Am learning a lot
The University of New Orleans is a great school. Since I began school in August, it has been nonstop learning and experiencing new subjects. Being a freshman in a new environment has been a quite a change, but UNO is a great school to be in a diverse environment and allows you to understand and embrace new ideas. I have learned a lot while attending here and I cannot wait to start my next semester here.
Am enjoying being here
UNO is great fun and provides numerous of activities for every interest. UNO's campus is so friendly and open that anyone can find a nice, quiet spot to study, hang out, or just relax.
Bang for the buck
The University of New Orleans is an affordable school and provides several scholarships to compensate for other expenses. Anyone who wants to attend an university that is cost affordable and provides a wide range of majors, then University of New Orleans is right for you.

UNO is an amazing school! The teachers help out a lot by giving detailed syllabus, test tools, easy to fallow PowerPoint slides, and practice tests. I am currently studying Hotel, Restaurant, And Tourism Administration. My business teachers bring in professionals from the different fields and assign destination visits for Homework.
Am enjoying being here
I really Love being at UNO. It is a great location for my study, and UNO is greatly involved in the city of New Orleans. UNO its self is a great place to be because they have so much going on and it is easy to make friends.
Bang for the buck
Just before I started school I was worried about how I would pay for college, during orientation we were shown how UNO students can check our financial aid. I was still worried about how I would pay for books and housing, but then I was told that I can rent books and pay for housing on my tuition, and that any remaining money would be placed in my bank account. Then I found out about all of the free assistance and other things we can get, such as free rental DVDs and job search assistance. In the end I really didn't have to worry about anything.
Tips for prospective students
Check out all of your options when in comes to housing. Sometimes the Apartments are cheaper then the dorms.Take as many classes as you can, it is a great help in being able to afford school in the long run. Get the used text books and always check blackboard and your e-mail.
Great for these types of students
Students who like to be close to the action. Big and small classes. First time independence.

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.
Tips for prospective students
Stay Focused, Get involved on campus, and utilize all campus resources.
Academic Rigor
While attending the UNO, you will be faced with a lot of challenges especially academically as the school is a very good school in terms of academics.
Dorm Life
Dorm Life's pretty amazing, The dorms are literally 6 years old ponchartrain hall has an indoor convenient store and multiple study rooms available at all times. I viewed these as a few deal breakers before i moved in and i made the right decision.
Food and Dining
ARFOC, keeps the students with a large variety of healthy food choices daily.
What to do for fun
Attend the greek activities and get involved on campus because there's so much to do.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
While attending UNO there's an annual sucbauf, for most students who travel to the university it might seem a bit weird eating crawfish because that's whats being served there but to locals its just another huge crawfish boil and celebration in the big easy.
Great for these types of students
UNO is a great place for students who are looking for an affordable education, great campus life, and the support of the University.

Greek Organizations here are highly involved from bake sales, to community service the greek's here are very consistent.

They value the safety of the campus and have Campus Police at the University of New Orleans are on duty 24 hours 7 days a week.

The University of New Orleans has an outstanding business programs. They give new and current students easy access to review all of what's going on around campus with their easy to use website. Their financial aid office personnel is more than helpful when students are in need of funds to aid them when wanting to join school.
Tips for prospective students
When trying to enroll have all documents in place to make the process as easy as possible. Have your ACT/SAT test taken and scores ready to turn in.
Academic Rigor
The Business department is exceptional. The academic advisers are truly helpful and the business office department always has speakers and different types of engagements for students. And they help business students with internship programs when entering their senior year.
Dorm Life
There is a dorm on campus but if you don't like dorm living, there is an apartment complex on campus as well that gives a view of lake pontchartrain depending on the location of your apartment.
Food and Dining
The University of New Orleans offers a meal dining plan. There are several places to eat on campus and other restaurants and a Rouses Grocery store and PJ's coffee house in walking distance.
What to do for fun
The University of New Orleans offers a variety of fun activities for students. Monthly there are fun activities offered and some go according to the season such as Mardi Gras.

I recommend visiting the crayfish boil. The mud-bugs are absolutely delicious when cooked in famous Zatarain's seasoning. Eating crayfish is a New Orleans tradition.

Security is always on staff 24 hrs a day.

Am learning a lot
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.
Am enjoying being here
UNO is more of a commuting school than a fun school. There are not many things to do around the school, and many students just go for schooling then leave back home or to go to work. However it is still an enjoyable experience, and I have a good time sitting with friends during my breaks, or while walking to classes.
Bang for the buck
I give UNO a 5-star in education for the buck. The education is great, and definitely worth the tuition price. My problem are the extra fees UNO tacks on. Such as the Fitness Center fee.. whether you use it or not, you pay for it. Or the Academic Excellence fee which is a fee for.... being excellent? Or the Fuel Recovery charge for the on-campus electric generator. And on-campus meals are EXPENSIVE. The on-campus bookstore way overcharges for their books, but that is what half.com is for. So all-in-all, the education is worth the tuition, the fees are ridiculous, the meal & book prices are ridiculous as well.
Tips for prospective students
The University of New Orleans is a great choice in school. My tips would be to work in HS to get the best scholarship you can (meal & book coverage is definitely worth it.. that is if you have TOPS to cover tuition). The counselors are not the greatest at scheduling your classes, so you are better off asking someone that attends/attended the school to schedule you. You are better off going to Spring Testing.. try to test out of whatever you can. It will get you out of College quicker.
Great for these types of students
The school is great for people looking to live at home and commute. Or people that would like to work as well as be a full-time student (like me).
