Student Sound Offs

"I love how the U of L requires everyone to take general liberal arts requirements. This means students take courses from all areas: Sciences, Fine Arts & Humanities, and Social Science. It is easy to switch your major in the first few years without too many problems because of this requirement."

"The U of L has an amazing neuroscience department with world-class professors. It has up-to-date equipment and technology and each lab conducts important research."

"The safety level is out of this world. I've never felt safer alone than here on campus.""It's very personalized, we really get good individual attention from our professors."

"How beautiful the scenery is around campus, the coulees are really beautiful and no one seems to notice it."

"If the U of L was to do one thing while I am attending classes here, it would be to paint over the cement ... I wouldn't feel like I was going to school in a prison any more."

"People at the U of L are very down to earth ... and very accepting."

"World-class facilities like the new Health and Wellness Centre."

"The Addictions Program is the only degree program of its kind in Canada."

"There's an underground tunnel ... you can get anywhere without going outside."
