Since opening its classrooms to students in 1967, LSUS has become the regional urban comprehensive university in the Shreveport-Bossier metropolitan area. Anchored along the picturesque Red River in southeast Shreveport, the beautifully landscaped LSUS campus serves as home to more than 4,500 students.
“We have nearly 40 undergraduate degree programs and a dozen master’s degree programs,” Chancellor Vincent Marsala said. “Our highly qualified faculty is evidenced in the fact that over 75% hold doctoral degrees in their discipline, and our student-teacher ratio is one of the lowest in the State.”
Student access to technology is a top priority. All classrooms have Internet connections – well above the national average of 64 percent – and Moodle, an online course management system, makes course material available to students 24/7. In all, students can sit down in front of nearly 1,000 computers in subject-specific labs, high-traffic areas such as Noel Memorial Library and The Port restaurant, and a campus-wide computer lab with extended hours.
