too many loans. I hope I am considered for many scholarships.

Off-Campus Dining: The locations close to the school are just okay but once you get to the tasty cajun food joints then you'll be fine.
