    Not sure what Tech and ULM are claiming, but ULM has a little more than half the students UL has. I know because I went there for two years. Tech is probably the same size as UL if I had to guess, a whole bunch of Shreveport kids.

    I don't know WHERE you are getting these numbers from.

    http://www.ulsystem.net/assets/docs/...ment_20081.pdf

    From the UL System.

    ULL 16,320 Down .15%
    Tech 10,950 Up 3%
    ULM 8,767 Up 2.5%

    I believe these figures are only undergraduates. Could be wrong though.

    This is a GREAT IDEA Re: Enrollment

    I know SLCC has had a major pump in students over the summer. That could have something to do w/ it.

    Also, your enrollment went down by 25 students.

    I wouldn't call that statistically significant.

    Also. You're pulling this north LA population loss from thin air. There's no such thing, and even if there was, you wouldn't know it until the census is completed in 2010. I've never heard this. Ever.

    Ruston is growing, Shreveport is growing, and Monroe is relatively stable, if not dropping slightly. The Haynesville Shale, V-Vehicle plant, and other new industry that has recently come about in North LA will show the opposite trend.

    At least these figures look realistic compared to others I've seen recently!

    Good spelling, by the way.

    The article says that yes, we will lose a congressman, but not North Louisiana. The area covered by Assumption, Vermillion, Iberia, Iberville, Lafourche, and Terrebonne is split into two districts. It may be lumped into one district resulting in only 6 Congressman.

    Rep. Melancon is my congressman, and I've heard about this happening, as he will be struggling for one less seat. But North Louisiana is stable. Bossier parish especially is exploding.

    So if one looks at the huge jump of Lafayette

    is this why the stats are skewed the wrong way???? I am surprised at the loss of Shreveport!!!!

    If you are talking about your enrollment stats, then I think you are seeing something that isn't there.

    UL Lafayette lost 0.15% of enrollment, or 25 students. In a school of 16,000, that's a minor fluctuation, and is not statistically significant. Tech's increase of 400 (3%) is significant, but not quite so when compared to numbers through 2005. These numbers can fluctuate drastically from year to year. between 2007-2008, Tech experienced a decrease.

    And even though Lafayette is increasing in size, it doesn't mean that everyone in the school sends its students to your school.

    This is not to say that ULL is doing poorly. Its just a numbers game. They will fluxuate from time to time, and as long as its not a steady downward trend, there's no issue.

    Per our Pres---we finally have a great one

    we want to be at 21k in 3 years--this with a demography that isn't too good for Louisiana but seems to be great for lafayette!!! the stated reasons for this goal are one-- an increase in the number of older students getting a college degree in an area like Lafayette

    two--an increased ACT score from incoming Freshmen thank God for Catholic education--lol--We are the largest Catholic school in the nation

    -Large # of the local JCs continuing to UL along with LSUE--- and finally the retention of existing students!!!!! We have stepped up recruiting big time and it will show this year both in under gaduate and Graduate students

    --Also a much more inviting campus with the recent beautification program!!!!!

    Louisiana Re: Enrollment

    Andre's new plan for LA Higher Education. It will be hard on some at first, but eventually we will all come to love it and like it; and realize that it is for the best of the state.


    InstitutionFall 2008Fall 2010
    Grambling State University5253at LTU
    Louisiana Tech University1095024970
    McNeese State University8294at UL
    Nicholls State University6926at UL
    Northwestern State University91119111
    Southeastern Louisiana University1522415224
    University of Louisiana1632031540
    University of Louisiana at Monroe8767at LTU
    University of Louisiana System8084580845


    I know this is not possible as LTU & UL's campus' cannot handle this many students at this time. But what if a plan was developed to slowly shut down these four univerities and build up the other four? Start building new buildings now, I'm running for Governor......later on!

    Oh yeah the LSU and SU systems will HATE THIS for sure! Screw them, I'm in charge now.

    We have the most graduate students behind lsua&mc@br because we also have the most graduate programs behind that same institution.

    No way we get to 21K in three years. Only a federal program where people would get free tuition would we get that kind of increase. I think getting to 17K in 3 years is a reasonable goal.
    As for the catholic thing. Here in NOLA people are shelling out big bucks for school. Most people I know have hopes for their kids getting into prestigeous out-of-state programs. If you look at the HS marketing material...that is what they are selling. Even LSU is not the end game for most of these kids.

    I didn't know that we were a Catholic University. That means that we should play Notre Dame & Boston College and the like every season. Funny, i don't remember going to any religion or Christian Ed classes when I was enrolled at USL. I do know that a larger portion of CENLA has begun to come to UL than there has been before, thats another demographic where recruiting needs to be done, academics and athletics.
