leave a comment »

NATCHITOCHES ­ – Northwestern State University will hold its
annual Spring Senior Day Saturday, March 12. Top students can get a head
start on their college education at NSU¹s Credit Connection being held that
same day. Current high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors as well as
their families who planned to attend the Discover NSU program on Feb. 5 can
also take part in Spring Senior Day.

            NSU¹s Office of University Recruiting will be holding its annual
Spring Senior Day beginning at 9 a.m. Registration starts at 8 a.m. in
Magale Recital Hall. Representatives from each of NSU¹s colleges will be on
hand to explain degree programs offered at Northwestern. Staff from the
financial aid, housing and scholarship offices will also be available to
answer questions. A student panel will give a unique perspective on the
university. An orientation program for parents will also be held. Also as
part of Spring Senior Day, prospective students will get to tour
Northwestern¹s campus.

            During Credit Connection, students can earn college credit by
taking an Advanced Standing Examination. Students with ACT scores of at
least 25 are eligible to take exams which can result in credit being posted
on the student¹s college transcript once they enroll at Northwestern.

            Tests for English 1010, English 1020, Fine Arts 1040, foreign
languages, NSU Math 1020 and Math 1060 will be offered. Registration will
occur in the testing rooms prior to each session.

            Students with ACT Math subscores below 19 or 460 on the SAT or
English subscores below 18 on the ACT or 450 on the SAT can take placement
(COMPASS) exams which can result in students being able to register in
college level courses instead of developmental courses. A $25 fee is
required for COMPASS testing.

All tests will be given in Kyser Hall on the NSU campus.

            Credit Connection begins at 8:30 a.m. in the A.A. Fredericks
Auditorium. The first round of tests begins at 10 a.m. with the second round
at 1 p.m.

            Northwestern offers a unique scholarship opportunity for seniors
who are leaders among their peers. The Presidents Leadership Program allows
a select group of freshmen the opportunity to enhance their leadership
skills through an exciting experiential program. The Department of Student
Activities will host a PLP Experiential Session after the Senior Day
activities from 2:30 p.m. until 5 p.m. A reservation is required in order to
participate in the program.

            Lunch will be available at 12 p.m. for $9.

            For more information on Spring Senior Day/Credit Connection,
