NATCHITOCHES – Students, faculty, staff and administrators from Northwestern State University will join other representatives from the nine universities in the University of Louisiana System for ULS Day at the Capital Wednesday, April 19.

 The ULS Day at the Capitol is intended to create awareness of higher education issues, particularly funding for higher education and restructuring of the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS). 

Students will participate in a lunch with legislators, group photos on the capitol steps and recognition of ULS Day in the House and Senate chambers.

Northwestern State’s Student Government Association and University Advancement will charter two buses to transport students. Spirit groups will also participate.
