  • A month ago, I was travelling towards New Orleans.It was my first trip to the place and even the state. I am from Texas ! On my way in Baton Rouge, I took a wrong exit and I ended up visiting this University! I was so amazed by their environment up there. Lots of trees inside the campus, and the campus buildings looked so classic, more like a Cali style . I loved their design of the rooftops. They have a small river that runs between the university and you will see a lot of people waling on its sides. I met a person there and I asked him for direction to their main library. He walked me all the way up there and told me lots about the college ! He was really kind and helpful. Their football stadium looked big and nice ! Great environment for study ! Classic ! And New Orleans is like half an hour drive from there as well ! Beautiful Campus, Beautiful People

  • Dr. Luminais was very patient and understanding during my treatment. Taking the time to explain the process to me. I thank him for his time and my dental work.
