Dillard University - Comments and Student Experiences|
When I first arrived on campus, the girls were staying in Williams Hall which I believe used to be co-ed or whatever. When I first walked in it smelled like Mildew, as if there were a flood, and Urine. There were roaches and weird bugs and not to mention there BLACK MOLD which is very harmful to the human body and I did get sick because of that. I told the maintenance people and all they did was paint over the black mold. Yes. True story.
The campus life sucks, it is very small so you will see the same people EVERY day and it gets pretty annoying. It is really dead nothing really happens on campus and there aren't really any fun activities for the students to engage in. Homecoming week was boring, the basketball team SUCKS and there isn't a football team. Not to mention, you will know almost everybody that attends the school before the first semester is over and everybody will get in your business and rumors will tend to float all around the campus because everybody there is messy.
By the second semester I regret ever coming to Dillard but New Orleans is a ok city but if you come from a more urban city like Chicago, San Francisco, or Los Angeles it is more slow paced. Downtown and the french quarters eventually becomes a bit tiresome and repetitive but if you want to do some activities that doesn't involve being drunk or dry humping at a party, you have to look outside of your surroundings such ass Metairie or Kenner.
The workers in Business & Finance office are VERY rude and moody. A few times I had to check them about their attitude. Some professors are helpful and some that work there should not even be teaching because they are lazy as hell. If you are a first year student or an incoming student I would advise you to physically look at the school before you even make your decision on which school you will be attending in the fall or spring semester and come when the school is in session. So far I haven't suggested anybody that I know back at home to attend Dillard because it isn't even worth the money. I regret that I wasted my first year in college at this institution.
