What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
Don't listen to what other people say about some of the teachers or classes. Some people find certain classes or professors harder than others, so don't be intimidated by opinions. Be confident in yourself.
Amanda from Raceland, LA
Take advantages of all the services at Nicholls. Meet as many staff as you can and form relationships with them because they are willing to help you throughout your college career. Join clubs because it makes college more fun and give you something to do for your down time. Stay on campus because if you don't you are missing out on half the fun of college.
Xavia from Troy, AL
STUDY! BE ORGANIZED! BE DETERMINED!
Dakotah from Theriot, LA
Go to class, you are paying for it anyway, and it doesn't pay to miss classes when you have to make up more work. Teachers, for the most part, are on your side and will do whatever they can to help you, especially within your major. Don't worry about what other people are doing, be yourself and do what you feel is right.
Abbie from Des Allemands, LA
Never pay for a textbook unless its necessary! Wait until your first day of class to determine if your going to need the textbook for class. Renting/Buying anything for the campus bookstore is extremely expensive so become best friends with Chegg or find student who previously bought they book and is selling it cheap.
Nicholls Student from New Orleans, LA
Sign up for classes as soon as possible! Although this is great advice for any college, it's definitely one to be taken seriously. They cannot work with your schedule if you do not set down the mold for them to follow. Also, arrive on time or early and without a phone in your face. You paid thousands of dollars to go to school, don't waste it scrolling on social media.
Faith from Morgan City, LA
Sitting in the front of class is encouraged. Being in the front allows you to build a relationship with your teacher. If you are an active learner in the classroom you can actively study in your dorm room.

get involved! the best way to meet friends is to find your niche and get involved by joining some sort of organization. it also helps to hang out in the lobby of your dorms, i've seen plenty make friends by hanging out in the dorm lobbies. also go to any events around campus like homecoming and craw fish day. those are the two biggest events on campus and they are a lot of fun.
Sara from Lake Charles, LA
i suggest applying for classes as early as possible. some classes that are necessary for graduation fill up very quickly. i know a few art students who needed one more class to graduate, but they kept waiting to apply, and found that it was full already.
Alexis from Napoleonville, LA
visit the department of your desired major. they love it when prospective students want a closer look.
