I wish I had gone someplace else. This school is a waste of time and money.

Although the courses specific to a chosen degree may be somewhat challenging and helpful, the university-wide requirements are, at best, below-average to the point of being insulting to the student's intellect.

On the positive side, the extra curricular activities are excellent—if you are a sports / athletics jock. Although other out-of-class activities are available, the University couldn't care less about promoting them or about pushing their name in an area other than sports. Moreover, "Greek lifers" dominate the social scene of the campus so much that not belonging to a fraternity / sorority makes an otherwise good student feel ostracized and without any other social outlet than becoming involved in the typical "wild party" scene.

If you care about furthering yourself as a student and individual, go someplace else. In high school, I never signed up for letters and ads from colleges / universities, and ignored the many solicitations I received because my name was given out, because I just assumed that it never mattered where I went and that U of L was just as good (and cheaper) than any other given school. Now my friends are talking about some of the neat non-athletic things that their school offers and how challenging the courses are and how much they've learned; however, I feel like I'm repeating 8-10th grades in terms of new experiences and having challenging, meaningful assignments.

I wish I had done things differently and gone someplace else.
