Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

I feel the chemical Engineering at LSU is really a good one. But the funding availability is limited.

Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2020

The pros are the fact that the faculty expect a high level of professionalism and push us towards getting higher results both in courses and research.This helps in excellent professional development and is also evident from the graduate alumni. The cons are the administration and welfare. The health care was taken from students this year and the fees (which come out of our stipend) are ever increasing causing an additional burden on students. The administration in general are also slow in taking decisions.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Baton Rouge isn't the best place for graduate students - it is a typical college town saturated by 18 - 22 year olds and does not have a young professional crowd. I seek refuge in New Orleans (1 hour drive) every chance I get.
