Am learning a lot
Although some of my classes are difficult, they are very insightful and I enjoy attending the classes. It's one thing when you dread going to a class, but its another when you actually want to attend the class.
Am enjoying being here
The whole place it great. The landscaping is nice and you're given enough time to do things you couldn't normally do in high school. They also have a lot of days where they give away free items.
Bang for the buck
I'm getting money back. For me to have 30 hours, its costing roughly around $5,000 a year, whereas, if I was attending the same university as one of my friends, it would probably be costing me close to $20,000.
Tips for prospective students
This is a great school. If you want to dorm life, it might be a tad bit different. They have a apartments you can live on. There are other apartments nearby. If you do injure yourself, the hospital is right next door. Its an awesome school.
Great for these types of students
People who just want to be themselves. You could go into a classroom and befriend someone who normally you wouldn't associate with in high school. Everyone gets along with one another and there's rarely any judgement. So, people who are very sociable and enjoy fun would like it also.

This is a great school for you students who want to spend less money. The tuition for each semester ranges from $2,000-3200. Which is fairly cheap. It is a school BIG on academics so that can be a plus for some students.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you keep up with everything and study, this school is not one of the easier ones in Louisiana.
Academic Rigor
I don't have the best grades, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. It is way easier to focus here than at Louisiana Tech. I went there for a short while and personally, I enjoy LSUS more.
Dorm Life
We don't have dorms. We have on campus apartments. I've been told they are decent but very small.
Food and Dining
The food isn't bad, but we need more variety. We have no Restaurants. Just food that the work study students make.
What to do for fun
BE INVOLVED! This campus is known as a Commuter-College. Alot of students come and go or are non-traditional. A lot of people don't consider LSUS when they pick colleges in Louisiana,but it is actually a great school.
Bang for the buck
Very cheap school compared to other 4 year-universities.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Nothing of the unusual lol.
Great for these types of students
Students who aren't wanting just to party and want to focus on academics, and for students who live off campus.
Clubs and Activities
The people here are alot nicer than LATECH. Honestly they are. SGA and Rotaract are two awesome organizations to be a part of. Rotaract holds a huge Benefit Ball every year for the Shreveport Bossier Rescue Mission- a lot of students don't know about it. But I've gone for the past 2 years. It's a blast and we get to raise money for a good cause. Just be involved and you will meet some awesome people :)
Greek Life
We have many Sororities and Fraternities. We have a new Sorority (which I am bringing on campus), and a new Frat.
Campus Safety
The campus police are very efficient, but you don't see them very often.

LSUS is a fun, clean, rewarding college that anyone pursuing a degree will love. Friendly people, nice staff and clean campus all contribute to a great campus life. Student activities, clubs and organizations will also make your stay at LSUS a good one.
Tips for prospective students
Stay on track! Dont get caught up in the college party life and forget about your studies. It is very easy to do, especially if you just moved from out of town. Keep everything organized, such as homework and deadlines and you'll do fine. Everyone there is so helpful its hard to get in the weeds.
Academic Rigor
The academics is tough but LSUS doesnt swamp you with homework. 3-4 tests will make up the semester instead of hours and hours of homework.
Dorm Life
I didnt stay in a dorm but from what others have told me they liked them. A short walk from campus and you're there which is nice. Saves money on gas and driving time each morning.
Food and Dining
Food at LSUS is pretty good, They have a kitchen that serves many types of food and drinks including pizza, burgers and even sushi!
What to do for fun
Hanging out in the University Center is fun. In between classes you can go play pool, video games, do homework in the big computer lab, eat, drink, lounge and much more.
Bang for the buck
LSUS is clean, fun and friendly. Parking is the only area that lacks. I wish there were more parking with bigger parking spaces. They are skinny in some areas of campus and people do not know how to park sometimes.
Campus Safety
Campus police constantly patrol the campus ensuring your safety and there are many police call buttons located throughout the campus so if you ever feel unsafe just hit the button and cops come running.
