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!

My name is Lauren Morgan, and I am honored to represent LSUA. As an admissions counselor, I strive to make students immediately feel at home on campus. LSUA is exceptional; it offers such a rigorous academic environment while also promoting a sense of approachability between students and professors. The small classes, extracurricular opportunities, and first rate facilities are only a few of the reasons students are so attracted to our campus. We are, indeed, "close to home" but "far from ordinary."

LSUA has a family feel like no other and has stolen my heart since 2012. During my time as a student at LSUA, I was a part of various clubs and organizations, was a member of the Dean’s List, was crowned Ms. LSUA, and received my Bachelor’s degree in General Studies. I made countless friends that will last a lifetime, memories that I will never forget, and found a HOME. LSUA is the true definition of “Endless Possibilities,” and I am dedicated to helping every prospective student find success. Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding anything on campus.
