"I worked with many great athletes and coaches, allowing me the opportunity to gain experience and confidence that without, I wouldn’t be where I am today. LSSU not only gave me my undergraduate education but I gained lifelong friends and connections that will go with me in whatever endeavor that I attempt. Athletic Training at LSSU changed my life and changed my goal in life for the better. "

Title: John Singer sargent: Outside the Frame
Movie ID: VT6240
Movie Number: 6240
Description: By 1900, John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) was the most admired, the most sought after portraitist in England and America. He exquisitely portrayed in oil and watercolor the spirit of the Gilded Age, and made eternal the elegance of aristocracy, the romance of childhood and the sensuality of Venice. Yet after his death he was quickly dismissed as merely a commercial portrait painter. Now a closer look at his work reveals much more than the faces of the wealthy. Produced and directed by Emmy-winner Jackson Frost, this documentary reexamines Sargent's work, including his landscapes, figure paintings and murals, showing him to be one of the great painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Sargent's unique perspectives capture the essence of his times and the carnage of the First World War that brought the Gilded Age to its bloody end.

"LSSU's size is perfect. I see familiar faces every day. There is a security and comfort in that. The professors are wonderful, and there is a lot of interaction in the smaller classes. The level of attention students get is the same as at a small private college, but at a great price." [ more ]
