That should make us Tier 1 under Princeton Review, which is comparable to USN&WR, if not more respected. So, we should both be able to boast.

    Let me make this point one more time...USNWR ranks Tech higher...Princeton Review and Washington Monthly rank UL higher....all rankings are incredibly subjective....both Universities use these rankings to benefit themselves....more power to them....the reality is in the academic world, SREB rates both as 4 year 2 (Doctoral 2) and Carnegie rates both as RU/H....both are fine Universities...

    Looks like you are correct on this one. 3rd best behind the Saints and a surprising LSU offense.

    It happened 50 years sooner. UL has been the 2nd largest pubic school in the State since the late 1937 or 38.

    UL's growth led to the establishment of McNeese in 1939.

    LSU's enrollment is up too.

    I think both UL and LSU's increases are a reflection of increased graduation rates.

    Especially, any correlation between athletic success and enrollment.

    For the vast majority of colleges/universities, athletic success can not be directly correlated with increased enrollment. There are always exceptions, usually short-term, but not trends.
    UL received a tremendous amount of advertising during the Brian Michell and again during the Jake Delhomme era.

    UL also benefited from the oil field population influx and a substantial foreign student population.

    But don't just look at growth look at atrophy, coming off Jake Delhomme's career the student body stood at 17,020. Over the next 5 years ( Stokley's unfortunate 1997 season and the Baldwin era) it gradually fell to 15,489.

    Admissions also became more selective.

    True, but as we learned this week, the school with the buzz, gets the student body bounce.

    I'm sure T-Joe looked at selective admissions history when predicting a drop, but I wonder if he looked at the front porch success part of the equation.

    Boomz, your hilarious man! There was an interesting article today in the S'Port Times today about Payscale from recent college grads from Tech, LSU, etc .You might want to check it out. Sorry, I'm currently unable to link to it.

    All I said was that according to your stats you have lost 5% of your enrollment in the last 2 years!!! Where was pay of alumni even brought up?? So the hilarious assumption is in regard to WHAT??? And yes if your grads have all this money in salary coming in---start your end zone project that has been on hold for "Lack of MONEY"---Yea I guess I am pretty damn funny at times!!! But more so in this case very much on target with my assumptions and facts!!!

    Payscale is based on self-reported, not scientifically drawn data. Interesting to read, but not valid. Next.

    UL or Louisiana total enrollment for 2013 Fall Semester is 18,235!!!

    The University of Louisiana is among the top three "smartest" public universities in the state.

    Read More ➝
    First-time freshmen and transfer student enrollment at the University of Louisiana is up 3 percent for Fall 2013 over last year, despite a second year of tougher admissions standards.

    The number of first-time freshmen who entered for the fall semester is 2,565, up 3 percent from the previous fall's 2,483 first-time freshmen. New transfer student enrollment was 807, an increase of 24 percent, or 156 more students than Fall 2012.

    Dr. DeWayne Bowie, UL vice president for Enrollment Management, said there were some decreases in re-entry students and the number of first-time freshmen who entered in the summer session. He said those declines did not affect the overall enrollment because they were offset by increases in other areas, such as first-time graduate students, online degree programs, and high school dual enrollment numbers.

    The University's regular enrollment remains stable, with 16,647 for the Fall 2013 semester. Last year, the enrollment was 16,687, a difference of 40 students. The university also is enrolling a number of students in professional programs and credit-bearing continuing education for a Fall 2013 total enrollment of 18,235.

    "Upon increasing our academic standards last year, we anticipated a possible decline in the number of eligible students," Bowie said. "However, in the last two years, we worked hard to grow our enrollment while attracting the most academically talented students we've ever enrolled."

    The Fall 2013 freshmen class includes 102 high school valedictorians, up from last year's 87. The average high school GPA is 3.3 and the average ACT composite score is 23.10.

    University President Dr. Joseph Savoie said enrolling better-prepared students improves student retention and graduation rates. The University's graduation rate recently rose from 41 to 44 percent. While UL has maintained the third-highest graduation rate among public universities in Louisiana, he said he would like to increase that rate to 50 percent in four years.

    In addition to attracting students who are better prepared academically, the University is welcoming more students from around the globe. There are 1,198 out-of-state students.

    The number of new international students has increased by 25 percent since last year, and grew by 49 percent since 2011. New international student enrollment for Fall 2013 is 156 students, compared to 125 in Fall 2012, and 105 in Fall 2011. The total international student enrollment is 695.

    "Increased global perspectives, on-campus living-learning environments, and abundant academic support services foster the success of all of our students," Savoie said.

    In August, Washington Monthly magazine ranked UL as the fourth-best university in the nation at helping lower-income students earn degrees and the overall no. 102 university in the nation in its annual college guide. The Princeton Review cited UL as one of the nation's best 378 institutions for undergraduate education.
