McNeese State University is a private university that’s large enough to offer a range of academic offerings and just small enough to foster an intimate learning environment.
Located in Lake Charles, Louisiana, McNesse State was ranked a Tier 2 Regional University by U.S. News and World Report and has been categorized as a Master’s University by The Carnegie Foundation.
McNeese State offers over 70 degree programs through the colleges of Education, Business, Engineering and Technology, Liberal Arts, Nursing and Science and the Division of General and Basic Studies. McNeese is also home to the Dore School of Graduate Studies.
With a relatively small student body, McNeese is just small enough to allow for individual attention in the classroom and a tightly-knit community atmosphere.
Students at McNeese may benefit from such extracurricular offerings as its nationally recognized speech and debate team, participation in the award-winning student yearbook, or the student newspaper, as well as involvement in student clubs and athletics.
Student services at McNeese include housing and dining services, career services, a counseling center, disability services, financial aid, a writing center student employment opportunities and a student health center.
100% of students gave McNeese State University 3 stars overall.
The school has a beautiful quad area that is great for squirrel watching or studying. The campus is easy to navigate, but finding parking is horrible unless you are staff/junior/senior. Best bet would be to pay the extra $35-$40 at the off campus church groups if you don't want to have to hike to campus. The campus police are very snotty and uncaring; any offense is a reason to recieve a ticket. There are some great, caring and passionate professors, but there are some that feel that the more students that can be failed, then their job is complete. Be prepared for tuition hikes (usually in the range of $75-$100) every semster. Take advantage of the free lunches offered by off campus church groups like Baptist Collegiate Ministry and Wesley Foundation. There are two more that offer free lunches, but I do not know the names. Each of these groups have their lunches on different days of the week so trying all of them is possible. These groups are also great ways to make friends and socialize with other students. You don't have to commit to their organization; just show up for food and fun.
