    LSUS cutting hours and programs?

    Anyone else heard about LSUS transitioning all masters and higher to online degrees and cutting hours back?

    My sister has an LSUS intern at her office and this was from the student.

    I don't know if it is true, but this is what they fought for. Plenty of faculty and staff jumped up and down to remain a part of the lsu system, thinking that they would be taken care of. Every red flag was there to tell them that it couldn't happen, and the merger with Tech would have benefitted everyone. Now, Louisiana Tech will have a Shreveport campus without them, they will continue to see reduced funding from the mother ship, and enrollment will likely drop. Egg on lots of faces.

    I wish them the best, but this is bad for them.

    At around this point last year...

    LSUS students protest merger
    -KTAL

    In a statement released by LSUS, Chancellor Dr. Vincent Marsala says, "The obvious weakness of the merger is the reckless speed with which it has been proposed." The statement goes on to question the lack of planning or agreement on how such a merger would affect programs, employment, or students, and goes on to say that "LSUS is being eliminated, a "take over" as it is being called by some, with a Tech Campus being created in Shreveport but located primarily in Ruston."

    I don't feel bad for them especially after the stuff they said at my sisters graduation last year.

    Let 'em Rot. We should move on and refuse to have any part of anything associated with LSUS. It will become nothing more than a two year community college before this is over.

    That picture says a lot. The people of north Louisiana just do not grasp the view that south Louisiana people have of our part of the state. Pretending to be a tiger when you are a pilot is pretty pathetic...especially when the tigers don't give a damn about you or your school.

    Oh well, they got what they wished for. The enrollment at the Louisiana Tech - Shreveport campus will pass LSUS enrollment within a year or two. And, more of the students will actually graduate.

    Just wait until LG takes over the reins. He's honed in on the S'port/BC/Cyber/Engineering BPCC project. I have heard rumors that BPCC and Tech are getting closer and closer together, those 8K students have to go somewhere to complete their 4 year degree.

    Dhuss- that basically they are cutting hours and that LSU wants any higher degrees to be handled online instead of at LSUS. I assume to cut professors job/hours etc. I assume the idea is to bleed off as much money and interest as possible.

    this was from a current LSUS student now interning in my sisters office In Marshall.

    LSU-S is so wierd. I've taken quite a few classes at UT-Arlington and none of those students think they are Longhorns. Don't know why the LSU-S students seem to think they are Tiggers.

    Re: LSUS cutting hours and programs?

    It's a part of the state that is grasping at anything for an identity. I grew up in Shreveport and the only thing they had that they truly called their own were the captains.

    Instead of just being Shreveport, they so want to market themselves as part of the tigger fiefdom. That's how LSU sees them too, as serfs.
