    UL struggles to get good support because on Saturdays the majority of students are in places like Opelousas, Breaux Bridge, Kaplan, Abbeville, New Iberia, Crowley.....A small minority of students are actually in Lafayette on the weekend. Until someone can figure out how to get the commuter students involved and engaged our school will always struggle with student support which turns into good Alumni support.

    UL is not a ____ing commuter school. Georgia Southern is a commuter school because they're in the middle of ATL.

    Louisiana is definitely a commuter school.

    UL has more students on campus than ever before. This is a good mixture of both on campus and not.

    …..and the huge # that live technically off campus but in housing very close…..it is cool for LSU students to go to games and not cool enough for UL students yet….it is really sad about this but it exists…..a to the point interview with members of the student body could reveal the causes…..also interviews with various age group alumni in the Lafayette area might give some answers!

    Georgia Southern is in Statesboro. Georgia State is in Atlanta.

    Actually we do not have more students than ever. We have suffered an enrollment decline like most universities in the nation. For Awhile, we had a hiring freeze implemented.

    Good point. I have a niece at UL right now living near campus and has only been to 1 UL home game in 2 years. They just don't go. Hoping to get her to a few this year. We as alumni and season ticket holders cannot give up on getting them to the games!
    Longest win streak in the country!

    As some one who grew up in NI and drove transit buses and worked in the parking and transit office in school I'd have to disagree. First you ever see how may busses run every day to drive commuter students from cajun field to campus?

    Secondly when I gradated from high school lets say between CHS and NISH there were 120 kids coming to school here, I guarantee no more than 20 of them actually moved to Lafayette. And that is a very generous number. Not to mention the fact that while living in the dorm for the first 2 semesters on the weekend it was a ghost town. On Friday there was a mass exodus and they didn't come back until Sunday.

    While I don’t have any idea how much of an issue this is, I would say it’s true about attrition out of Louisiana being a problem overall. It’s quite depressing to think about sometimes, as I’m one of those and understand the reality.
