LSU has been everything I had imagined and more. My college experience has really been life changing, eye opening, and absolutely phenomenal.
What is your favorite thing about LSU?
One of my favorite things about LSU is that it has so much to offer! Joining an organization or participating in a program with others who share the same interests as you renders a feeling of belonging on such a large campus. In each of my programs and organizations, I’ve met numerous, awesome individuals who are full of passion. Also, I was blessed with the opportunity to study abroad all over Europe in places such as Austria, Germany, Prague, London, Croatia, and Turkey. My time at LSU has really been incredible.
How is LSU helping you accomplish your goals?
One thing that’s imperative as an LSU student is learning how to manage your time. LSU has taught me how to manage my time very well. Also, through LSU, I have met some of the most amazing people—students, counselors, professors, and professionals. My network has been strengthened. Most importantly, I thank God for Student Support Services at LSU because they have provided me with the tools, support, and resources to succeed, not only at LSU but in graduate school as well. They provided me with free tutoring, one-on-one personal advising about graduate school, free GRE prep, résumé workshops, professional etiquette skills for business meetings, and much more. The counselors there are eager to assist me in preparing and planning to take the next step in my life.
Do you have any advice for prospective students?
I would express to a prospective student to get involved with on-campus activities and to take advantage of the many opportunities and resources that LSU offers. LSU challenges, motivates, and prepares students for success. Wherever I go, I am proud to say that I am a student of Louisiana State University!
