My review

The Good:

The best thing about the University of New Orleans is the education. It's an excellent value for the money. The professors are all knowledgeable, and very approachable. The students are all ages. It's an excellent choice.

The Bad:

The worst thing about this school is that activities outside of class are very inadequate. There are some fine dorms and apartments on campus, but it is pretty boring because there are little to no activities, particularly in the evening. This is definitely not a party school. The best thing to to is to live off-campus, and commute. So for student life outside of class, I'd give it a D.

Would I do it again?

Yes, I would do it again because I was an older student with a family. and I commuted. I loved the classes, and the professors, which is why I went to college. The library and research facilities are outstanding. I was happy with the experience.
