Hi, I have been reading everything I can about Shreveport and surrounding areas, but still need advice. My 18 year old daughter is dead set on attending LSUS this fall. She has always wanted to live in the south and when given the opportunity to go on scholarship to LSUS she is excited. I am not. we live in southwest ohio in a rural area that she is trying to get away from.
I have seen where people have been talking about the crime rate and so on about the bad schools and neighborhoods. We live close to Cincinnati which has a very high crime rate. I need to find an apartment or house within a short distance of the campus that would be safe for her and a couple roommates? Also best safe areas to find a part time job ?
Any help at all

Hate to resurrect an old post, but it may apply to anyone else thinking of going to LSU Shreveport. I attended there from 99-2003, graduated with a BS in Business Admin. Overall, the quality of the instruction I thought was good, but it's a commuter campus. It does have apartments on campus, near Willis Knighton hospital. It's in a good part of town, lots of shopping and such. I'm sure it has its petty crime, but not a bad place to live in the area. If your daughter is going on scholarship (full ride), I say go for it. If she has other offerings, she might want to consider them as LSUS does not have much of a social scene, it's mainly commuter campus for working adults and such. I would have went to another college (like LSU BR) if I had the means

I lived in S'port for 2 yrs and loved it. It really isn't that bad of a place to live. LSUS is a decent school and congrats to your daugter for getting a scholarship. There are several apt near LSUS, I lived in some down the rd from LSUS and loved it. They were a little older but great neighborhood and had covered parking and it was right across from an elementary school. Around LSUS is everything, Wal-mart, SuperTarget, Movie Theatre, Grocery Stores, Restaurants etc... For a good part time job, she should consider maybe working as a bank teller. The pay is decent (more than min wage) and there are several around the LSUS area.
