Dr. Chris Maggio addressing the Winn Parish Retired Teachers Association

President Tommy Bankston and forty-five educators of the Winn Parish Retired Teachers Association gathered eagerly at the first meeting of the new school year to hear Dr. Chris Maggio, President of Northwestern University discuss the immense progress achieved by NSU. Dr. Maggio praised the teamwork of his faculty and expressed appreciation of their encouragement, support, and dedication.

Student enrollment reached 10,900 and 11,081 in the last two years, a remarkable achievement. Northwestern campuses can be found in Natchitoches, Shreveport, Alexandria, and Leesville. Other sites include Bossier Parish Community College, Barksdale, Marksville and Deridder. Also, NSU is the first university to embrace online learning. All these opportunities for intellectual growth are critical for Louisiana residents, since only 22% have a college degree.
