In my opinion, no. While we do like to have fun, we have top programs such as nursing and computer science which take hard working and dedicated students.

That UL Lafayette students just are only interested in parties rather than academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Small classes, your teachers actually get to know you by name. I would like to change the sidewalks. They are terrible. Just right. If they go to LSU, then they just walk away. In WHarton. College town. plead the fifth. Electing the new President. Not for football. Our football team doesn't win. Too many to just pick one. St, Mary and rex street floods when it rain and no place for parking.

Describe the students at your school.

Not answering any of these.

What are the academics like at your school?

Yes. Parasatology. Depends what major. Not in my classes, they are to intraverted. Yes. yes. Histology. I don't really know much about nursing, but I have a prior degree in Biology so I could tell you anything about that. Yes. I don't know what they are. Jobless, more learning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a business major so i spend all my time in Moody or FG Mouton. I think UL needs more parking. It's such a hassle, but i don't think the school is too big or too small. It is a very fun college town. I don't think that there is that much college pride, but there is the people that are always supporting it.

Describe the students at your school.

Honestly, there are a lot of nerdy people at UL always studying. I've become one of them. Haha. Not too many cool kids i guess. I'd rather have nerdy nice people around me than cocky cool people anyway, so it's a very friendly atmosphere.

What are the academics like at your school?

In accounting, i definately have my favorite and my least favorite teacher. I can't stand an unorganized teacher, it's really hard for me to follow if they are unorganized. Usually the teachers that i like, like me back as well and remember me.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

The only group i am in is the accounting society. It is ok. Nothing spectacular, but it's ok. I study constantly. I don't really have time for anything else. I work 20 hours a week and then study all the rest of the time. I make sure that i go out almost every week. That might be more than normal people, but i need a social life. At school, I think so much, I don't really talk to people. The baseball games are fun and some of the football games, well usually just tailgating at the football games.

love my schoool. wouldnt rather be anywhere else.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

no to everything but partiers. most students can easily partake in nightlife

What are the academics like at your school?

some. public speaking is an amazing relationship-building class. history bores me. either not at all or constantly. class participation is somewhat common. not alot of intelligent conversation. very competitive students. public speaking, is again the most unique. department is very unorganized. no time with professors outside of class. i wish academic requirments were higher. learing for its own sake.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

greek life. sga is where my heart is. no doors open. athletics could use more of a draw and more spirit. guest speakers- nope. theatre-no school interest. dating scene-messy. came to ul with them. getting home from a bar.homecoming, footoball/baseball/basketball season, lagniappe week, greek week, film series, eyes wide open, ragin roar, midnight madness, elections. frequent partiers. greek life is very prestigious, worked and partied. probably nothing. volunteer and work.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

school- anyone can get in student- partiers, hicks, slackers

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am in the high school dual enrollment program so I haven't gotten to really experience UL as a whole. From my perspective, this program is the best thing about UL to me. It has really prepared me for going to college as a freshman in a way that no high school class or program could. I'm not anxious for college because this program has been such a great stepping stone.

What are the academics like at your school?

As I said before, I'm in the dual enrollment program. I am currently taking my 2nd class at UL. The professor of my first class, Math 105, knew who I was and that I was still in high school. I don't think my psychology teacher knows who I am or that I am in high school. In both classes, student participation was/is common. UL's academic requirements are just right in my opinion - high enough to be somewhat of a challenge and low enough to give people a chance.

Describe the students at your school.

Most students wear clothes that are comfortable, someone that dresses up for class and walks around in heels would not fit in (although there are some)

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

To some extent, a lot of us are from south Louisiana

What are the academics like at your school?

Yes, the nursing professors are really good about getting to know you. My favorite class is the EKG nursing elective, After every semester our clinical groups go out to eat together so we spend time with our clinical instructors outside of nursing

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

SGA probably is the most popular organization, Im in a sorority and its great when you are just starting college but as you mature and head toward graduation it becomes more time consuming, Im never awake at 2 am on tuesday EVER, last weekend I studied and hung out with my family, on Saturday you can go bowling or hand out with friends at a coffee shop or go to the movies

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Didn't know there were any, but I guess you can say country
