Most Helpful Review for University of New Orleans

  • Review by: Billal from Chalmette, LA

While many people believe that graduating from a bigger name school (ie Tulane, Loyola, LSU) means a better education, UNO is right on par. Many of my professors and instructors teach at Tulane and Loyola as well. I have been learning a good bit in my current classes, and I am very satisfied with the education I am receiving. And when you graduate and are applying, unless you are trying to get into a competitive work atmosphere (ie Law or Medical) a UNO degree holds just as much weight as anywhere else.

    The University of New Orleans offers a great environment for its students. It's location is one of the best assets it has, 17 minutes away from the good ole French Quarter and by lake Pontchartrain. Faculty and staff are helpful all the time.

    Be prepared to work hard since the computer science program is highly competitive. Do develop a support system of positive people to help you achieve your goals. Do not give in to pressures of being female in the male dominated computer science program.

    Very diverse, tolerant, interesting student population. The best professors at the lowest cost. Overall, an excellent education, even if the administration is more concerned about building athletics programs - for now.

    I went to a small high school, so I was used to close student-professor relationships-this is not what you get at UNO. In introductory classes it is unusual for teachers to know your name. Professors are hit and miss-I have had some great professors and some not so great.

    If you are looking to pursue anything other than an education,engineering, or liberal arts degree, I would not recommend it. As a science major, I have noticed that most of the teachers that teach the important sciences like biology and chemistry are not that great with actually teaching the students. Besides the science teachers, UNO is a very nice campus filled with positive people that really want to see you successful.

    We may not have the prestige of Tulane, but we have some awesome, well-known professors that are experts in their field (at least in my department), and are a pleasure to learn from. It's an absolute shame the school doesn't get more funding from donors or the state. They have some pretty cool things happening here.

    The University of New Orleans is perhaps the most economical university in Louisiana. Scholarships are awarded well, and tuition won't eat them all up. There is also a lot of school spirit around with the many activities constantly happening somewhere on campus at any given time.

    The University of New Orleans is a pretty good bargain for a great education, on campuses resources such as computer labs, tutoring centers, and structured reviews gives students here an opportunity to obtain that degree of higher learning. The University is here with you every step of the way throughout your career to help you achieve every goal possible, if it had to be rate on a 1-10 scale i'd give this place an 8.
