NSU online general studies program ranked second in country

Northwestern State University’s online Bachelor of General Studies has been ranked as the number two program in the country by onlineschoolsreport.com.

The website ranked programs in 10 areas based on student satisfaction, admission rate, online presence, popularity at school, department size and median debt by program. Data sources include the National Center for Education Statistics and the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard.

According to Executive Director of Academic Advising Steve Hicks, Northwestern State’s general studies curriculum provides flexibility to allow the student’s program to adapt to particular interests, background, time limitations and ultimate career goals. Hicks said a general studies degree “is especially appropriate for a mature person who has, as result of various educational and work experiences, a clear focus and strong commitment to a particular course of study.”

The Committee also organized a Spring and Fall Trash Bash, encouraging Parish residents to get out and pick up trash. Adults and youth groups, alike, participated, selecting their neighborhood roads and highways, bringing these areas back to the inherent beauty of our parish.

NSU to honor Carley McCord with scholarship

NSU to honor Carley McCord with scholarship

Carley McCord

The Northwestern State University family came together in grief following the tragic loss of alumna Carley McCord, a wellknown sports journalist and digital media reporter who was one of five people killed in a plane crash in Lafayette Saturday, Dec. 28. Friends remembered McCord as a remarkable and involved student who stayed in touch with her NSU family and was a devoted Demon supporter.

McCord, 30, earned a degree in journalism at NSU in 2011. As an undergraduate, she worked in NSU’s Recruiting Office for four years where she was a Student Ambassador and gave tours to prospective students.

“She was driven, energetic and was out to set the world on fire,” said Jana Lucky, NSU’s former director of Recruiting, now director of Enrollment Services. “Carley was very determined, but also kind and genuine. She was well-known in sports media throughout the state and always used the hashtag #womeninsports. She was a loyal Demon.”
