In my field, internships are unpaid. I have not yet taken part in an internship as a Lourdes student, however I have heard from others that it's not a hard process if you have the right advisor. Just have a few places in mind, and secure your site early.
Most of the sites that we are partnered with provide a great experience. This is mostly because the good advisors listen to the students, and sever ties with places that consistently treat our students poorly.

The Lourdes University Campus, along with the rest of the city of Sylvania, is very beautiful. Lush green landscaping, walking trails, and pure untouched nature. Its a great place to take a walk and cool off after dealing with the many other issues at Lourdes.

The financial aid people, generally speaking, are some of the most uncooperative, incompetant people I have ever delt with. Don't wait till the last minute to file your FAFSA, because if you do, they will screw it up and you're going to be without financial aid. I always file my FAFSA while I'm filing my taxes (good habit to get into btw), and both years I have been going to Lourdes they waited so long to get stuff done on their end that I almost didn't get any aid in the Fall. Like I filed in February and they were still supposedly working on it in July. It's bad.

The University of Toledo tends to take the spotlight if you cross the city limits into Toledo, and with Sylvania being a smaller suburb of Toledo, we don't get a whole lot of recognition. We also don't have a whole lot of interaction with local universities because we don't play in the same division in them. There are certain instances where we do collaborate with UT for events and such, but not often. It's not that we don't want to, the opportunities just aren't there.

If you have a car, and you have a designated driver, there are more than enough bars, clubs, and restaraunts that serve alcohol within driving distance. You could almost get plastered in a different place every night for a year. (Not that I recommend doing so)
If you don't have a car, there are still many options within walking distance. I wouldn't recommend getting so drunk that you forget your way home, but the local police don't make a big deal about walking home drunk as long as you aren't causing a disturbance.
Off the record, if you do decide to go to Lourdes, and dive bars are your thing, you HAVE to hit up the Villiage Inn. Within walking distance from campus, and great food and beer.

Lourdes has strict rules about alcohol and drug use on campus and in the dorms, but it seems that they only enforce them with the people who are following the rules. For example, I'm 24 years old. I don't hardly drink and I never use drugs. It seemed like every 2 months I was subject to a random search and they would check and make sure I didn't have more than the maximum amount of alcohol in my dorm. This, when they should be busting up the rave party going on in the next hall over. It's irritating.

If you live off campus, you pretty much have to drive. There's no way around it. If you drive, you have to get to school a half hour before your class starts or you won't find a parking spot. When I used to live in student housing I would have this problem as well. It would irritate me that I would have to park a block away because some other student was having a party or something and all the student parking spots were taken. Campus Police rarely enforce parking violations, and therefore violations run rampant. Do the math, 320 students in student housing with 500 parking spots. It should work out, especially since not everybody drives. The fact of the matter is, however, that it doesn't.

One thing I will say about Lourdes is Social Work Majors from Lourdes are highly sought- after in the local area and beyond. There are numerous students in addition to myself who have jobs in the field simply because we are Lourdes students. It provides a sense of security about our future knowing this as well.

The workload is pretty intense, but what do you expect to do to earn a Bachelor's degree? It's not supposed to be a cake walk. There are several professors that I will never take a class from again, but on the other hand there are professors that I love and that I am excited to have again. The registration process is easy and after you have achieved Junior status you can register for classes online.
There are opportunities for independent studies and study abroad options as well.

I was born and raised in Ohio, so I'm used to this bad weather, but it's definitely not ideal. Theres a constant gale- force wind coming off of Lake Erie, it rains at least once a week, and the winters are always frigid.

With the ever rising costs of tuition, the hidden fees that just keep showing up, and the incompetant people at the cashier's office and financial aid, the ONLY reason I am still attending Lourdes is because I have come too far to turn back now. Before this semester started, I seriously considered transferring to Bowling Green, and I wish I would have.

In the name of diversity, the majority have become the minority. When you step on campus and look around you, you see very few people who don't fit into one of two categories. Category 1 is the children of extremely wealthy parents who had everything handed to them their whole life and whose parents are funding their education. Category 2 is minorities and immigrants who are attending school for free on a scholarship. Then you have the few students like me who are "too rich" for financial aid who get treated poorly all around.
We have some of the most liberal professors I have ever seen, also. I'm pretty sure I got flunked out of a class for being conservative. I did the work, I came to class, and at the end of the semester I found out I got an F. There was never any good explaination from the professor, either.
I'm all for diversity. I'm all for attending college with people from all different backgrounds, who think differently from me and who practice different religions. What I do have a problem with is giving preference to anybody over another person because of their background. In essence, in the name of ending racism you are just creating racism toward the "majority" race. That's what happens at Lourdes.

I enjoy the University very much
College Sophomore 2013-10-18T15:11:23Z
I do not live on Campus so I would not know what it is like in the apartments.
College Sophomore 2013-10-18T15:06:38Z
I do not ride any of the transportations at the University except for my car. It's convenient for me because I live close to the Campus.

The Campus provides free laptops in the Library and can rent out the laptops for free, only for a extended period of time. When printing papers, the first ten prints are free, the other papers after that are 10 cents each. The computer labs are very beneficial, but those are more for uses of classes.

You can have a car on campus as a freshman, but there is a shuttle that takes you from the dorms to the main campus so why waste gas, but as far going off campus anywhere you would need a car, the mall is not far away there is a bus that takes you to the mall called TARTA its only a dollar but that bus does not go everywhere

There is always something to do. The LEAP program has different events about every weekend and most of the time it's free they do things like go on hiking trips, cedar point on Halloweekends, Wings-and-Sings which is karaoke night, Ice cream socials. So its always something to do!
College Freshman 2013-10-10T23:47:08Z
The campus is overall very diverse!
College Sophomore 2013-10-10T15:07:37Z
small parking lots and very close to classes
College Sophomore 2013-10-10T15:06:40Z
we need to have what is rules and regulations at Lourdes
College Sophomore 2013-10-10T15:05:51Z
I don't usually participate in any and I don't live on campus with the other students to know anything about that
College Junior 2013-10-02T07:43:21Z
I kind of knew before I applied to Lourdes that I was looking for a Bachelors of Social Work program, so that part was not a hard decision to make. I already have my associate degree in Social Services, so I knew where I wanted to go from there. Lourdes is very well known in the local area for their Nursing and Social Work programs, and I have several classmates who were hired simply because they went to/ are going to Lourdes.
I plan on continuing on to Eastern Michigan University and getting my Master's and opening my own social services agency.

We have a lacrosse team, a volleyball team, and a baseball team, but I've never seen a baseball diamond or a volleyball court on campus, so I have no clue where they practice. Obviously, I've never been to a game, but there is a fair amount of school spirit. The person who dresses up like Gubi, the mascot, is paid a stipend to do so, while the athletes themselves are not, which personally I think is wrong.
What would put this school on the map is if we had a football team.
College Junior 2013-10-02T07:27:21Z
There are constant wild parties on campus, usually in student housing. Campus police are out there at least once a week, often more than that. There are few, if any, campus- run services to assist students struggling with alcoholism or drug addiction as well.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
