    The tuition costs are very affordable and because of simply just that it offers the lower income portion of the local population the chance to get ahead in life. The student population is diverse and the campus houses students from other parts of the country as well as students from entirely different countries.

    For what you pay in tuition and cost of books, the school fulfills its end of the bargain. The teachers themselves are usually top quality and the low cost of admission could be attributed to the fact that LSUA does not have a broad selection of degree programs. The only way LSUA lacks slightly is in the preparation for life after college as they only tend to focus on life in college however they do have a bi-annual job fair for graduating students.

    in my opinion LSUA is much cheaper than other universities. You have to come see the school for yourself , so you can realize how great it is. I wasn't coming her at first. This school could not have been further from my mind just because of some things I heard, but I had to see if for myself. none of it was true though. this is a great school
