What do you consider to be LSUA’s strengths that positively impact student learning?
#Response DateResponse Text
1Apr 15, 2013 1:09 PMOne of the main strengths is that the class size is small, there is more one on one with the teachers than with a larger school. I have also noticed that the faculty and staff know the students and want to know the students.
2Apr 15, 2013 12:59 PMVery good instructors
3Apr 15, 2013 12:29 PMPersonally as a prior LSUA student, I enjoyed the resources this campus contains- such as the library resources that are so often not used, the vast amount of computer labs to use for a number of things, a quiet environment to allow study time on campus, and the personal relationships I was able to build with my professors, advisers, counselors, and classmates. Once found, the support system here is phenomenal.
4Apr 15, 2013 11:56 AMAll the interaction the students have with professors, staff, and all walks of life have a huge impact on creating a balanced and harmonizing individual. Getting rid of the smoking people who lounged out on the cafeteria porch has improved morale more than anyone can gauge. For the students to interact with Student Government it needed to be done away with. The tutors and SI's are positive. We must keep our good professors year after year so that a decent education is given to all. I have seen conflicts arise at other colleges and the elder professors up and left by the hundreds causing unstable confusion; for this reason we must do everything in our power to make this community stable, fun, and inviting to good professors. Keep out people who are negative and SOUR! Send professors and staff to empowering retreats to build closeness and teamwork. Build a tight-nit community of caring souls who are deserving of teaching, directing, and helping student enjoy student life.

6Mar 26, 2013 1:21 PMAssuming the QEP process is a success... Our ability to reevaluate our self and adjust to maximize the students chance of success in the every changing industries around us. Seeing that the way we do things right here and now might need to be changed at any given time based on technology.

9Mar 21, 2013 10:43 AMI think that our strength here is that we have greatly motivated and dedicated professors and small classes. I believe that is what makes LSUA thrive. Our classes are small and personal, so we are able to get more comfortable and we stay involved. Our professors are also very dedicated and are always there to help if you need. I have never had a professor who was not willing to sit together in his or her office after class and answer any questions you had or help you where you thought you were struggling. That is what keeps our students learning and striving. In a class of hundreds of people, you are just another name or number who sits in a chair and listens. That is not at all the kind of environment we have here at LSUA.
10Mar 20, 2013 9:35 AMsmall population and country setting.
11Mar 19, 2013 10:07 AMthat we offer math tutoring and biology tutoring.
12Mar 19, 2013 8:40 AMAt the current time, small groups would be an advantage to recognizing individual student needs
13Mar 19, 2013 7:42 AMThe professors are very willing to help students whenever necessary, this impacts the students to try harder and therefore a student will learn and and improve in the academics of LSUA.
14Mar 19, 2013 7:36 AMSmall classes, low student/instructor ratio, small student body (I know, that totally goes against what we have been charged with achieving!).
15Mar 19, 2013 6:49 AMThe size of our campus allows professors to KNOW their students and assist one on one as required.
16Mar 18, 2013 7:10 AMSmall classes and close attention to progress
17Mar 14, 2013 2:37 PMSmall number of students in classrooms, along with faculty and staff who are committed to the success of each student is, in my opinion, are two our greatest strengths.
18Mar 14, 2013 11:26 AMLearning labs.
19Mar 14, 2013 9:26 AMThe small class sizes and the willingness of the faculty to help students in obtaining success.
20Mar 14, 2013 7:18 AMCommitted faculty, the writing center and other support services aimed at assisting students with deficiencies in thier education
21Mar 14, 2013 6:56 AMVery competent instructors Work with what they are given
22Mar 14, 2013 6:52 AMOur student to teacher ratio. I cannot stress enough how important that is and how great LSUA does in that area. Having the opportunity to have your voice heard in the classroom, being on a first name basis with your fellow classmates, and having direct access to your instructors gives the students a much better chance to excel and invest in their courses.
23Mar 14, 2013 6:44 AMThe only strength that comes to mind is that courses are taught by credentialed faculty.

25Mar 14, 2013 6:38 AMCentralky located in the state. Low tuition
26Mar 14, 2013 6:21 AMCommitment and can-do attitude of instructional staff. I believe the small, personal learning environment is a big factor as well.
27Mar 13, 2013 10:28 AMTutoring Faculty Office Hours Approachable Faculty
28Mar 13, 2013 9:25 AMStrengths: Offering Tutoring Sessions. Availability of the Testing Center for Students with ADHD who need more time to take an exam. Availability of the Activity Center at the Oaks on weekends for student studying. Students being grouped by major at the Oaks.
29Mar 13, 2013 6:23 AMClose to home, smaller classes. The Supplemental Instruction programs are a huge positive - they need to be further encouraged and allowed to more fully develop.
30Mar 12, 2013 3:54 PMNursing and education are LSUA's real "bread and butter." If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
31Mar 12, 2013 2:46 PMsmall class size
32Mar 12, 2013 2:22 PMStudent/instructor ratio...students are not just a number.
33Mar 12, 2013 2:01 PMLSUA is centrally located. Most students can live at home and drive to school everyday or if they prefer to live on campus, housing is available to them. The instructors are friendly, encouraging and wants them to succeed. They go above and beyond to help them. They have office hours where thay are available to assist them when they have trouble with their studies.
34Mar 12, 2013 1:46 PMLSUA provides tutoring in math, biology, and writing. In education, workshops and one-on-one tutoring are provided for passing required national exams. Potentially, small classes can have a positive impact on learning as well.

36Mar 12, 2013 1:39 PMOur peaceful environment and a genuinely friendly staff. Both are hard to find nowadays.
37Mar 12, 2013 1:31 PMFaculty availabitlity to students and concern for students.
38Mar 12, 2013 1:28 PMPersonal attention, smaller classes, and the ability to quickly take action when a situation arises. I believe that the students benefit being at LSUA because they are more than just a number. When you attend a larger institution, students get lost in the mix. There are active members on this campus that go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure students are receiving every possible support they can.
