This Saturday, November 6, saw Northwestern State University hosting approximately 500 high school students and their families who visited our university for a day of fun and learning about the many opportunities afforded by Northwestern. The visitors had a busy day attending presentations on financial aid, tours, and a browsing session in which the visiting students and their families met with representatives from the university’s academic departments. The N-Side View event closed with NSU treating the future Demons to an exciting victory in the football game against Houston Baptist University.
Northwestern State University offers a myriad of opportunities to build your future with over 60 programs and concentrations ranging from certificates to doctorates. Two NSU alumni, Gary Fields and Jim Mustien, have won Pulitzer Prizes, one of the premier awards in Journalism. Over the past several years, NSU pre-meds have achieved a notable 50-60% acceptance rate into medical school.

The Louisiana Scholars’ College features a great books-based curriculum that offers a quality liberal arts education at a fraction of the price of a private college.
