Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

LSU has excellent instrument facilities and great researches.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

The faculty are always there to help with any questions or concerns you may have. They are very accomadating to new students as well. The one downfall is that there is not much networking with outside companies, so getting connections for future job opportunities is difficult.

2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

It's a school with a lot of potential. But its a lot of word doing a thesis in grad school. You need to be great at time management and be able to balance work and a social life. It's very important.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2012

I felt that the faculty advisers were phenomenal-- always available and encouraging. The coursework could be more tailored to individual student interest and future goals.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The IE department is small compared to the other engineering departments. While this means there are limited courses offered, it is nice to have a very close group of faculty and students.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

One of the biggest pros of my program is that the program is CACREP-approved, meaning that the courses taught are considered to provide us with the best training so we can become well-prepared counselors. Another pro is that my particular cohort is small, only eight of us, which allows us to learn and grow more closely with one another and we feel more comfortable around each other. The biggest con is that the program was recently raised to 60 hours of credit, meaning that the degree is now a 3 year program instead of a 2 year program. This delays our graduation date and raises the time it will take us to work in the real world.
