Review of University of New Orleans

Rating: StarStarStarStarStar_gray By: Ellen S., Alum Posted: August 08, 2012

My review

The Good:

Great professors who are experts in their fields, lots of local culture, friendly locals, a wide variety of interesting classes (I studied Russian, German, French and Japanese -- even though I was a Marketing major.)

The Bad:

You get out what you put in; If you don't actively get involved on campus, nothing exciting will happen for you. I started a French club with a friend and we had great social activities planned that resulted in many of my enduring friendships. Oh, and be careful of lightning when crossing the quad in front of the library.

Would I do it again?

Yes, Location in New Orleans, lots of nearby student apartments located off campus, one bus ride to the French Quarter.

About this school

Biggest influence when choosing this school Financial aid

The financial aid process went smoothly and I received the financial aid I needed.

Professors are generally Engaging

The night life is Off Campus

Every student at this school needs Friends or family who live off campus because it's pretty dead on weekends and holidays.

Most students spend their Saturday nights If it's finals time, then students are in the library. Otherwise, in the French Quarter or at clubs in Metairie.

About the reviewer

Went to Marion Abramson Senior High

You might also consider Louisiana State University

Favorite class is English 1159 - it was an Honors English class that highlighted Greek literature. All my liberal arts classes were great, I minored in French.

Favorite professor is Dr. Jean Cranmer, Dr. Jane Cromartie

Favorite activity is Studying in the Sand Bar and taking multiple breaks to people-watch.

Another awesome thing is Student employment opportunities on and off campus.

Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? Get good grades and a high ACT score in order to get good scholarships.

I wish I knew I wish I stuck with my original major or had better guidance as to what to major in.

Preparation for the workforce

Time needed to find a job post-graduation 1-6 months
