An accomplished group of 38 high school students and their families came to hear more about the Louisiana Scholars’ College at the school’s Spring Scholars’ Day held at NSU’s Morrison Hall March 16. The students attended sample classes and a panel discussion with current students, while their parents had their own panel. The walls of Morrison Hall featured excerpts from student’s theses and research projects.
The Louisiana Scholars’ College was founded in 1987 as the state’s only designated honors college. The school features a great books based curriculum with small class sizes averaging 15 students per class. The school’s 110 students excel in not just academics, but in every aspect of campus life from athletic teams to Greek life and student government. The college offers a superb education at a modest price compared to private universities and colleges.
