My opinion of ULM is great! The professors and even other students are quick to answer questions and help in any way they can. I appreciate how professional the faculty and staff behave; I find myself joining more and more groups on campus. There is always somewhere for anyone to fit in. I do not live on campus, but from what I have seen, they aren't the nicest accommodations. However, off campus is very nice. I have sincerely enjoyed my time so far at ULM!
I love the ULM. There are plenty of opportunities to participate in student groups. We are also well taken care of by the staff. It is like our own little family . The support that the students give to the football game is huge. Large crowds come every weekend to tailgate.
ULM is a quaint school situated in the heart of Monroe, right on Bayou DeSiard. This school is pretty small and most people here are either from Monroe or here for Pharmacy, but the campus is beautiful. The atmosphere is also nice because it’s not as busy as other campuses. It’s not a college I would recommend to someone if they weren’t a pharmacy major though.
It's a very good University. There are plenty of things going on to get involved and they have great scholarships as well. I like most of my professors and they have good advisers and programs. The food is pretty average and there is good accessibility to many resources off campus. Overall, it is a great school.

You know what you want out of life. All you have to do is keep that in mind. Keep your head up...
My classmates are very diverse.
The fact that the campus is not very active after class hours really hurts the social life of campus. Because there isn't really anything to do on campus after class except study, everyone usually go home or find something to do away from the campus.
I consider the bayou to be the best thing about my school. It is very beautiful and relaxing which makes it enjoyable to be on campus. The bayou makes the campus one of a kinda.
A student who is more interested in attending a college for fun and parties should not attend this school. This university offer many on campus activities; however, they make it very clear that we are there to learn, be responsible adults, and graduate. So anyone who has other intentions, would not enjoy this school.
I think the scenery is unique. Also, it feels like we are all one big family here. People are usually more than willing to help with any problem that may arise. This includes professors.
Someone who is interested in living on campus, very involved accademically, and likes the convenience of having most of everything (classes, bank option, gym) within walking distance.
ULM is a school most known for its Nursing program. It's a great program and students from all over the world come to participate in it.
I brag to my friends about how the College of Education in one of the best in the state of Louisiana.
What all majors and minors they offered.
The most frustrating thing is the mail system for on-campus housing. Mail cannot be received on weekends.
This is a smaller school with many locals. You get to know everyone!
The University of Louisiana-Monroe is more concerned with its athletic students and athletic accomplisments than it is with its academic students and their endeavours.
I believe ULM is an amazing school. There are many opportunities here. I think the small town vibe is great. It minimizes some of the distractions of being in a big city (New Orleans, Baton Rouge etc.). If I could change one thing I would change the separation of different groups of people. Most people that attend this school are from small cities and come in packs, people don't tend to get out of their comfort zone of friends. When I tell people I go to ULM, most ask why I would want to be so far away from home and in the "country". I tell them I wanted to move away and meet new people without being distracted from big venues. I spend most of my time on campus at the SUB. It is such a fun environment and there is ALWAYS something going on. The administration is overall very helpful and well educated. We all bleed maroon and gold because school is important here. I'll always remember my experience of Greek life. The most frequent complaints students have about campus is parking.Overall it is a wonderful campus to get an education.
Most teachers don't take the time to know your name unless you want them to know it. If you take the initiative to go to their office and ask questions and get help they will remember you. My favorite class so far has been College Algebra because I love the humor of my teacher and I like math. My least favorite was biology because I didn't apply myself as much as I should and it was a lot of information to learn. Class participation is usually a grade in every class taken on campus. I've engage in many intellectual conversations outside of the classroom, such as political issues, social downfalls, etc. My major is Psychology and I love it! All my classes have been enjoyable and the department heads and very informative and helpful. The academic requirements and reasonable, of course I don't fully agree with the attendance policy but I know it's in place for a reason. Education is geared towards getting a job and professors will help you figured out which job would be best for you.
The most popular organizationa are NPC and NPHC Greeks. I'm involved in NPHC Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. We are the last sorority to create "The Divine 9". We do community service on campus and off, and we are devoted to our education. Athletic events are important on campus. Basketball and football are the bigger of them. Alumni come and support and show school spirit all the time. The theater program is thriving and puts on many productions throughout the semester. Dating may seem difficult because the school is not that big. I met my closest friends by being randomly paired with them as my roommates and by being in my sorority. If I was awake at 2am on a Tuesday I would clean or study until I got sleepy unless one of my roommates were up to converse with me. Week of Welcome, Spring Fever, and probates are all events to look forward to each year. I think people party every weekend. There is always something to do because local clubs host college nights. Greek life is VERY important. Last weekend I went to a Kappa Alpha Psi party. Students love to go skating, bowling, or to the movies. I like to go the mall and go bowling off campus.
Classes vary in size, but t he smaller ones can be veyr personal in matter because you get more one on one interaction.
Rednecks, mama boys, smart kids
I decided to go to ULM because it was out of state but still close to home. Both of my parents attended the university so I was able to get alumni scholarships plus my out of state tuition wavered do to good grades and a good ACT score!
