Facilities: The campus at Louisiana College is great. Especially if students like to be in a small community. The school isn't to big nor to small and lets the students stay focused with there studies. Louisiana College also has a great student union (The Student Center) where any student can find tons of help for their preferred major. The students can also find a burger shack (The Grille), a coffee shop (Java City), post office, bookstore, nurse and the game room. This is the most popular place to hang out if living on campus.

Facilities: There are tons of oportunities to get involved. Many of the buildings are outdated, yet close in proximity for walking.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Louisiana College Is what you make it! There are countless opportunities to get involved with the campus and school activities. The school buildings are a little outdated, however it seems to add a homey feel to the school. Many students like to hangout in the student center and game room. They play calming christian music in the background and offer food, couches, pool tables, ping pong, coffee, and an outside porch. Many students study here, however there is not a designated private study area. I enjoy Louisiana College, and appreciate the small and personal atmosphere there.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: God First – One big thing Louisiana College focuses on is putting God first to achieve success.

With the exception of Hattie B’s, Cavanaugh, the library, and H. O. West, the individual buildings on LC’s campus are beautifully built. The campus as a whole, however, suffers aesthetically because the landscaping is very poor. The bushes are wild and randomly placed, the few flower beds are empty or poorly cared for, and the grassy spaces are either shaggy with weeds or full of dirt patches. Inside, the classrooms and administration buildings are kept clean and orderly. The administration tries to update classroom equipment and décor as frequently as possible. Plans are being considered for a medical school, a law school, a new library, and a new cafeteria, but so far, these facilities only exist on paper. The cafeteria is probably the worst building on campus. The staff does a good job of keeping the dining area clean, but the areas around the buffet lines, drink dispensers, and the conveyor belt for dirty dishes are always messy.

LC’s student athletic facilities are of very high quality considering the size of the school. The new football and soccer stadium has top of the line artificial turf, and the basketball practice gym, which is open to students, just had a new floor put in. Plus, the Health Plex recently updated all their cardio equipment. The dorms are also clean, for the most part. English Village has a roach and cricket problem every once in a while, and Tudor and Church Hall have a distinct odor, but maintenance does a good job of cleaning the bathrooms and hallways. Your room is your own responsibility. Many students think that the dorms could use some work, but in comparison with other schools in the state, the dorms are actually a little above average when it comes to size and amenities.

"Green" Initiatives
Every Tuesday and Thursday, the Hattie B. Strother Cafeteria goes "trayless." This is supposed to save water, but as this is the only "green" initiative on campus, it doesn't have much of an effect. Students are more annoyed by it than anything else.
School Slang
  • CC100: College Connection, the required freshman orientation class
  • Dead Day: The Wednesday before finals kick off. No classes are held, so students either cram or party
  • The FAB: Weathersby Fine Arts Building
  • Hattie B's: Hattie B. Strother Cafeteria
  • MPAC: The Martin Performing Arts Center
  • Napple: Chapel - if you're tired
  • Net 50: A popular competition at halftime of basketball games where students play knockout for a chance to win fifty bucks
  • The Quad: The wooded area between Hixson Student Center and Alexandria Hall
  • Winter Holiday: The school's "politically correct" term for Mardi Gras break
Traditions
  • April Fool's Fountain Prank: Every year on April Fool's Day, somebody pranks the fountain in front of Alexandria Hall. Bubbles, hundreds of rubber ducks, Kool-Aid... and Security has yet to catch a pranker.
  • Homecoming Tricycle Race: Every year during homecoming, students and alumni compete in a tricycle race around the campus circle.
  • IHOP Thursdays: It's official: Thursday night is IHOP night. LC students flock to the all-night restaurant to fill up on pancakes, omelettes, and iced coffee.
  • LC Hammer: The LC Hammer is carried at every football game. It is painted orange and blue, and the team and fans gather around it as a rallying point.
  • Midnight Breakfast: Sometimes called the Twilight Breakfast, this late-night finals treat actually occurs at 11 p.m. on Dead Day in Hattie B's. Faculty members in pajamas serve pancakes to students to help them prepare for the upcoming days of exams.
  • Mom's Weekend TP'ing: Mom's Weekend is already a special event, but it is made even more memorable by the traditional toilet papering of Cottingham Forest. A team of 5 or 6 guys spends hours covering every bare branch with yards of toilet paper. The effect is amazing, but bits of toilet paper linger throughout the rest of the Fall semester and into the Spring.
  • The Movie Theater Skit: Every year during Wildcat Welcome Week, the members of the Student Orientation Staff perform the one, the only, the insanely awkward Movie Theater Skit. An honorable mention also goes out to the Doll Skit and the Peanut Butter Skit.
  • The Spring Gnome Hunt: Every Spring semester, students participate in a campus-wide gnome hunt. Small garden gnomes are hidden all over campus. If you find one, you can turn it in to Student Development for a prize.
Urban Legends
  • If you sit on the white swing outside Cottingham with your significant other, you will be married before you graduate. This story has been confirmed-Dr. Aguillard, LC's president, is living proof!
  • Richard W. Norton Memorial Library is haunted by the ghost of Richard Norton himself. He is buried under the Great Seal in front of the circulation desk and rises up at night to eat the souls of those with overdue books.
  • The attic in Cottingham is supposedly haunted by the ghost of a girl who hanged herself in the elevator shaft. The elevator is now sealed off, but if you're lucky enough to sneak into the attic, you can see her suicide note painted in white on the beam beside the pulley.
Favorite Things To Do
Most students leave campus to have fun, but the RA staff provides activites each month, including game nights, competitions, and movie nights. The game room located in the Hixson Student Center is a popular hangout, as is English Village Commons, where students frequently gather to play Rockband and Guitar Hero. Intramural sports are extremely popular.

Clubs and Organizations on Campus
If you want to really experience campus life and become a part of the college, you should think about joining one of LC's active student organizations. The largest group on campus is the Baptist Collegiate Ministry. The BCM sponsors cookouts, game nights, Bible studies, mission trips, and retreats each semester, and the BCM office is a popular hangout. Another active group is the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which is entirely student-led and open to everyone. FCA organizes weekly devotionals and service projects. Other popular clubs include the SGA, Union Board, the Creative Writing Group, and Amnesty International. New clubs are fairly easy to create, but recruiting students to join may slow you down. Most students are only interested in the existing campus organizations.
