Colyn - 06/08/2024

Southern University of New Orleans has its upsides and its downfalls. For instance the dorm life is great but if you attend the university and don't stay on dorms, it is a hassle to go hangout with your friends that live on the dorms because the security guard won't let you in unless you actually stay there. This causes a lot of people who attend the university to try to sneak in and if everyone who attended the university had access to the dorms, it would at least give the students to hang out with their friends not just while in school. The education system is strong and everybody on campus acts like one big family. Oh, and the home cooked meals that are prepared in the cafeteria are always delicious to me!

Devonta - 04/18/2019

I love the campus. We have event and campus partys almost everday. There is so much to do when you have free time. Its the best choice in the city of new orleans. I love it there and will be a proud alumni when i walk across the stage. I would recommend every new orleans student to attend southern university at new orleans

Narkelia - 08/29/2018

Its okay. Not a college where yo can have fun because alot isn't offered and there really isnt much to do. its boring most of the time and the greek life is so fake. so fake. but other than that, just get your degree and go about your business. Is what it is.

Naya - 06/19/2018

This school is and okay school it is mostly big on business and criminal justice majors. This school is really not a fit for me the school doesn't have a football team or even a band . The education is good but the school spirit and sororities and fraternities is not there really that good.
