Yep. It's ingrained in the culture. It's the same mentality that makes people throw their trash out the window and trash up the roads there. Broken window analogy applies.

this is why Lousisiana is a huge failure of a state

What is going on right now has been pushed down the line for the last 20 years now. None of the governors wanted to face the music and be the bad guy.

ETA: probably closer to the last 30 years

I think I saw this on here before but isn't the Law School on a seperate budget than the rest of LSU?

Just wondering as I may be attending soon...

also quite disheartening to see the lack of overall concern from people on this board. It mirrors the overall lack of concern you see from the general population of Louisiana. Unless it's about partying or LSU football.


And most is not just lack of concern but lack of intelligence to see the value of the state flagsip school.

Politics won't allow McNeese, Nichols, Grambling,Southern, Northeastern, Northwestern, La Tech, UL Lafayette become two year feeder school which several of the above listed need to be.

I agree. And the lack of overall concern from students, alumni,..and how about the freaking government? How are they bypassing their consciences so easily and collectively? If I were a membr of the house, I would be ashamed of myself.

Why should the government bankroll lsu? So lsu can be mediocre and not hafta compete for students?


Theres tons of fat to be cut at lsu. If I was the president, I'd cut all the liberal arts programs and focus all money on business, engineering, and sciences with medical applications.

Let those liberal arts wusses go to school in San Francisco or Richard Simmonsland where they belong

After being on the professional staff at LSU, I really don't feel sorry for the chancellor, deans or department heads. I saw so much waste at LSU, in the form of both time and money, that it really became a weight on my concious and one of the reasons I left. If the university had better leadership and state purchasing wasn't such a joke, LSU could not only survive the budget cuts, but could likely thrive where other universities are suffering. They have all dug themselves into this hole, and it's the students and lower level staff/faculty that will suffer for it. Absolutely a shame.

lsu can handle the cuts because they can raise tuition to make up for it.

Louisiana doesn't need grambling, la. tech, and NWLA all open as four year universities in the northwest corner of the state .. pick one and drop the other two to two-year feeder JUCOs .. and clean up the mess in NOLA ..

looks like typical politics. house trying to "send a message" probably knowing the senate wouldn't back it. done the wrong way but the house does have a point that the one time payment to LSU doesn't fix the long term problem. it's a band aid. it keeps some programs alive for now but then what? gotta love politicians using scare tactics.

Oh yeah, let's do away with our resources and the things that attract people to go to our school. You're saying if they cut funding that getting into LSU will be more competitive? Please

It's not a private institution-it's a public university. Keep that in mind.

I really don't see how our state reps don't see this as a better option.

because they are retarded.

they can also make cuts without affecting education at all, but god forbid making some brokeass pay for pain pills and doctor visits.

LSU always takes the spotlight here, but from my experience there, I would say Northwestern is the best school in Louisiana. I would argue that we should make LSU the feeder school and Northwestern the flagship
