Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

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!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The good thing about OLLU's graduate program is that the small class sizes allows for one-on-one interaction with professors. Also, the program covers a wide range of topics related to the field, including marketing, accounting, economics, and business law.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program was designed as a full time program for students who also work full time; I am successfully doing both. The workload is reasonable and the faculty in the program are knowledgeable and supportive. The program is in the works of becoming NASP accredited with will undoubtedly make it more competitive than it currently is. The School Psychology MS program, is three years; one of which includes a paid internship. I love that this program does everything in its power to help students achieve. All faculty in the program have PhDs and guest speakers are frequently brought in. We recently had an in depth review of the WISC-V from one of the researchers at Pearson. The only cons about the program would be the area of the city my school is located on and the cost (it's private), however those seem like a minor inconveniences considering the education and experiences I am receiving.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the flexibility of the online program, but miss the human interaction I got when I attended traditional courses. The faculty and staff are open to other means of interaction that had been beneficial when I lived outside of San Antonio, TX. Since arriving here they have been open and receiving when I visit campus despite my continuing with the online program. Even as an online student I am able to take advantages of all opportunities that are offered to traditional students. I appreciate the small classes and have found this online learning experience to be far better than a previous experience I had. At Our Lady of the Lake they know that their reputation depends a lot on student success and they aim to assist us in different facets.
