    My favorite thing about LSUA is the hands-on learning that is accessible to me. I know of other schools that don't offer as many opportunities to be involved with local businesses and organizations, and that’s really important to me.

    I lived over an hour away and living on campus helps a lot; especially with gas prices being so high. Living at the The Oaks feels like being at home. I also enjoy being able to walk to class every day.

  • Lauren Morgan

    My name is Lauren Morgan, and I am honored to represent LSUA. As an admissions counselor, I strive to make students immediately feel at home on campus. LSUA is exceptional; it offers such a rigorous academic environment while also promoting a sense of approachability between students and professors. The small classes, extracurricular opportunities, and first rate facilities are only a few of the reasons students are so attracted to our campus. We are, indeed, "close to home" but "far from ordinary."

    LSUA has a family feel like no other and has stolen my heart since 2012. During my time as a student at LSUA, I was a part of various clubs and organizations, was a member of the Dean’s List, was crowned Ms. LSUA, and received my Bachelor’s degree in General Studies. I made countless friends that will last a lifetime, memories that I will never forget, and found a HOME. LSUA is the true definition of “Endless Possibilities,” and I am dedicated to helping every prospective student find success. Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding anything on campus.
