Despite talk of budget cuts to public colleges and TOPS, a record 23,000 students have applied for entry at LSU for the academic year that starts in August. The school’s chief enrollment officer, Jose Aviles, says they hope for an incoming freshman class of 5,800, but TOPS funding is a factor.
"Nothing is set until they put the deposit down and say 'yes I'm in fact attending LSU," Aviles said. "There's a lot of phone calls coming into our office about the uncertainty about TOPS, so we are concerned about that for sure."

If the legislature decides to cut its way through the billion dollar budget gap, private health care providers warn the consequences would be dire. If the Department of Health sustains the kinds of cuts being discussed, public-private facilities would be on the chopping block. Our Lady of the Lake President Scott Wester says those cuts would mean the end of their partnership with the state, LSU, and LDH.

The Ragin Cajuns are ready for tonight’s NIT match-up versus LSU. Cajuns coach Bob Marlin says it’s great to play in Baton Rouge, but he believes they should be seeded higher than LSU and the home team.
"Our RPI is much better, our record is much better and we feel like our gym is much better. We have the second best record in the tournament out of 32 teams."
