LSU Student Feedback
The service-learning portion allowed me to learn in a hands-on manner.
Gathering data on plants at the swamp allowed me to see first-hand the importance of maintaining an ecosystem. I thoroughly enjoyed doing this and I hope they continue this partnership for years to come.
I really enjoyed the service learning aspect of this class.
