UL LAFAYETTE HOSTS FIRST ACADEMIC SIGNING DAY at STM
Second signing at Catholic High in New Iberia
 
More than 40 graduating seniors from St. Thomas More High School signed a letter of “intent” to attend the University of Louisiana at Lafayette on April 29. This Academic Signing Day was a first for UL Lafayette. The event showcases students and highlight their academic achievements during high school.

A second signing day was held at Catholic High School in New Iberia on May 1. Fourteen students signed letters of intent to attend UL Lafayete.

“ Following the theme of National Signing Day for athletes, we’ve begun to host academic signings to recognize students who have excelled academically by having them indicate their intent to enroll at UL Lafayette,” said Chip Jackson, director of Enrollment Services.

At STM, 42 students signed letters of intent and UL Lafayette scholarship offers. Plans are being finalized for more signings at area high schools.

“ This is a great way to congratulate these students on their academic achievements and thank them for selecting UL Lafayette for their continued education,” said Dr. Joseph Savoie, UL Lafayette president. “They deserve the recognition and we welcome them to campus.”
