    UL has a legacy scholarship for out of state students that waives a substantial portion of the out of state tuition. Cancel that, and you can expect some major donations to dry up from successful out-of-state alumni ... sorta of what is happening at LSU.
    Also, the waiving of out-of-state tuition is overwhelming due to academic scholarships - good grades and high test scores of out-of-state students.

    Tulane had the most applications in the country, yes. This is largely due to their abolition of the application fee. That being said, Tulane has been getting a lot of good press since Katrina and is thus a fashionable school. Plus, New Orleans is a unique place.

    I agree, though, with the "Ivy League" reject comment.

    I am an alum of both TU and UL, and Tulane has made a concerted effort to reach out to Louisiana students. I'm quite certain my scholarship was given in large part because I am from Louisiana. I don't know why this would be important post-Katrina, but it does make sense, in general, to have students from in-state to push back against the blindly pro-LSU legislature.

    As for UL, it was my understanding when I was a student there that that it had one of the highest percentage of in-state students in the country. (I always looked at this as a plus.) Of course, we're paying to educate many of these people for jobs in Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta (this goes for UL, LSU and I'm sure most state schools). If the goal is to get more out of state students, boosting athletics, I'm sure, would work. That being said, it's interesting that none of the SEC schools except Alabama attract many out of staters. Athletics is the front-porch of a school though. Outside of that, highlighting the culture in Lafayette would be a draw. Usually, you see a couple of alligators and cypress trees and I'm sure people not from the area think we're all right out of Swamp People. It would be prudent to highlight the nightlife, which I would say ranks up there with most any college town, as well as the art and music scene.

    Note that I said students not on scholarship. I also said that we should not subsidize in state students by keeping tuition at levels less than 1/2 that at similar universities in neighboring states.

    OK there has to be a reason

    BUT

    We are looking to go to 20K ---Why not as a kind of an Economics strategy let an out-of-state kid pay the same as Louisiana kids and keep the money in tuition and total fees that they would pay????? Say we get a thousand more from this plan ---What is wrong with taking in MORE money????

    Why are you all miffed by this? It's a good problem. Demand for on campus housing is huge. You grow your fan and alumni base by shedding the commuter school image

    Forget the reason, this is a great PR opportunity.

    The article said they'd be moving to the new dorm (Huger I think) that should be finished about Thanksgiving for the spring semester. This dorm also has about 464 beds.

    Where are the athletes living these days, in a new dorm? I thought I read that they were moving into a new dorm on one of these threads. Athletic housing was a huge recruiting deal a couple of years ago. Has that been fully resolved?

    There are no separate "athletic" dorms any longer, courtesy of the NCAA. Athletes use the same dorm spaces as all other students, hence increased dorm capacity (from about 1300 to 3000 I think) benefits all students equally.

    There was a post in the Campus Construction thread stating the FB & soccer players were moving in to New Baker on 8/3

    I understand, but which dorm are they now living in? It used to be the Conference Center (old Agnes Edwards), I believe. It was a recruiting nightmare and renovations of the floors they lived on were to have started a year or so ago. Just wondering the status. Do all athletes live in one dormitory along with other students or are they spread across all campus dorms?

    I don't think there's a specific dorm. I know some of the softball, track, and football players live in the conference center. I also saw photos of some players checking into the new Baker Hall last week.
