An accomplished group of 45 high school students and their families came to learn more about the Louisiana Scholars’ College and the opportunities it offers at the school’s Fall Scholars’ Day held at NSU’s Morrison Hall Saturday, November 16. The students attended sample classes and a panel discussion with current students, while their parents had their own panel with faculty and student representatives.
The future scholars also learned of an exciting new opportunity offered by the Scholars’ College and NSU’s graduate school. Qualified students may enroll in the new 5 year program and graduate with a BA in Humanities and Social Thought from the Scholars’ College as well as a MA in English from NSU.
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 more than 120 students in the college 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.
