Hi Brianna,
I went to LCB from September 2015 through June 2016.  I think 
you'll really like it there.  When I went there were about 35 
students or so.  The day is from 8 to 5.  All the classes are 
tailored to each person's individual needs.  Wood shop has a set 
program, and you need to pass all the levels of Typeability in 
computer class, but besides that typically everything is at your 
own pace.  There are quite a few restaurants.  My favorite was a 
burger place called Cheeburger Cheeburger.  Also, students walk 
to school once the OANDM instructor clears them to do so.
Also depending on your religion, there are quite a few places of 
worship, and you can make lots of friends from going there 
because of Louisiana Tech being in session also.
Hope this helps.  Feel free to ask me any other questions.

Hi everyone, my name is Brianna McDowell.  I'm a blind college 
student from Georgia.  I've just recently graduated from college 
with my associates degree in social work.  I've decided to go 
ahead and start independence training at the Louisiana Center For 
the Blind.  I'd like to know what experiences those of you who 
went had.  What can I expect t? Also, I guess I'm a bit nervous 
because I'll be far away from home in an unfamiliar city.  I'm 
from a small town in Georgia, and i've lost some of the 
orientation and mobility skills I learned in school.
Look forward to hearing from you Guys soon
