LSUE - Building C-105K

I am a proud 2006 LSUA graduate. LSUA is a diverse college. No matter your age, race, gender or nationality you will feel welcome here. We value different backgrounds and treat one another with dignity and respect. I work as an Enrollment Specialist, with an office on the LSUE (Eunice) campus. One of my main goals is to serve as an information resource to potential students and assist prospective transfer students by meeting with them individually and discussing course choices. I encourage each student to take advantage of everything available to you, ask questions, and ask questions. Reach out for support and encouragement, it’s all at your fingertips!

Originally from Mississippi, LSUA has grown to become my “home away from home”. LSUA has a family-feel and supportive faculty and staff that motivate each student to be the best they can be. Because of the never-ending support on campus, I was able to receive a degree from LSUA in 2016. Now I am dedicated to helping every student feel welcome, confident about college, and most importantly, achieve their goals of success, like I did at LSUA. Feel free to contact me directly with any questions you may have.
