My impressions of the ULM campus
Took a drive through campus today and I'd like to say good things.....

But the truth is, I see why they have difficulty winning, mostly because it'd be a hard place to recruit to. I've been to about half the SBC campus now and this is the least impressive so far.

The athletic facilities are older. However, the track facility is getting a new track. There was no other construction going on on campus that I saw. Most of the buildings seem to have been built back in the 50-60's except the library, which is huge compared to everything else on campus. Also didn't look like there was room for much more new construction. The Bayou that runs through campus is actually very nice, not sure why they isn't emphasized more. There isn't much green space on campus either.

One question for the ULM people, what are the shed looking buildings that are in the visitor side stands on the football field, between the lower and upper sections??? Are those suites???

Sorry ULM, didn't mean to be negative about your campus. I realize finances have been tough in Louisiana, and I haven't been to other campus' in the state to compare. But you guys have a huge uphill climb in the facility wars.

Another observation, while in town I hear radio advertisement for LaTech football season tickets and have seen LaTech gear, other then right at campus you wouldn't know ULM exist here.

Best of luck ULM, you guys might need it more then any of us. 04-cheers

Hahaha the sheds.

Yeah, those are trailers on stilts used as suites.

Should have gone that half hour west to Ruston/Grambling. No nice way to put it, drive thru Grambling's campus and I promise you'll leave there think WTH did I just leave? The heyday of Grambling is long past athletically and administratively has been a train wreck. Should have been closed down long ago due to neglect and mismanagement, but that won't happen. Cheaper to run a dump than fight in court.

Meanwhile ULM and others, who honestly try, suffer. I'd have no problem if Tech made a takeover or collaboration play for Grambling.

It won't. Too logical to close a non functional government operation and have the closest university (Tech, 5 miles) take in its students. Not a shot at ULM, would benefit all. Except the leadership at Grambling, who should be unemployed.

RE: My impressions of the ULM campus
First off at least we have an on campus stadium. Yeah you're getting one built but till then you don't have one.
You're just being a straight dick. This is a straight joke. That's fine but our campus isn't that bad.

Second last I remember for all the negative you just brought up we beat you. You need some luck yourself.
A lot of the on campus housing aren't that old. They built new buildings and redid some.

Yes those are suites and I can't defend that but I can ask about your suites? Till then ....

The $17.4 million, 88,000-square-foot building is a “one-stop shop” for students, representing a step forward in the revitalization of ULM’s facilities. The building houses the university bookstore, the office of recruitment and admissions, the university registrar, financial aid, the scholarship office, campus radio station KXUL, an innovation center, and other core administrative departments.

If people are going to post stupid stuff it probably won't. Just providing facts on wrong information.
