What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you choose the school that is right for you or your child. Don't just accept one. And always have a 2nd school in mind just to be sure.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

The department is not very important to the overall school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It's all about what you (as a student) are comfortable with. That gut feeling that tells you it's right. Don't be afraid to be an individual, and not go to the school your friends did , or that ivory league top notch school. You have to take the chance to try new things and experiances.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Willing to work and be creative. Someone who is not afraid to find themself.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

We have a great research program, and have amazingly turned from a reginal tech collage to a credited 4 year compared to schools like Baylor. We have the second largest school in La, and we have a swamp right in the middle of campus.

Don't settle on a school because it will cost you the least-- you get what you pay for.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

The staff/administration is not very helpful. The classes that are necessary to complete my degree are not offered every semester and there are not many options for days/times of the classes I need, which makes it almost impossible to have a part-time job during the week (my classes are all over the place).

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There are not many options for class times and not many choices for classes within majors. Everyone on campus smokes and there is no where to sit outside to get away from it. The library computers are always full and the printing is always backed up.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I were counseling parents and/or students on the college experience, I would definitely tell them to do some research, and visit possible choice schools. I'd pick a school that includes more than one of my academic interests, in case of a decision to change majors; also, pick a school within your budget- though admittedly, some big "brand names" seem to earn you more status, especially when planning for graduate school, education, or physical sciences. In addition, consider the school's other activities- clubs, sports, etc. Diversity is key- college is all about expanding your horizons.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have knnown about all the opportunities for freshman, especially in engineering. It would have been nice if I had a better time my senior year of high school to prepare for college. A lot of things got messed up for me that weren't UL's fault; I just wish it were easier to fix up to where it would work better.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

An important factor in choosing the right college is the atmosphere. The way a campus makes you feel is important because you will spend most of your time there, using its resources and sharing with the other students there. Visiting a school you are considering is the best way to decide if it is right for you. Other good ideas in picking out a school include: Sitting in the classrooms, asking current students about the activities and work loads, knowing what the weather conditions are.

What's unique about your campus?

The atmosphere is beautiful! It has a lot of culture and it is really calming.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I was not sure of who I was before I came here, but once I was here, I found myself and am not afraid to be myself around anybody!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Parents and/or students need to be aware of the research efforts of the university for the field of study they are wanting to pursue in order to unmistakingly choose the correct university for the profession they are seeking. Once that has been done it is easier to make a proper judgement call on the correct university for him/her. Attening a college for it's party lifestyle is not an intelligent move for anyone seeking a professional degree. The college life experience is what each and every student chooses to make of it. Finding proper study groups and friends are essential to becoming a success in any college.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about ULL is the acceptance of the younger groups of people towards those who are older and have decide to attend college. There is a large amount of older people attending this college and it has not made a difference to the fresh high school graduates. I have made more friends and aquaintances of these younger groups than the older people that are closer to my age.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustarting thing about ULL is the attitude of some of the students towards the faculty and staff. I feel that some of the students are expecting a free ride like they tend to get from the teachers in high school. Whether it be for sports or just the expectation that college is supposed to e easy without studying or doing homework to complete the assignments and understand the material on their own.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice to parents and students would be to find the school that offers the most for the chosen major. For example, if majoring in psychology, look at the school's courses and choose the one that best fits the chosen field of psychology. A lot of colleges offer the basic courses, but some offer different types of courses that teach students more in their chosen major. Courses that give a deeper understanding in the field of study to help students choose the right path for their career or graduate school. To make the most of the college experience, I recommend getting involved. Students should join groups to help others in their environment and learn responsibilities for the future. They should also focus on school work to succeed in college with good grades. College work can be difficult at times, but if students put everyting into the learning process, they can do well with little problems.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The school does not offer many classes for the liberal arts majors. I have seen better psychology programs at other schools. My sister is majoring in anthropology, and it is very difficult for her to finish her anthropology classes, because they are not always offered. Some professors are more interested in their own research than teaching the students.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

It is cheaper than other schools, and it does offer a lot of events to socialize.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This university is really close to home.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Parents should allow thier children to choose whichever university they wish to attend. Students should take each and every opportunity to broaden their horizons and experience the 'college life', but be mindful of your choices at the same time.
