What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
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.
Kayla from Baton Rouge, LA
This is a great school, I love it here. Great learning opportunities for all types of students. This school also has a good atmosphere.
