    When were those votes. Most fees that have been voted for over the past ten years have passed.

    i.e. Union, Auxillary fee, Band Cheerleaders.

    Do you remember?

    Not sure, but these numbers came straight from my Spring 2011 Statement of Account.

    Lets have a vote on it then. If the students won't support such an initiative, then the situation is hopeless. It will be a decade or more before RCAF will raise the kind of money a $150-$200 per semester fee would raise.

    Here was a group of articles on the subject (written by Dan McDonald) way back in 2001 and 2002 LINK

    FIU charges $7.31 per hour just for football and another $6.90 per hour for the rest of the athletic department. FIU's football fee brings in $321,640 per credit hour and $3,859,680 per semester and $7,719,360 per year.

    Not some measly $15 bucks per semester, that is not a fee for athletics. Now if it were $15 per credit hour then I would agree that we have a fee, but we do not.

    Im all for a fee to help out athletics but I think the vote would be interesting especially due to the recent tuition increases and rumors of future increases. Then again, having been involved with stuff like this and the knowledge of how most of it works, in the past when these votes have come up very few students actually vote. I think only a few hundred actually voted for the New Union fee.

    That's not going to happen. Student Fees are allowed for facility improvements like the
    Moncla Indoor Field and student union. Those fees are temporary, not permanent. The UL-System board will not change the rules to allow student fees for funding athletic budgets. If you could get $150 per year, then you could use it along with bonds to pay off the stadium improvements. Of course you would need RCAF and others to help pay those bonds down over the next 10 years.

    I honestly think that is the route that UL should go. LSU did something similar while I was in school with a campus beautification fee of $100 in order to fund on campus improvements.

    I think we could implement a ten year $12.50 per credit hour fee to fund athletic facility improvements. That would enable UL to self fund nearly all of their athletic upgrades with student fee's. I know that is a lot to a poor student, but if UL athletics take off like I think they will in the next ten years then it will be all worth it. That fee would generate at or around $50M for facility enhancements.

    Default Student Migration

    Today's WSJ--10-25% of Louisiana'''s Freshmen come from out of state---Only Tex. Cal. Nev and Mich are lower at less than 10%---Fun if you are around ---just wondering how skewed this is with the Loyola and Tulane entering enrollments---Also does anybody know the UL percentage???? In the Southern states only Alabama has over 40%---Basic article was about the huge amount of out-of-state students that go to the 2 N. Dakota Universities!!!! On the map the line of states from Montana down to Arizona has the highest percentage!!!

    I've tried too look up a breakdown of where students come from (parish,state etc.) But UL's fact book doesn't list anything but the total number of freshman etc and if in state or out of state. I've done alittle research on the other state universities and most of their information is broken down extensively.

    As far as Tulane and Loyola, Tulane has A LOT of students from the northeast, It feels as though they try too hard to distance themselves away from louisiana students.. but what do I know.
    Loyola seems to have a good amount from Louisiana but keep in mind they only have a total student population of 1,500-2,000 I belive

    In the Morning Advocate yesterday, there was an article that LSU is down 20% in applications and expects its freshman class to be lower this year than last.

    The Chancellor was on the "hot seat" with the Board of Regents and he should have been. He was a "doom and gloom" forecaster of budget cuts and known in Baton Rouge as the "whiner."

    He attributed the reduction in applications and the drop in enrollment, at least partially, to LSU eliminating the Bengal Legacy Scholarship which brings in out-of-state students into the university from alumni.

    However, no stratification of students was provided.

    North Dakota has a nurse practioner degree which seems to be popular so I wonder if this might be a magnet. As for Loyola, when our two girls were there in the mid-90s(their mother's alma mater--Dominican--had been shuttered)there were closer to 3000 students. Being a Jesuit school, it had a group of Jesuit educated students from around the country, but for a private school had many Louisiana residents.

    Back in 1902, 03 and at least till 1911 the annual catalog as it was called back then (before the yearbook came out) listed the city, parish and state of each student.

    I wonder what percentage of the out of state students are paying out of state tuition. With the budget challenges we'll be faced with in the coming years, I would think that the practice of waiving out of state tuition, which all state universities do at times, will be eliminated. The citizens of Louisiana won't, and shouldn't, be willing to subsidize the college costs for out of state students.

    Tulane doesn't distance themselves from Louisiana students. Tulane has always attracted a pipeline of students from the northeast US. A friend (Louisiana resident) who went to Tulane told me that a lot of northeast kids that are kind of Ivy League rejects, target leaving the northeast and really like the New Orleans lifestyle. Their parents view Tulane as an acceptably prestigious school, but their main goal is to live the New Orleans eclectic lifestyle.

    Agreed. NE students come to NOLA to party. However, I think Katrina has caused Tulane to look much more w/i the state of LA.

    The battle for students and budget cuts are nationwide. I assume more students than ever will stay near the family home and resources. I'm not sure what the upside/downside is on the out of state student (break point on discounting their tuition just to get their enrollment) considering the higher education funding crisis.

    Even with out of state tuition, many students can attend UL for less than it would cost them to attend a public U in their home state. The tax payers of Louisiana should not subsidize the cost of attendance for ANY student not on scholarship. The tuition rates should mirror the actual cost of providing the service.
