3Mar 25, 2013 2:22 PMThe quality of instructors is a very positive influence on learning.
4Mar 20, 2013 7:55 AMThe recent addition of student housing on campus, I think has added to the value of student life at LSUA. More consideration should be given to students living on campus to develop a sense of community.
5Mar 19, 2013 12:15 PMVariety of methods and times in which coursework is offerred. Hands-on, interactive with students.
6Mar 14, 2013 9:16 AMthe combination of the "LSU" brand, the cost / value proposition of LSUA, and the local, 4-year nature of the college appeals to students.
7Mar 14, 2013 6:55 AMOur strength lies in the faculty and their professionalism. Our students interact with people who have doctoral degrees not people who are working on doctoral degrees. Our accessibility to people in the area. Our low cost. We are less expensive to operate than the new junior colleges. Our MPAC building. Our efforts to build town and gown relations--Cavanaugh Lectures Alexandria Quiz Bowl. Our museum. Our movement toward student-centered learning. Our honest attempts at outcomes assessment.
8Mar 13, 2013 9:03 PMIt is a good local commuter school, but could be so much more with adequate resources. Working with NSU to enhance departments with specific strengths (i.e. the arts and nursing) would be a good start.
9Mar 13, 2013 1:32 PMIts strengths are small classes, a professor in all the classes (not graduate school instructors) and the professors care aboout the students and work to help them when they are struggling. After waiting over 20 years there is now a new very adequate academic building. The academic quality of the professors and their working to prepare the students for their desired vocation. The availability for students to acquire scholarships.
