La Salle has professors who are very invested in a students education. Philadelphia is a great city to explore and have fun. Classes are easy to get into. Facilities are nice. Campus is not large and easy to get around. On campus townhomes for students are nice living area
This review is in reference to La Salle Universitat Ramon Llull. It is a nice school, with a clean and pretty, yet small or compact campus. The classrooms are nice, and there are many resources. If it were a public school, I would rate it highly, but it is private and you are paying for what you get. For the most part I have had good experiences with the teachers, and if you work hard, you are given all the tools to succeed. I will say the online campus leaves much to be desired and there is room for improvement there.
I have mixed emotions about LaSalle. On one hand the campus is very small which means you know a good handful of the student body that lives on campus. I think in order to really feel a[art of the school and make friends you have to join a sport or club. I was on the cheerleading team for 4 years and that is how i met some of my bestfriends and really got known/involved around the campus. I think some of the career resources can be better. The tutoring center will forever be my home if you ever need any type of help go there!!!! Also a lot of the professor's are very helpful even more then the career center in my opinion.
Overpriced, many worthless Liberal arts degrees. Not much student independence there due to being stuck in such a rough area. Its easy to stand out in such a small school and know your professors well. Academics are fairly easy, depending on your course of studies.

Knowing what I know now about college life, I would have handled high school very differently. I would have payed attention more and tried to apply myself. I did not do bad in high school but I feel as if I did not push myself as much as I should have. I played around and took the things that I was being taught for granted. For example, in high school I thought that Biology was very boring so I did not pay much attention. I payed for it once I came to college and took Microbiology. I had a very difficult time grasping the material because I did not understnad the basics of biology due to my lack of care for biology in high school. I did not do very bad in microbiology, but I know I could have done better if I had payd attention to the things I was taught in my highschool biology class.
The worst thing about the school is that it is a little on the pricey side. The school does provide a top notch education, but I get the feeling sometimes that I pay so much money and do not see it being put into the school properly. The food is on the poorer side, the dorms are not in abd shape, but could certainly be fixed up and some of the buildings are in need of renovations; nothing is broken or leaking, but just out dated.
The size and location of the school is probably the best thing. It is small enough that you can get to know everyone you want to know and classes are small, but you get to see a variety of different people throughout the days. The location is right near Center City, so there is always something to do off campus if you decide to take a trip into the city.

La Salle is close to Philadelphia, so there are plenty of places to go off and explore! Also, it is very diverse here and you meet a ton of new people!
The lack of ethnic diversity is definitly a frustrating thing about La Salle. I'm Hispanic and I grew up in a minority-dominated environment so it was a cultural shock to come to the predominately white population of La Salle. The socio-economic status is middle to upper class, which differs from my lifestyle. All in all, La Salle lacks diversity, and I think it hurts their image. Another frustrating element is the constant alcohol abuse. The majority of the students party with alcohol, which has comprimised the university's image within the community.
LaSalle has its faults but I do believe I am getting a quality education. The teachers care and classes are interesting.
Alot of the people are well rounded.
That the size of my school is perfect! It's big enough that I can get the classes I need WHEN I need them... but it's small enough that I can't walk 5 minutes without saying hello to someone I know (even if it's only by name or face).
Professors are really personable. Ofcourse you may run in to a few grumpy professors but alot of them are easy going.
No football...but I think the rest of the activities such a rugby and such are pretty big.
There is barely any diverity among Greek life either.
There are not many "stereotypes" at my school. Most of them are taken as jokes as with any other school so they are not always accurate.
A small school in a urban area.
Alot of people are really nice. SOME staff is another story,especially the security working in the dorms and people who work for student housing. One woman...her CA duties has gone completely to her head. She's very nasty to the students. She fails to realize that we pay her.Another misconception..Philadelphia is dangerous and there is nothing to do. Ive grew up in Philly so ofcourse I'll know where to go to have fun and that doesnt involve drinking etc. Fun like shopping,sight seeing, shows etc. People who arent from around here like to go to south street and think they have fufilled their Philadelphia experience. NOT TRUE. the danger thing, I'll be the first to say that Philadelphia as a whole is not dangerous but the campus sure is. The one block stretching from the church to the cafeteria is safe but you also have people coming up from the neighborhoods looking around etc. There has been many security alerts this year and LaSalle can do alot better with that. People have continuously been robbed until recently when they arrestted two people after some uproar. That is one of the main things I do not like. But I do walk around during the day and early night (on campus) and I feel safe majority of the time. I have not encountered any danger myself. Their dorms suck...that is true but there is also a few that are nice. I would suggest tearing them all down and rebulding but ofcourse they wont do that. Alot of my furniture has to be as old as the dorm I live in which was built in 56. I also have a curtain for a closet door which I think is strange. There are a few dorms that are fairly nice but they rate who gets them on a point system so better get straight A's if you want to have air conditioning in your room.
Alot of the Jersey kids are stuck up.
The campus is dangerous.
La Salle has a ton of law suits

North philly, you just have to be smart if you travel off campus.
