I do feel that the state seems to have ways that they do things different from other parts of the country. though i really do not know much about Arkansas. I feel Louisiana IS DIFFERENT THAN TEXAS.
East Texas has and shares some similarities to Louisiana.

There are many Spanish/French/Creole/Latin parts of East Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, and West Florida.

The North and South are quite different. Then there's Cenla (Central Louisiana) Alexandria, Natchitoches, etc. These are very interesting places. I'd say they're both more similar to Baton Rouge, maybe because they're along I-49.

I understand that New Orleans wants to be very unique and it is, but trust me there are a lot place in Louisiana with a lot of similarities in culture and tradiition. How different can you be 60 miles away? lol.

Cenla is usually grouped up with north Louisiana. Especially Natchitoches.

Baton Rouge and New Orleans are completely different, so are New Orleans and Biloxi. Doesn't sound like you are from here.

FWIW... I've found the Lafayette, LA area to be quite hospitable and most folks are friendly. It's not a place I personally would relocate to as I prefer a more metropolitan setting. I've had friends locate there and move back because of work...their take is that if you aren't related to anyone or have a family-base there, you can feel a bit isolated but it's not unfriendly as much as it is "you're not from here" feeling. I think that's true of most places though...especially if you're like me and not a parent with kids in sports or big in church activities.

Very true..Fla, NY and Ca are similar examples, especially where Large cities such as Los Angeles, Miami and NYC set the tones for their respective parts of the state.

However, his mothern and step father went to school there lol, so can anyone give me and comments on monroe? I'll be staying on campus, and thanks guys for all your input on this thread.
Southeastern, the third largest university in the state, is about twice the size of ULM; because of the sheer size, it has more amenities. Southeastern is known for its Business, Nursing, and Education programs. ULM for its pharmacy program. Southeastern's campus is beautiful with large oaks, new dorms, and a gorgeous student center. Hammond is in a much better location than Monroe, IMO. Hammond is a lovely, well laid out town that is close to Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The Northshore area is one of the fastest growing areas in the state. Not been impressed with Monroe on my visits there. Although the per capita income is a little higher in Monroe, it looks more impoverished to me.
