Louisiana Scholars’ College held spring Scholars’ Day Feb. 23.Louisiana Scholars’ College, or LSC, is the state’s only designated honors college. The college is at Northwestern State University. The spring Scholars’ Day is held for prospective students to let them tour the campus. 42 students attended, with the majority being high school seniors. Students that attended had the opportunity to sample Scholars’ classes, like Text and Traditions, a four semester core curriculum class. Students toured Morrison Hall, University Place II and then visited an organizational browse which showcased the various organizations at Louisiana Scholars’ College. While parents sat in on a panel hosted by current students about college life and the transition from leaving home, prospective students attended a question-and-answer panel with current LSC students.
Prospective students and parents were then treated to lunch made by the Culinary Arts Department students and department head, Connie Jones.Assistant Director of Recruiting at NSU for LSC Lynda Hammett said, “The biggest challenge about spring Scholars’ Day is that LSC is such a small school that no one knows about it, yet, it is one of the best schools in Louisiana for liberal arts due to the value of education you get for your money.” She added that she hopes the class of 2017 will grab all the opportunities they receive because they may lead them in the right direction.
