Student Reviews

My virtual trip at LSU-S
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

My experience has been wonderful. The professor that I have had communicate with you about your work, and future endeavors . They answer email quickly they encourage you to ask if you don’t know something. Price of having to pay for college is what didn’t work.
