I have had an amazing experience attending the University of Lafayette Louisiana for my entire college career. The campus is beautiful and vibrant, and I have felt completely at home here. The faculty and staff are incredibly friendly and supportive, and the academic resources available to students are top-notch. I am also really impressed by the diversity of the student body and the wide range of extracurricular activities available. I am very excited to continue my education at this university and look forward to many more wonderful years here. I have had some of the best experiences of my life at the University of Lafayette Louisiana. I have made long-lasting friendships, gained invaluable knowledge, and learned how to be an independent thinker. It has provided me with the opportunity to explore my interests and develop new skills while pushing me to reach my highest potential. I have been able to explore different perspectives and make connections between ideas that I might never have made before. I am grateful for the opportunity to attend this university, as it has changed my life in so many ways. The professors and staff have been incredibly supportive, and the leadership and community in this small town have been amazing. I am so proud to have been part of this university and to have had the opportunity to grow and develop during my time here.
I'm from a small town in Louisiana where everyone knows everybody. It was hard for me to leave home. ULL was a place that welcomed me with open arms and helped me to become the person I am today. It genuinely feels like home. The amazing mix of culture from all of our students backgrounds helped me to meet new people and understand other people's way of life. MY opinion of ULL would be that it becomes a piece of your heart and the people become family. You get the chance to learn new information while also learning who you are.
I personally think that University of Louisiana at Lafayette is an amazing school. I feel like the school was meant for me to attend it. I also like that the school is very diverse, and I would love to be able to attend this school in Fall 2017. When I get accepted, I ca not wait till I am able to walk the campus and join extra-curricular activities.
I have been at University of Louisiana at Lafayette in the past few years, and I go every now and then to study in the library and I am returning in the fall. There are a lot of helpful resources, food restaurants. I don't like all the extra buildings that are being added onto the campus that keep raising the cost of our tuition. The administration isn't always friendly and patient in my major's department, but students are pretty helpful and share information. There are a lot of food places and the University bus helps a lot with transportation. I also enjoy going to the gym and their swimming pool is great for exercise and relaxation. The cafeteria food is great and we have a variety of different choices, but in my opinion it is expensive and also the parking! This university is one of the cheapest in our nation, which is why I chose it since it is budget friendly and so close to home. There are special buttons that you can press to call for help if you feel unsafe. There are a lot of freebies and events that encourage students to get involved, and I enjoy going to the Christian organization ministries in between classes. If I had to rate UL I would give it about a 3.8 out of 5 stars.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of Louisiana at Lafayette is 51%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would advise myself to take a year off in between high school and college to travel, work, volunteer and really explore what I liked and wanted to do. I would tell myself to read as much as possible and to talk to people in different professions to discover what career would really fit me best. I would also warn myself that the transition would be hard, that their would be a lot of new people and to take care of myself and get involved in order to make new friends.
Most of my classmates are lazy, inconsiderate, impolite, rude people; but, there are a small amount of students who are kind, couetuous, polite and nice.
i don't think there are any
Not at all,UL courses are just as hard
I think the size of ULL is just right. I would change the fact that the school is not supported fully by the community. Too much support goes to LSU. There is definitely a lack of school pride on campus and off campus.
I have some professors that know my name but not all, which is completely expected. My favorite class was Theatre 300, it wasn't just about lecture. We had lots of physical learning activities which I think is great! Least favorite classes are the big auditorium lecture classes. Too hard to stay focused in those classes. I think the College of Education is GREAT! The workers in the office are fantastic and always willing to help in any way. Education does a great job on focusing toward getting knowledge provided to students for future jobs.
School Spirit and how friendly everyone is.
Lafayette has an awesome social scene. Greek is the way to go!!
My school is big, but provides a good environment.
On campus the school has a swamp with live alligators and wildlife. There are also many stores and companies across the street that offer many job opportunities to the students to help pay for tuition.
The swamp on campus.
I knew everything that I needed to know
The lack of a student ramp park for BMX bikes and skateboards. There are lots of students who BMX and skateboard on campus that would like a free student facility to practice their sport.
That it is a place where i feel like a part of something. that its not too big, not too small, you get a since of community and belonging here. it feels like home. but better.
The parking is very frustrating. When you need to drive to class, there is never enough available parking spots for the amount of students that attend the university.
A person who is commited to learning and determined to finish their schooling, get a degree and find a job that they will always love
A person who wants to focus solely on their education and getting a perfect score on each test or exam shouldn'r attend this school. Also someone who is not very social should not attend this school and who doesn't like big crowds.
Asian-American, second-generation but Americanized by the Millennial standards, I am currently a first-year student at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Originally, I attended the Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, but found that the culture was too big for a hometown girl, such as myself. I’m learning the ways of what it is like to become a human adult-child, though I’d prefer to trade places with a house cat some days. When I’m not plotting blueprints in my mind, I’m pondering about who I am and where I am going and how I can inspire those around me to inspire some sort of goodness in their day.
I want to be in a position where I am capable and able to say that I can help someone, be it through charity or simply tipping at the local cafe. I’d like to have my own line of toys one day. One day, it’d be great to give back to children in unfortunate or lesser circumstances, and to provide a safe and encouraging environment that challenges their mind and body. Design is inherent in life; it can make artists or mercenaries out of the ordinary.
Many people on campus are laid-back, and interested in the city's culture. There are some enthusiastic students with major school spirit. ULL is often the underdog compared to LSU. Coming from LSU my first semester, I appreciate ULL's atmosphere more. There was too much tiger dick at LSU. I swear, any I turn it's like LSU propaganda clothes the campus.
Better than LSU. It looks like it's been cooked in a kitchen rather than reheated.
