Campaign for Student Housing at Louisiana College
“...the founding of the College exerted a singular influence in the unifying of the denomination. ”
“...for long ago the Convention determined that at all costs that (Louisiana) College must live.”
“In every instance since its inception the Convention has responded with one voice. ”
- Glen Lee Greene

The Churches that make up the Louisiana Baptist Convention have supported Louisiana College since the beginning of our institution in 1906. Today, meeting the needs identified for Student Housing at Louisiana College are more important than ever. For LC to recruit the best and brightest our Student Housing Facilities must be renovated. Please take the time today to Pray for Louisiana College as we prepare future Christian Leaders and Pledge to the Capital Campaign for Student Housing at Louisiana College.
Louisiana College and the Louisiana Baptist Convention find themselves joining in one of the most monumental opportunities in the history of the lives of each institution. Louisiana College, "The Pride of Louisiana Baptists", has experienced tremendous growth in the last few years and finds itself in great need of renovating and improving its student housing. Not only has the College outgrown its capacity for student demand for housing, but some of our dormitories like Cottingham Hall haven't been upgraded for over 70 years. Student housing is the number one need on our campus. Along with the growth of the College coupled with the need for updating of these aging facilities, the Convention and College have the opportunity to repeat what they did in 1971 when the two entities came together to fund and build Guinn Auditorium. Louisiana College is challenged in growth and retention of students because of inappropriate housing. We have the finest faculty and staff to be found anywhere. The College is graduating young men and women who are truly dedicating their lives to LC's Mission, "to change the world for Christ." We have no choice but to provide a comfortable and decent place for our students to live while receiving the best Christian education to be found anywhere. Our partnership will transform our College and Convention for generations to come and will allow us to remain, "the Pride of Louisiana Baptists."
