Northwestern State University’s N-Side View Day set for September 30, 2023

Northwestern State University’s Office of University Recruiting will hold its annual Fall N Side View Day on Saturday, Sept. 30 beginning at 8 a.m.  

NSide View Day offers a behind-the-scenes glance into college and university life. Parents and students will discover student organizations, learn about academic programs, get information
on the admissions process and receive helpful tips from faculty and current students.

During the event, prospective students and parents can tour campus facilities and get information on financial aid, living on campus, housing, meal plans, campus involvement and amenities,
such as the Wellness, Recreation and Activities Center and the Esports Lounge.  

“The best way to learn what Northwestern State offers its students is to visit the campus and city of Natchitoches in person and meet with the people who ensure our students are successful,”  said Director of Enrollment Services Van Erickson. “It is a pleasure to welcome prospective students and their parents to NSU. We know they will find N Side View to be a valuable experience.”

Current Northwestern State students agree that attending N Side View Day can be helpful for those who are considering attending NSU.

“It was an awesome experience to get to meet fellow students and co-workers at N Side View Day and to get a sneak peek at what life at NSU is like,” said Carter Causey,
a freshman business administration major from Leesville.

Qualified students can take Accuplacer Exams through NSU Credit Connection that could lead to them receiving college credit. Students can take the Accuplacer exam for $25 for placement
 in English and math classes, as well as take Credit Connection placement exams for free for credit in English 1010 and 1020; Math 1020 and 1060; Science 1010, Fine Arts 1040 and Spanish 1010.  

A student reception will be held on Friday, Sept. 29 at the Arnold J. Kilpatrick President’s Residence. Those attending can meet NSU President Dr. Marcus Jones along with key faculty
and staff. A link to sign up for the reception is at

Those attending NSide View Day can also visit the 17th
