I chose La Salle because from the minute I stepped on the campus I felt like I was a part of the community. Coming from California, it was really important to me to find a place where I felt comfortable. La Salle was one of the only places where I could get the comfort of being in a city without having to be smack dab in the middle of the hustle and bustle.
La Salle surprised me with the amount of help there is everywhere on campus: from the Technology department, picking classes and especially the professors. The amount of joy professors get from seeing their students’ successes is just mind blowing to me because they are actually there for the student and not just for the paycheck. I knew I would like being there, but I never thought I would be on the beach during the summer counting the days till I come back to this beautiful school.
