The class sizes were small, and the class schedule met my needs.

You will definitely get counseling experience in this program through practicum and internship the last two years of the three year program, but it's very expensive since this is a private university.

Relaxing, cozy campus. Great programs. Knowledgeable teachers. At OLLU you are not just a number. Near many eateries.

Our Lady of the Lake University, prepared me for my current position as an Elementary School Counselor. My advisers were there for me every step of the program and ensured I had the skills to be an effective counselor. The experience on the campus was one of being a big family and I was encouraged at every corner. I was encouraged not to stop with this degree and now back in college working toward my doctrine in education.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

Current online MSW student . School is great. ThereĀ are those meetings and a flexible schedule do you have the option to double up on courses if you want to finish faster. Assignments are not too bad. Tons reading is involved & Group work as well . The group work kind of makes it to where it's hard for you to get things done ahead of time , have to try to collaborate with five other people all online. Some of the assignments could be a little clearer but you can always message the teacher for clarification. Although online there's still a lot of involvement by recording your voice for some assignments and were actually making a video which I think gives it that feel of a love classroom. I would recommend the school !

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I applied to OLLU and from the very start, I loved it. The admissions process was easy and the counselor was amazing and always willing to hep me with my questions and continued to reach out to me throughout my admissions process. My classes were already designed for me and my advisor enrolled me in my classes each term so I didn't have to worry about that. The professors were incredible helpful as well. They always got back to me within 24 hours and if they couldn't they made sure I knew they would be out of office well in advance. Although I did not complete my degree, I would recommend this university to anyone looking to complete an MSW.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Student to teacher ratio is 3:1 which is perfect to get more of a teacher one on one. Also love how my school pushes us to get involved outside of school in our field of interest which gives us a more hands on knowledge. Cons: Very expensive and hard to get funds for.

The program is very interactive. The professors are knowledgeable and understanding. The school is not in the best area. The network goes down sometimes and the library can't be accessed.

Degree: Psychology

The program offered an amazing educational experience. I love how the faculty was completely supportive and always there to challenge me. On the other hand, I think the program would have been more helpful if they had a few more professors on staff. It would have been nice to see more diversity among the faculty.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

This graduate program is rigorous, but provides students with tools they will need to advance their knowledge and skills. The professors are responsive and highly qualified. Many have had both real world and academic leadership roles and possess years of expertise. I love OLLU!
