LSUA Student Spotlight

  • David Humphrey

    All the professors at LSUA are readily available, whether it is in their office or even when they’re off campus. Many will give out their cell phone number and they’re more than willing to work with students. This allows me to be more at ease when dealing with them; it allows me to have a new found respect for my instructors because they care about my future as opposed to just doing it as a job.
