Colleges in Louisiana

Louisiana is one of the most multicultural and diverse states in the entire country, both in terms of its landscape and its people, thanks in large part to the ever-changing Mississippi River and its mix of French, Spanish, Native American, and African history.


There are 46 colleges in Louisiana, 35 public and 11 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. Louisiana has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.


Louisiana State University is the largest public university system in the state, and its flagship campus (officially known as the Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College) is located in Baton Rouge. In 2012, LSU was ranked 128th among national universities and 63rd among public universities by the U.S. News & World Report. The E. J. Ourso College of Business is also highly-regarded.


Other LSU system institutions include Louisiana State University-Alexandria, Louisiana State University-Eunice, and Louisiana State University-Shreveport.


The University of Louisiana System has 9 member institutions, including Grambling State University, a historically black public university, Louisiana Tech University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University of Louisiana, Southeastern Louisiana University, University of Louisiana-Lafayette, University of Louisiana-Monroe, and University of New Orleans.


Other Louisiana colleges include Tulane University, Dillard University, those belonging to the Southern University system, and many more.
