Our students represent a global, inclusive society. A student body comprised of first-generation students blazing trails, Louisiana natives learning at their land-grant university, out-of-state students immersing themselves in Cajun culture, and international students soaring to new heights in a new country. We learn from one another and contribute to a path forward. We believe in a future that’s better than our past, and that starts with you.
