    PLEASE feel free to post the public to my pictures of campus I took in March. So sad.

      Sophia,

      Just saw the pictures you have posted of the current LC campus. I had no idea. That’s so unacceptable!

    Website looks good.
    Spread the word.

      wow! Your pictures are great Sophia, we know married housing is awful, but it looks like the whole campus is going under. It looks like a lot of mold that needs power washing. Why is LC going to spend all that money in Shreveport refurbishing a building for a law school and the main campus is deteriorating? Joe take care of your house before you move on to other women!

    I can’t fathom why Joe Aguillard is still in power despite his unpopularity. Well, evidently he must be popular with someone to still be around.
    Informed students are constantly lamenting his leadership and even professors make bold asides during class discussions alluding to faults at LC.
    I love the people in my program at LC, and I worry for them. I worry that they may say the wrong thing or that their allegiance to what is right versus what is expected will cost them their jobs.

    Yes, I also can’t fathom why Joe Aguillard is still in charge. I am an alum who graduated in accounting and went on to get my CPA. If I was to audit a company that had the problems that are described in these attachments, the executive would be asked for his resignation, and if he did not tender it, he would be fired. Perhaps he is not the only one that needs to go. Have there been any investigations ordered?

    Actually, let me share with you something that you won’t find in these attachments that struck me odd when I came to the campus for a class reunion a few years ago. My hosts drove me by Dr. Aguillard’s house, and I was quite shocked to see its enormity…he was clearly living in flagrant luxury. Why wasn’t the President’s parsonage at the edge of campus good enough for him? Was he really a part of the campus community like Dr. Lynn had been? Or was he an outsider that was trying to make a name for himself? Did he really have integrity? Those are all questions a good auditor has to ask when analyzing executives.

    I am grieved that there are faculty at Louisiana College that are being pushed to their financial limits with little or no salary increases for over a decade when the president is getting hefty salary increases–this is unacceptable behavior for a leader. My daughter is currently attending another college and because of our country’s economic conditions, the college has held tuition rates at the same levels for the last two years. Their college president refused any salary increases to make their institution as affordable as possible and allow for needed painting and repairs this year.

    The disrepair of the buildings on the LC campus is unacceptable and made my heart equally sick. This winter I suffered from a fungal sinus infection that was finally traced to my attending several meetings at a local grange hall that has a leaky roof; it took me over a month and a half of treatment to get well from that! I cannot imagine being able to tolerate living in a dorm for a whole semester that has this sort of problem–Cottingham with rain barrels in the attic to catch water from the leaks in the roof! Having a showy stadium and other lofty expansion plans when the core campus infrastructure is falling apart is criminal!!

    Many people–alumni, etc.–are interested but have not been able to access SOLC. Maybe some outreach is in order.
