NSU Scholars' College nurtures liberal arts atmosphere, despite budget cuts

Twenty-five years after the creation of the Scholars' College at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, freshmen enrollment has almost reached its highest point. Director T. Davina McClain says with a small liberal arts college feel, students find they can get a bargain in a bachelor's degree. She says being unencumbered by debt allows Scholars' College students to pursue more costly graduate programs.
