    The whole Lafayette scene is pretty good therapy for students who may get stressed out too easily. Otherwise, it's a notably diverse campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    Lafayette is a pretty laid-back town.. The University has some decent on-campus residencies. Some semesters will feel more like high school but don't get distracted. In the end, you are solely responsible for yourself. Enjoy the services you are paying for.

    Bang for the buck

    The residue of economic thought filters through every bureaucracy. Universities are no different from movie theaters in that they all just want your money.

    Am enjoying being here

    There are some characters at ULL and everyone appears mature. I've had a lot of good experiences and learning experiences.

    Am learning a lot

    Rarely I have had classes where I felt the relation between professor and class would lack.

    The good thing about UL is they have people who are willing to help with whatever problems you may have at your request, and usually free of charge. The Learning Center in Lee Hall (on Hebrard St, next to the Physics building) has free tutoring for almost every subject. And Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD, in the Conference Center - first floor) is available for students who may need learning accommodations such as a note taker, or a designated student who takes good notes for you to compare with your own. Stop by either office for more information

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are parking on campus (which usually means you must live on campus), be sure to get your parking permit asap. The office (on Hebrard St., across from Martin Hall and the post office) tends to have a LONG line, especially on dorm check-in days, so arrive a little before they open, if you can. Also, you may want to have a list of your classes printed and then walk around campus to each room you're in before the first day. This is to get a feel for campus, and so you can avoid a frantic search 3 minutes before the class starts!

    Students who like to get involved. There is an activity for everyone.

    Tips for prospective students

    I believe the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is the best bet for students in any field of study. When I was looking for a college during my high school years, I looked for the best programs in my state and ULL was at the top of the list. Being here one semester, I have found out a lot about the programs offered here. The Engineering program is one of the best in the nation. Many of the schools here have great programs in this field but ULL has surpassed many of them in graduates and competions in engineering. Also the Nursing program is highly reconized among fellow schools when it comes time for student to do there clinicals. If your an international student, UL is the right school for you. Over 100 countries are represented here on campus. International student are treated nicely and are welcomed. If you are looking for a college where you can be accepted for who you are and will find some where to fit in easily, ULL is for you

    Bang for the buck

    The cost for out of state student is CHEAP!!!! If your from out of state...I would advise you to look at this college for the cheap price. In state, it is still pretty good for us.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is beautiful. The staff is friendly in all aspects of the campus. Teacher to Custodians are friendly. The student activities are awesome. You get to participate in Mardi Gras and many college events.

    Am learning a lot

    The classes are very interesting. Many of the professors will expect more out of you only to make you a better student. the teachers will help you out alot if you participate and ask.

    UL Lafayette is a beautiful campus great for serious academics, social butterflies, Artist, Educators, People interested in Greek life, Communications, Pre-Med, Pre-Law, Athletes, and many more. If you are seeking diversity on a beautiful campus with a large array of things to do and see, you Ragin Cajun material.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take full advantage of all of the opportunities you have at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Know what tools are available to you. Worried about the cost of books? Follet's, a bookstore right by campus allows you to rent most of your books for the entire semester for a much lower price than purchasing. Pick a major that you will like and stick to it. Do not be afraid to ask for help because most of the people on campus are truly friendly and teachers are really understanding.

    Bang for the buck

    There are a lot of complaints about the slow rising of tuition and fees here and UL Lafayette, however, it is one of the less expensive schools in Louisiana. Paying a little over $7,000 dollars, I get to live on campus in an apartment with my two best friends, eat 12 meals a week (including weekends) in the Cafeteria, and with declining balance eat at any other food place on campus. Living in the dorms, you got nice facilities, a great room, and free access to Washers and Dryers. I also get to enter any of the UL Lafayette home sporting events for free as well as free transportation to and from such school sponsored events and south campus by bus during the day. A shuttle brings students to south campus as well as anywhere else on campus at night until 12 midnight . Being a Ragin Cajun also gains you entrance into the newly renovated recreation hall with pool and rock wall. I am given an Academic Advisor to assist me with scheduling and access to a wealth of information in our school library.

    Am enjoying being here

    Being from New Orleans and never even seeing or hearing about Lafayette, I thought I was going to be in the country. Lafayette may not be like New Orleans but it has a lot to do on and off campus. The Student Government Association, Resident Hall Association, and University Program Council all make sure we have enough to keep us entertained. Whether you like to show off your school spirit at a sporting event, study in a quiet location or in a group, work out or relax in a pool at the newly renovated gym, or dance like crazy while participating in a fun paint war, UL Lafayette has something for you. Want to join a sport or club? UL Lafayette has a large array of clubs and sports including intramural. If you cannot find a sport or club for you, its no problem because you can just make one! New clubs are added all the time. Volunteer or raise awareness? We have a large number volunteer opportunities and a lot of ways to bring attention to things you like. In to the nightlife? No problem. UL Lafayette is immediately down the street from the Friday night hang outs known as The Strip or The McKinley Strip and a short drive or walk from the Saturday hotspots downtown. You get the liveliness of a big city with the peace and quiet of a little country town. Whether your on campus or off, partying or not, there is something for you.

    Am learning a lot

    I absolutely love getting up for class, even those dreaded 8 o'clocks. I did change my major after my very first semester, and now that I am in a program that I love the work comes so easily. It does not feel like work to me most of the time. The teachers are helpful and supportive and the methods are thorough. I truly have no complaints when it comes to the educators in my college.

    Campus Safety

    There are security guards desk workers and RA's in our dorms 24/7. Police officers patrol outside and sometimes inside our dorms every night. If you feel threatened tell someone. If you See Something Say Something. Its also our responsibility to keep ourselves safe.

    Greek Life

    There are twenty-one Greek organizations on our campus. Plenty to choose from and find one that's just for you. You could be a Tri Delta, a Zeta Phi Beta an, Alpha Kappa Alpha, or may be you're a guy and would like to join Kappa Sigma, Sigma Nu, or even Omega Psi Phi. Its your decision.

    Clubs and Activities

    We have hundred of clubs, PLEASE do NOT get to ULL and do nothing. There is SOUL Camp, SOS staff, RHA, club sports ANYTHING. There is something for EVERYONE, more than one something. Make the most of your experience.

    Great for these types of students

    UL Lafayette is great for every type of student.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have plenty unusual traditions such as rave in the library, free pancakes at midnight, and chow-down at ten PM.

    Bang for the buck

    Have I mentioned that ULL is super affordable !

    What to do for fun

    There is always something to do on campus. Whether its something just bin your dorm, a football game (my favorite ), basketball game, any game really, a club meeting, forums, movie showings, fashion shows. stand -up comedy, karaoke nights, pancakes at midnight, raves in the library ( usually during exam week ) or bumping into your friends ( or a really cute guy ) in the Cafe ( what we students call the dining area ) trust me ULL is a blast !

    Food and Dining

    The food is great for the most part. A few tips for the future, 1- Don't blow through you declining balance ( Called DB and is used as money for food in various location around campus ) the first week use it moderately. 2- ALWAYS eat in the cafe Mondays for lunch, the red beans and rice is to die for. 3- ALWAYS stop by the cafe just to see whats on the menu, they may surprise you and have your favorite ( red beans.. or tacos ). 4- EAT the breakfast, the omelets are the bomb and a hearty breakfast is a great way to start your day. 5- try Zeus ( located by Legacy Apartments ) the food is great even if you don't know what some of it is, trust me.

    Dorm Life

    There is always emphasis on always someone to talk to, study with, borrow something from, or just hang out with in our dorms. Occasionally our RA's sponsor events where we play games, watch movies, eat, and enjoy each others company

    Academic Rigor

    ULL is definitely noted for its world-class scholars and excellent research. For example Dr. Quincy Hilliard ( Composer at UL Lafayette ) has written music for the Olympic Games! Our professors are outstanding.

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice for all incoming students is to get to know your professors because they want to know you and be there for you. Join organizations and get to know other students who share your pride. Be a proud RAGIN' CAJUN !

    In three sentences

    A ten out of ten. There is plenty of diversity as well as clubs and organizations. Ninety percent of the classes do not exceed forty and the professors love to interact with and get to know us by name. Attending the University of Louisiana-Lafayette is the utmost best decision I have and will ever make.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who don't want to become just a number. All of the classes have a good student to teacher ratio, so you'll always feel like you are known

    Tips for prospective students

    Schedule your classes as soon as possible and check back on availability frequently! People are constantly changing their classes around and you may be able to grab a class someone just dropped.

    Bang for the buck

    Due to state wide budget cuts, some classes are only offered in either the spring or the fall semester, not both like most colleges. This can be challenging when trying to schedule required courses since class numbers are typically small.

    Am enjoying being here

    Lafayette is home to me. The people are incredibly friendly and are always willing to help. UL portrays general disposition of the south extremely well.

    Am learning a lot

    As I am progressing further and further into my major I find I am learning a lot more. My professors challenge me to look into topics at a greater depth.

    Great for these types of students

    If you like smal towns where everything is nearby, the school isn't too large, and people are alright, and just want a degree from an easy university, then you may like this. UL accepts everybody.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't live at the Legacy, if you're into plays and orchestras, you should go b/c it's free and they are good performances. I recommend the 7 meals per week, just so you have about $400 to spend eating food outside the cafeteria. Everything is relatively easy so don't stress or expect to have too much fun.

    Bang for the buck

    Everything is worth the price except food and housing. Don't live at the legacy if you're not having a friend as a roommate because 9/10, you'll get an inconsiderate one. The dorms save you about $1000-$2000 a semester,compared to an apt. at 4000. It's a big save of money, but not a big save from sanity. I like the free activities though, like plays and orchestras.

    Am enjoying being here

    Not really. I lived 45 mins. from lafy before I came to UL, so I guess I'm bored of the town. Nightclubs stink and not a lot to do. It's a good mix of good and bad people. Not a lot of diversity, in color..if you know what i mean.

    Am learning a lot

    I'm a graphic design major. What I learn is good, but not great. Design and Drawing class are too basic. As an art student, I'm looking to gain more experience, despite my classification of being a freshman. Art supplies were a witch to buy :(

    Great for all sorts of students/majors.. the nursing program, from what I heard, is pretty tough though.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to fill out your FASFA on time each year as well as apply for work study. Ask about the special service department, they have lots of opportunities there.

    Bang for the buck

    This I believe depends on what type of financial aid/ grants you think you will be receiving each year.

    Did enjoy being here

    Absolutely, there are tons of activities that a student can do and clubs they can join on this campus.

    Did learn a lot

    I learned quite a lot from attending this school. The professors here ( from my experience) are very helpful.

    Great for these types of students

    Engineering students of all types, computer science, biology, or nursing students

    Tips for prospective students

    Join as many organizations as possible and take advantage of all the schools resources like the library, campus shuttle, recreation center, and computer labs. Also get to know your professors because many are willing to help you.

    Bang for the buck

    This school is considerably cheaper than most other schools I looked into attending. They also have smaller class sizes than other public colleges in the area and have some strong departments. As a whole the school is worth looking into because even with such a low tuition, there are many perks included with the price.

    Am enjoying being here

    The school has some downsides but these are overcome by the community. Faculty and staff are generally very personable and many truly care about their students. Outside the campus, there are lots of free events to attend and things to keep students occupied.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers can either underestimate the amount their students can learn or overestimate what their students already know. Many teachers assume that their students cannot understand anything but the few that do not really rely on other teachers already having explained what you are supposed to be learning.

    If you going to major in computer science (as am I), engineering, mathematics or any science related major then U.L. is a good choice.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you make a well informed decision about coming here.

    Bang for the buck

    As stated as previous, housing is expensive. Tuition can also be costly. The university to have some ridiculous charges that is unreasonable.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy it hear but it over 200 miles away from my home. There are some bad students at the university. The dorms are overpriced and any other places is most likely overpriced when compared to local apartments.

    Am learning a lot

    U.L. have several great professors and teacher that are truly dedicated to teaching students.

    ULL always has something on on campus and the football tailing gating is so much fun. I do recommend to join an organization to get more out of college than just studying! :)

    Am learning a lot

    I find a lot of teachers do really care about what you learn in their classes. I love all my teachers that I have taken because they do take time to make sure you understand the material that is being taught.

    What to do for fun

    Of course UL is known for its parties and drinking. So of course party and going to the keg and pub every Wednesday and Friday. Usually there is always something to do in the town or on campus so boredom is rare.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria food is very nasty to me. I usually like of burgers, fries , grills cheese, and icees. But the other dining places on campus are pretty good overly priced but good,

    Dorm Life

    The university is currently in the process of renovating the campus. So many of the dorms are only like a semester old which is very good compared to the dorm before. The dorm like style is great for it to be a dorm so i guess it would be okay for a college freshmen to experience

    Academic Rigor

    Stay on top of your studies and homework because once you fall behind there really is no such thing as catching up.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a tour of the campus. Talk to the dean of you r college. Dont be afraid of the university size you will get us to it

    In three sentences

    This university is a great experience for any individual looking forward to a great learning experience. The teachers truly care about you learning the information and not just memorizing skills to get through a class. The university is always advancing in various ways.

    Campus Safety

    I feel pretty secure here at UL. It is located in a nice area, where violence is pretty low. There is an on-campus police department, who is always a phone call away if help is needed. My roommate and I enjoy to go jogging at Gerard Park at night. The park is considered to be off-campus, but is so close that you would probably consider it to be on.

    Greek Life

    Greeks are definitely in the house. I am not sure how many chapters are active. They throw parties, have events on campus, and help charities. Greek life is a great way to get involved at the school.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are about 200 or more clubs here at UL. There are also many Greek brotherhoods and sisterhoods on campus. There is something for everyone here. I am not yet sure on everything that UL has to offer, but so far it has a lot to offer.

    Great for these types of students

    UL is great for the sociable student, or for someone who is coming out of his/her shell. If you like to party, you should enjoy it here at UL. It is also great for someone who is looking for an academic challenge that is not too hard.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is an on-campus swamp here. In the swamp, I've seen alligators, turtles, and fish. Don't worry, they can't get out. Lagniappe Day is a day in which ten thousand pounds of craw fish are boiled for students to enjoy and celebrate. UL is known to be the party school, so it is not uncommon to hear about a party around the area. In fact, the library has a rave during the week of finals.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition here is a bit expensive, but when other fees are added, it is a lot cheaper than many other universities here in Louisiana. I really feel that it is worth the amount that we pay.

    What to do for fun

    I go power walking/jogging in Girard park with my friends, and roommate. We also enjoy walking around campus, and visiting friends in their dorms. I hear that the library has a big party (inside), during the week of finals. UL also has many fun traditions such as Lagniappe Day, which is a day when ten thousand pounds of craw fish are boiled for the students to enjoy. Bourgeois Hall is also a place that we enjoy. There is a pool, gym, basketball court, and many other amenities at the facility for us to enjoy.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria has nice food. There are three dining areas on campus, the cafeteria, food court, and Cafe Fleur De Lis. The cafeteria provides many options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is a bar with the meal of the day, an international meal, burgers, fries, and pizza, and also a salad bar. If you're eating in, you can eat however many times you want to. The food court is located in the Conference Center, and has a Pizza Hut, Chik-Fil-A, and an Asian restaurant. It is a place to go and grab a quick bite to eat. Cafe Fleur De Lis is an on campus convenient store. You can buy food items there, or simple toiletry items, such as tissue. There is also a Quizznos there. They also make and sell Asian stir fry, burgers, and pizza. CDL is a nice place to hang out with friends, after a busy day at school.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in the on-campus dorms, in fact I am living in the on-campus apartments. I love it here. Of course it was a bummer that the beds are only twin, but I have my own room and bathroom here. There is also a kitchen, and living area. Even Though I prefer the apartment over a dorm, the dorms are not bad. They are actually newly renovated. Students have the choice of having a private dorm, or to bunk with a roomy. They are nice and comfy, and have better mattresses than the ones in the apartments.

    Academic Rigor

    I am a freshmen, completing my second semester at the University. I started over the past summer semester. Classes are not too bad. Some of the larger classes, such as Biology can be tough on a first time student. Most classes are taught lecture styled. The lecture styled, fast paced class is not really hard to me, because my high school basically taught us on the same style. However, I am aware that it can be a challenge for some students who are not use to it. I don't feel that it will be too hard for anyone. With some study time, and effort, you should make it through safely. The school does provide an academic challenge, but not one that is too hard for its students to not succeed in.

    Tips for prospective students

    Once enrolled, be sure to calculate how much you will have to pay per semester. Be sure to calculate how much financial aid and scholarship money you will earn, and deduct that from the total cost of your schooling. If a loan will be needed, be sure to apply for one asap. Don't be scared to ask people questions, when ever help is needed. Almost everyone will be willing to help you when you are in need. Be sure that the school has your intended major, before enrolling. Once here, don't be shy, make friends! But, do not get too caught up. Be sure to stay focused on your studies.

    In three sentences

    The University of Louisiana-Lafayette has a beautiful campus, and it is in fact the only university with an on-campus swamp. The university has so much of Louisiana's culture wrapped into it. The people at the school, as well as the city, are very welcoming.

    Highly dependent on major and which professors you take. Engineering and Nursing programs are pretty difficult.

    -Take advantage of online ratings for professors. You will never regret spending that extra minute while scheduling to find a good prof. -Schedule Early! -TEXTBOOKS... Spend time purchasing textbooks online. You will save hundreds. -Do what you can to stand out. Potential employers love this. Also, get good work experience outside of school.

    Campus Safety

    The University Police Department is absolutely phenomenal. They do everything in their power to make sure this campus is as safe as it needs to be. The police department is 24 hours and always has officers on duty to respond to anything. Also, on campus there are surveillance cameras in the dorms, in the parking towers, and emergency response poles that you can press at any moment and someone will come out immediately. UL-Lafayette definitely keeps the safety of their students as their number one priority.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many things to do for fun on campus, like joining a group or organization! If you want to get off campus for a little bit, there are great restaurants, a movie theater near by, a bowling alley, and so much more. Also, the campus has events planned all throughout the year that every student can attend!

    Food and Dining

    The food is absolutely delicious! There are a variety of different places to eat on campus to accommodate everyone. If you are a campus resident with meal plans, the cafeteria food is delicious and there is a variety to choose from each day!

    Campus Safety

    This campus is very safe. One if the safest schools I have been to. We have a police department on campus, an emergency alert sysem that goes to all students via email and text. We also have emergency poles everywhere around campus that are blue with a bright light on top so that if any student is in trouble anywhere around campus, they can go to the blue pole, push the big red button, and the campus police will be able to locate exactly where that person is and go to them right away.I feel very safe living as an on campus student here at University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

    Greek Life

    The Greek life here at UL is fantastic. There are a lot of different sororities and fraternities. They help out a lot with community service and social events around the school and they full of a lot of nice people.

    Clubs and Activities

    We have over 200 different clubs here at UL. We have religious clubs, art clubs, dance clubs, greek life, music clubs, language clubs, educational clubs, nature clubs, a club for the student body to come up with events and any other clubs and activities you could possibly think of. If we do not have the club you are looking for that is ok because if you get 9 other people together, you can start your own club!

    Great for these types of students

    ULL has everything for any type of students. We have religious events, musical events, a lot of great study opportunities, libraries, on campus jobs for the worker student. Here at UL Lafayette you will definately find your place.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

We also have Lagniappe week which is a very large crawfish festival where we boil over 10,000 punds of crawfish and give it out to all who come out to celebrate, for free!

    Bang for the buck

    Even though the dorm prices are a little high it is still worth the money. You get out a lot more than you put in at this school and because it is one of the cheapest schools in louisiana, they do not break your back when it comes time to pay your dues.

    What to do for fun

    Even though it is a small town surrounding University of Louisiana at Lafayette, there are still tons of fun things to do. From joining a club, to going to a community event or just hanging out with friends, the school provides lots of exciting things for you to do to take the stress off from your daily work load.

    The campus is very centrally located so there are multiple food options. A lot of fast food and sit down and a lot of nice local places, such as Twins Burgers.

    Dorm Life

    All of the dorms have been built within the past 2 years and are in great condition. They are very spacious and offer student life centers such as a gym and a full sized kitchen in the hall first floor.

    Academic Rigor

    They will challenge you here. I have multiple friends who are in their 5th year still trying to obtain their bachelors.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for scholarships for the school fast, the deadline is January 31st. Visit the campus and take a tour of your college. For example, I attended Fall Preview Day and met the Dean of the Liberal Arts College and that experience sold me on UL.

    In three sentences

    The campus is beautiful and centrally located in the heart of Lafayette, so there are many food and recreational activities close by. The scholarships offered are worth applying for and financial aid is a super easy process. The academic programs are very challenging and there are thousands of campus organizations!

    There is always an officer on duty and the police station is located on campus! Also the Blue Light system is in place here, so if you ever feel threatened just press the button!

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is huge here! If you are in a Frat or Sorority you can basically get into all the bars for free, just show your letters. The greeks are one big family and are so welcoming! I would check them out!

    Great for these types of students

    UL is so diverse that any one would feel like home here!

    Bang for the buck

    If you are from out of state like me, I highly suggest you look into UL! I'm paying less than I would if I had stayed instate!

    What to do for fun

    Downtown is a quick 5 minute drive from campus. There you will find multiple clubs and bars to go to along with shops and restaurants. If you don't have a car or just don't feel like driving the infamous Keg is located on McKinley, thats about a 5 minute walk from the dorms. They run specials all the time, so if I were you I would go follow them on Twitter! The Keg is UL's bar! There is a park right on campus which is super nice. The mall is about a 15 minute drive from campus. Lafayette hosts a bunch of festivals and activities throughout the year as well. Oh and don't forget about UL's sports teams! All events are free to UL students as long as you show your ID!

    Food and Dining

    So the cafeteria/dining hall food sucks right now. However they are rebuilding the Student Union which will be finished next semester, so fall 2014. The new Union is huge and looks gorgeous from the work I am seeing be done. Therefore I expect the food to get better once the staff is out of the make shift kitchen that they are using now. The dining hall is the only place your meal plan works on campus but you do have a decking balance (DB) which works at multiple food venues on campus. You can use your DB in the food court which has Pizza Hut ChikFilA and Sushi, the Coffee shop in the Library, Campus Grounds, and Zeus. Also there is another area to use your DB at which is located near the Legacy Apartments.

    Dorm Life

    First off let me just tell you how much I love my room! It feels like home and its very quaint. Now if you are a freshman I highly suggest you try and get placed in Huger or Baker which are the sophomore dorms. They are far less strict than the freshman dorms (Corona & Bonain). I have a friend in the freshman dorms and she has to scan her card 3 times to get into her room; I scan mine once (I live in Huger). All dorms come with a microwave a fridge but I recommend that you get your own fridge because the common one isn't that big. Also there is a full kitchen downstairs however I have yet to use it. Laundry is great; there's a ton of washers and dryers. They do have cleaning people but they don't come often so I would advise you to have some supplies for your own personal use.

    Academic Rigor

    My classes are a mix between lectures and more of your typical small class like you would see in High School. Now when I say lecture I don't mean a class of 500, the most I have ever had in a class is 100 which is actually a fairly nice size. The way the lecture halls are set up it doesn't feel as big as it sounds. I highly advise getting the book to all lecture classes even if it's not required. I know for me personally it's been super helpful since the lectures come straight from the book. I am an art major and if you are looking to use your creative mind, UL is the way to go! My first project challenged my ways of thinking but helped opened my creative mind. The professors in all my classes are super easy to contact and are willing to do anything to help their students. On campus there are multiple tutoring sessions available if needed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come on a visit! Don't be shy, I promise once you visit you will fall in love! They recently put bike lanes in along E. St. Mary so I would highly recommend investing in a bike, it will help you get to your classes much faster!

    In three sentences

    UL is amazing! The staff and people here are incredibly friendly as well as helpful! The campus seems large but you'd be surprised at how close it really is.

    Campus Safety

    It is good on campus, however, do not walk or ride your bike around the city of Lafayette really late at night. A UL student, Mickey Shunick, has just recently went missing and she's all over the news. So be very careful.

    Greek Life

    It's like a religion here. However, it is very small and close-knit. Unlike USC where the houses are mansions that sleep 250 people.

    Clubs and Activities

    It's pretty ok with clubs, but it still lacks some of the things that I would like such as a volleyball club.

    Great for these types of students

    Small-town people who don't want to leave home or be too far away from it. People who like Cajun culture.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Rex St. is like the 5th Avenue of UL. Every student of UL passes Rex St. at least once every single day. It is where the bus loading area is as well as the food court.

    Bang for the buck

    It's definitely cheap or an instate student. Where I grew up (Los Angeles), the in-state tuition alone was around $12,000. Here, it's like $2,000. The books are really expensive though, and a total waste of money. Rent or order online if you can.

    What to do for fun

    Play an intramural sport! This can be a lot of fun. I played volleyball, beach volleyball and tennis. Join an organization. This is a great way to meet friends. Go clubbing! Lafayette has the best nightlife in the state supposedly.

    Horrible. Just horrible. Such a waste of money because it is so expensive. But you can substitute the nasty cafeteria food with Chick-fil-a, Zeus, Pizza Hut, Quizinos, and Subway.

    Four new dorms have just been built this year, so if you would like to live on campus, you will have brand new facilities. I lived in Baker Hall the year that it opened and I loved it. You get a huge vanity mirror and sink, medicine cabinet with a side mirror, drawers, and then there's the toilet and the bathtub. The room comes with a bed, a desk, a drawer, and a closet. The commons area has a kitchenette with a mini fridge and microwave. Living in a dorm for nine months in extremely expensive, almost $10,000 at the highest. This is because if you live on campus, you have to have a meal plan, which costs thousands of dollars. The food sucks and you end up skipping so many meals.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics seem mediocre, they really do. I feel like if I attended Harvard or UCLA and took classes in which I got A's over here, I would fail the classes over there. It seems a bit mediocre, but all of the programs are accredited and I have had to study very hard for all of my classes. I can tell you right now, the biology and nursing are two of the most difficult curriculums at UL. In business, accounting seems to be the hardest for most people. I don't know about the others, but the ones I stated are Hell.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are commuting to campus, you can park your car at Cajun Field and take the bus to campus. If you would like to live on campus, you can; however, it is extremely expensive. If you live on campus you must have a meal plan, which the food sucks! The moment you get here, make sure you get involved! Join every club possible. It will really enrich your experience and make it easier to acclimate to your new life.

    In three sentences

    UL is small for me, but big for lots of other people. The school is somewhat diverse in population. The weather is hot and humid at first, then it gets cold, like really cold, and then it rains forever, and then it gets hot again. The academics are alright. It's not Harvard material, but the programs are accredited. The Greek life there is small, but thriving. Members are really into the whole idea.

    Bang for the buck

    I can not speak for the every degree, but I am told that ULL's Architecture and Design school is AMAZING. You pay much less than any other design school around the country and you learn much more than any other design school will teach you.

    What to do for fun

    There are many extracurricular sports taking place all year. There is also a brand new gym facility that offers swimming, archery, weights, and many more things to do.

    Food and Dining

    The food is AMAZING. You are in the heart of cajun country so you not only get home cooked food, sushi, Quiznos, pizza, sushi, etc., but there are many amazing places to eat off campus as well.

    Dorm Life

    The basic dorms are cold and not welcoming, but they also have apartment style living on campus which is much better. It is like living in a small condo.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you can get past the hot weather most of the year you will enjoy ULL and make many friends there.

    In three sentences

    ULL is an excellent college. It is a smaller college than most colleges. It is also in the heart of cajun country so it has that Louisiana cajun spirit to it.

    Great for these types of students

    Scholarship students! There are tons of resources you can take advantage of if you have the grades--the Honors Program, which is /fantastic/ and which I thoroughly recommend (the department head is a wonderful woman who will help you with anything you need), for instance.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    UL is the only campus in the US situated on a freshwater swamp. As such, the lake in the middle of campus has some very interesting sights and wildlife--it's definitely somewhere to check out.

    Food and Dining

    I'm a vegetarian, so there really isn't much that UL offers to suit my diet--what it does offer is great for most people, lots of well-cooked Cajun food--and the surrounding area doesn't do much better. They do offer vegetarian options in the meal plans, so I expect to eat in a lot, but if you have dietary restrictions, check on that first.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are brand-new, modern, and very cozy. They have a living space in the lobby where students can sit around, a television room and game room, and a laundry room right down the hall. The rooms themselves are not spacious but have the basic amenities, as well as a shared (you and one roommate, typically) bathroom and a small kitchen space. It's not home, but you won't have to share a bathroom with the whole floor, either.

    Academic Rigor

    It isn't an Ivy League school, and you shouldn't expect (thank goodness!) the same level of rigor, especially if you're a student on the academic high end of what they admit. But there doesn't seem to be a lot of leeway for students to slack off, either--many students I met during orientation were taking near the maximum number of credit hours, and we were definitely pushed to do as much as we comfortably could.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are a National Merit Semi-Finalist--not a finalist!--this school is definitely one to consider. They are an incredible value if you can rake in the scholarships from them, and if you're a scholarship student, the administration will do everything they can for you.

    In three sentences

    The grounds are remarkably unique and nice, and the weather is too, as long as it isn't raining. The campus is under renovation, so while the dorms have gotten bad marks in the past, they're brand-new and modern now, and the rest of the buildings are slated to be. It's not a very laid-back university--partying didn't seem to be as much on the agenda as studying and work.

    Cypress Lake, which is in middle of campus behind the student union. It is an alligator habitat!

    Attend any sports game, plenty of festivals always close by in the campus area.

    Excellent food options besides the cafeteria. Food options range from cajun, greek, to food trucks, they just are not too reasonably priced.

    Dorm Life

    A mojority of the dorms right now are under renovation.

    Academic Rigor

    The instructing staff besides Nursing is very helpful and encouraging for you to succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to work hard and give it your best and that still not be good enough in the Nursing department. Ull has one of the best Nursing programs in the country and it is very competitive and made difficult by instructors and entire department, they prepare you for failure.

    The quad is encircled by the Walk of Honor which is a path of bricks bearing the names of every graduate of the university. The campus features a swamp, Cypress Lake, which houses alligators, fish, birds and turtles. There is a tradition during the spring called swamp jump, which just as the name suggests is for anyone willing can jump in the swamp.

However, many professors at ULL are extremely helpful and take pride in what they teach, helping students enrich themselves in knowledge each day.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students will be exposed to a college that embraces the culture of southern Louisiana. Be open minded and rest assured that you will have a great time, all while getting an exceptional education.

    Food and Dining

    ULL currently has a contract with Sodexo and many students would agree that the food is not always the best. However, there are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores on and around campus just in case the cafeteria doesn't cut it. The campus is within walking distance of Downtown Lafayette as well as the culturally rich Oil Center so students have plenty of options if they opt out of the cafeteria meals every now and then.

    Dorm Life

    The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has newly renovated dorms as of the 2013-2014 school year and residence-life organizations go above and beyond to make sure that the freshmen who are required and other students who choose to stay in the dorms are well taken care of and have plenty of things to do.

    Academic Rigor

    The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is an Accredited University and as such provides a top notch academic experience for its students. For those who don't find their majors or course load challenging enough the wonderful Honor's Program is sure to satisfy that hunger.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest the prospective students get involved early! I regret not joining all of the clubs and networking right when I stepped on campus. Give yourself time to get grounded and then get out there. College is for networking and the time passes by so quickly. Get involved with all ULL has to offer!

    In three sentences

    The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has all of the perks of a large university without the isolation of one. Students come from far and wide and are welcomed by the friendly faculty and staff. The campus is always under physical and academic construction to ensure that everyone on campus has the best experience possible.

    Dorm Life

    It is very difficult to go from living with your parents to living in a building with many people. The dorms are pretty nice. Nicer than I would have thought.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prepare yourself better for the classes. It is very different than high school.

    Campus Safety

    Though at first glance campus safety may not be the best, it is actually pretty decent. University police is available whenever they are needed and the number is easily accessible on the back of your student ID. Many safety alert stations are available around campus as well if you are feeling unsafe. The only problem is that some areas could be more well lit.

    Clubs and Activities

    The amount of clubs and on campus activities leaves very little reason for a student not to be involved in one way or another. The clubs can be quite specific to your major or college or just for fun to help around the campus. There is truly something for everyone no matter what kind of person you are.

    Food and Dining

    The availability of food and dining options in quite good, but some of the food could be a little better.

    Dorm Life

    I am a student that does live on campus in one of the newer residence halls. I like the atmosphere and cleanliness of the dorms. Yet, it is bit overprotective being that we are college students. I know that it may be for our own safety, but the rules could be a little less strict. I do really like the effort that the hall directors put in to get the residents to interact and bond. The Residence Hall Association is also an important aspect of the dorm life that I love because every resident can be a part of it, and it is a wonderful opportunity to bond and make friends.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes are tough, as I would imagine any college class would be, but they do have an easy feel to them. Many classes give opportunities for bonus points or extra credit that could be achieve easily. Also, a few of the classes that are required are simple and require little effort thus boosting a student's GPA, but wasting time that could be used on valuable classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Though the campus may be big for some students or even small for others, it is quite manageable. The overwhelming amount of construction is a little bit much and is the biggest downfall. Otherwise don't be discouraged or anxious about the campus.

    In three sentences

    A construction zone at the present moment in time. A manageable campus with a majority of good teachers and classes. A fun place to live and meet new people with an ample amount of opportunities to be involved.

    The dorms are good, clean and its nice to be on campus where you have all your classes. The one thing I miss living on campus is that everything that I needed was right there.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved with at least one extracurricular thing, if its a club or a sorority or fraternity, or a sports team. It helps to get involved and meet new people and make new friends!
