Lake Charles, LA


Recommended Posts

Anyone know anything about Lake Charles? Specifically cost of living and safety/crime? I'm thinking about applying to McNeese's MFA program since it's free and they only ask for your writing sample and a letter up front.

Its a nice little southern town. Living is very economical there. On campus housing is kinda on the expensive side. There is this place called University Square which is right across the street from campus - they have nice studios (basically a 1 bedroom) for about $400. You can also find 2 bedrooms around campus for about 600 depending on what you're looking for. Its a fairly safe town. I only heard occasional instances of crime but fairly safe. There is not much to do in the town by itself. I suggest living close to campus. A regular college town to be precise.
