LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

McNeese State University laid out the welcome mat for prospective students. The university held its annual Spring Preview Day on Saturday showcasing the best McNeese has to offer.

The Admissions and Recruiting Office, along with faculty and current students, were on hand to answer questions about what to expect. Everything from course curriculum to housing - it was a one stop shop for high school students looking to enroll.

"I really like it here. I like it how the campus is so small and it's really not like drastically far from any place," said Lauren Beadle, Hahnville High School Junior.

"I love it. I love the campus. It's really nice and I like that they are adding new contributions to it which is great. It's a growing place, so I love it," said LeighAnna Rasco, Hahnville High School Junior.

"I just want to be able to know who I am talking to. I want the professors to know my name. I want to be close to people and know I can have somebody to talk to," said Lauren Simar, Hahnville High School Junior.

"One of the things we really pride ourselves with these preview days is getting our faculty involved. You know, as admissions counselors, we can answer a lot of questions but if you really want a lot of detail about your future curriculum the professors are definitely there with all of the knowledge," said Elizabeth Eustis, MSU Admissions and Recruiting Counselor.

McNeese officials said more than 1,000 students came to the preview day. Dates for the fall preview day have yet to be announced.
