  • 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.
  • If you like lots of live oak trees, sports, and jogging , this is a good place to study, work or hangout!
  • LONZO BALLLLL ODELLLL WOOOOOH maybe i can meet someone like em in a few years ayeee
  • Amazing school. Budget cut by state has put the school into lot of troubles. Otherwise it is one of the good universities to study. Lot of beautiful and scenic places within the college.
