re: any of you hate BR? - zacata88
I hate that my post will be lost in a sea of negativity, but: I'm not from Baton Rouge or even Louisiana, but I lived there for a time. I loved it and miss it more than I ever thought I would. I lived in Beauregard Town which is a great area. Outside of I-10 traffic, I have no complaints. ...

Anyone know anything about Western Governors University? - zacata88
Anyone know anything about or have any experience with this online university? I work full-time so going back to school isn't an option for me, but they have a degree that looks interesting that I could do in my spare time and my job would potentially pay for most of it. Are they another South...
