LSU Shreveport hosts its 2011 welcome week activities outside the University Center.

Prospective students of LSU Shreveport have until Wednesday to apply to the school to be considered for the Free Ride scholarship program for fall semester. The incentive that launched in November covers tuition at LSUS, when combined with the state-funded merit scholarship known as TOPS. LSUS officials say about half of the students admitted for fall have been offered a free ride scholarship, and the program could be credited for stabilizing enrollment.
