The University of Louisiana System’s Board of Supervisors granted approval to NSU’s tenure and promotion recommendations yesterday. Congratulations to the 11 faculty members from Northwestern State University for attaining tenure, and to the 14 individuals who have secured promotions for the 2023-2024 academic year.

We are thrilled to welcome counselors and administrators from the surrounding parishes of Zone 6 to our campus today for the annual articulation workshop. Their pivotal role in aiding these students, as well as our recruitment efforts for their next educational endeavor, is greatly appreciated.

Congratulations to the Department of Military Science on their great start to the new academic year marked by their Activation Ceremony which occurred this Thursday. Their recruiting efforts have paid off in their largest freshman class in the last 25 years.

We take great pride in the numerous summer accomplishments of our Cadets. These achievements range from successfully completing Advanced and Basic Camps to observing Army officers in active duty units, gaining insights into their operational methods and training procedures.

Also, when you see Cadet Loren Higginbotham and Cadet Caiden Matthews around campus, please congratulate them on making it through “The Ten Toughest Days in the Army” to earn their Air Assault wings!
