    Majority of full ride scholarships go to lower income students. I hate it here so much I am transferring after 1 semester. The students here a somewhat nice but when it comes to the office workers (Financial Aid and Housing) and the professors they a honestly rude, not helpful or understanding. Dont be fooled! Like you're LaSalle not freaking Villanova... cocky for no reason! ...Continue reading

    Don't come here. Makes no sense at all since I got on honor roll every year for all years at my school and had a 3.8 GPA and I've met students who get a full ride with awful GPA's makes no sense at all. I CANT wait to transfer out of here. Literally the worst mistake to come here. ...Continue reading

    Hands down best decision I (ever) made to come to La Salle University! The off campus area is not the nicest but the families living there are hard working and you will find no trouble unless you are causing trouble. It is a great school with a lot of connections (the La Sallian world is huge with 6 other universities in America and schools and brothers across the world). ...Continue reading

    Great school with an amazing faculty. The location makes many turn away, but those that stay love it. Get involved and get to know the people in your classes, working, and your professors and you will learn that the Explorers are of a different breed. My favorite part of it is the community! I feel so welcome here, and it is my true home! ...Continue reading

    Employers want to hire La Salle grads. I knew no one and was hearing about people I know from my old neighborhood who were going. Turns out those people actually don't go here and also turns out that I am in love with my campus. I love it so much that I'm switching from being a commuter to a resident. Teachers will know your name and many will remember you for the rest of your university career, from what I've seen. Speech-language-hearing program is awesome but difficult: work hard if you're a speech student, trust me. I like this school a lot though and I'm enjoying my experience here. ...Continue reading

    LaSalle is a great school academically. Socially it sucks, If your looking for the ideal college experience you may want to look elsewhere. But remember at the end of the day college is about the work not fun. Work hard now so fun can come later in life There is no outside food places to eat in the area unless you drive. its quick to get downtown on the train. The school is pretty good on safety but you can't control the community. There are not many off campus housing options. North dorms sucks! Academicseverything else ...Continue reading

    I'm happy with my choice, they program for my major is one of the best As a commuter, I can't get involved in many of the late afternoon or night social activities which would allow me to meet more people.

    I am from another state far away and all I could say is i am having fun but I could be at a big state school. Some meals are good but others can be a little nasty. The school is located at a decent location. I wouldn't walk around the area (off campus) at 2 am by yourself. ...Continue reading

    I really like the size the classes are very interesting as long as you choose the right ones with good professors (do research on here make sure you don't pick an awful one). Its safe on campus, and there are shuttles to and from the subway station. The city is very accessible and professors in your first year odyssey class actually teach you how to use the public transportation. A little empty on the weekends, but otherwise good. ...Continue reading

    La Salle is a small school there is a lot of potential depending on what you do with your time. There are many issues that the administration knows about but take forever to fix, outdated dorms, average food quality, outdated buildings etc. La Salle is not worth the money although nearly everyone comes here for the money that is given to them. ...Continue reading

    great college, great teachers Felt like home. Great teachers who care about the students. You are safe if you are smart.

    It's alright but if you are just trying to stick to yourself its not that good, there's not much to do in walking distance and it is in a pretty bad neighborhood. Required classes are not offered frequent enough to work with busy schedules. Some classes offered at campuses that are not convenient but to take the course you have to make the commute. If it weren't for the work requirements for other MBA programs I would have transferred out by now. ...Continue reading

    Great School! You'll realize as soon as you get here the type of community atmosphere La Salle gives you. Once you get here, you'll hate it, but love it. La Salle students have bond to each other. We laugh at the food, ghetto, and sports teams. Perfect small school. ...Continue reading

    This school is virtually terrible. Business building has no printers, many computers don't work, sports facilities are run-down, facility is just putting their time in, administration is useless.

    The education I got at La Salle was very good but the critical thinking and presentation and writing skills I learned from being around the professors have been what has driven me and my career. For Business, Communication and Science its incredible. For History, Education, and English, go somewhere else. Also, I'm going for a Science major, and I love the staff and my classes, but La Salle focuses more finding jobs for Business and Finance majors, leaving Science out to dry. ...Continue reading

    If you're looking for a great education this is the school, but if you went to have a social life as well, you better be ok with wanting to do something with Greek Life or at least be on a sports team.

You can find much better schools for a similar cost elsewhere. ...Continue reading
