For more than a half century, McNeese State has provided service to its community and state and to the students who seek to secure their future through higher education. McNeese opened its doors in 1939 as Lake Charles Junior College and as a division of the Louisiana State University system. Name changes later were made to John McNeese Junior College (1940) and to McNeese State (1950) when the university separated from LSU. In 1970 the school obtained its present name of McNeese State University. The university presently has an enrollment of 8,900 and has over 300 fulltime faculty members, 66 percent of whom possess the doctoral degree. The university is located on 580 acres in south Lake Charles. McNeese was named after John McNeese, a pioneer Southwest Louisiana educator who served as the first superintendent of education in Calcasieu Parish. He was also a cattle rancher and was renowned for making the first cattle drive across the Sabine River, thus the school’s nickname of Cowboys. The University provides opportunities for continuing education in support of its mission to value lifelong learning. As a member of the University of Louisiana System and a selective admissions institution, McNeese offers degrees through six academic colleges: Business, Education, Engineering and Technology, Liberal Arts, Nursing and Science. McNeese’s athletic programs are NCAA certified for competition at the 1-A levels (FCS for football). The University’s motto of “Excellence with a Personal Touch” extends beyond the classroom to offering help to others in times of need. During World War II, the campus was the headquarters of the Louisiana Maneuvers, an extensive military exercise to prepare American soldiers for battle. In 1957 the McNeese community gave aid and comfort to victims of Hurricane Audrey and served as the National Guard’s base of rescue operations. McNeese provided shelter for New Orleans residents and university students fleeing from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the school faced one of its greatest challenges when Hurricane Rita struck in the fall that same year. The storm caused devastating damage to campus facilities and infrastructure. The recovery effort after Hurricane Rita showed the community of Southwest Louisiana the high caliber of McNeese faculty, staff and students in their commitment to complete the semester and move forward in support of the core values of academic excellence, student success, fiscal responsibility and university/community alliances. • established in 1939, McNeese State has an enrollment of 8,900.

Louis Bonnette Field at Cowboy Stadium

McNeese State debuted its new GeoMax2 infilled “replicated grass” playing field in 2008. The project was financed by longtime university supporter Robert Noland (pictured below and second from right in the near picture) and at his request the field was named the Louis Bonnette Field in honor of the school’s longtime sports information director. GSE GeoSport Surfaces, which is the largest geo-synthetics manufacturer in the world and the inventors of all rubber infill “replicated grass” installed the turf. McNeese booster clubs - the Cowboy Club, the Quarterback Club and the Petrochem Athletic Association - provided additional funding for the project.

Dowell Fontenot Sports Medicine Center

McNeese State’s Dowell “Doc” Fontenot Sports Medicine Center is an ultra-modern facility and one of the finest in the South. It is named after longtime McNeese athletic trainer Dowell Fontenot (pictured above) who was also a national champion boxer during his undergraduate days at the university and who is a member of the McNeese Hall of Fame. The center is located just south of the McNeese athletic fieldhouse. Funds for the 6,200 square foot medical center were obtained from the state, from private donations and from the McNeese PetroChem Athletic Association.

Jack Doland Field House The new Jack Doland athletic fieldhouse opened during the summer. This is a two story $8 million facility with new locker rooms, weight rooms, meeting rooms and offices as well as seated area for football games. The building encompasses 32,000 square feet.

Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana McNeese State University is located in Lake Charles, LA, a city with a romatic past and a promising future. Situated in Southwest Louisiana and only 30 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, the area’s scenic beauty and abundant natural resources - with waterways playing a predominate role - first lured settlers. Lake Charles was once a haven for pirates like Jean Lafitte who hid contraband along the labyrinth of backwater and bayous. The city’s beginning can be traced to the 1790s when the first French settlers came to carve homesteads out of the dense pine forests. Barthlemy LeBleu established the first home six miles east of Lake Charles (now known as LeBleu settlement). Charles Sallier married LeBleu’s daughter and in 1803 built the first log cabin on the shell beach of Lake Charles. The surrounding area was named after the Indian Chief “Crying Eagle” which in French became Calcasieu, that name today designating the river that runs on the edge of the city and up the middle of the parish. After the Civil War, Lake Charles became a lumber town with a healthy schooner trade, swamped with orders for lumber to help rebuild the war torn South. When lumber began to wane, the city opened a deep water port in 1923, paving the way for industrial development. Today this link to the Gulf accomodates up to 13 ships at a time. Lake Charles is a city of 80,000 diverse people but the influence of the French Acadians is seen in local cusine, language and customs. In many of the small towns and bayous near Lake Charles, Cajun Fench is still spoken. The city is a center for international commerce with its port, abundant oil and gas resources, a sprawling petro-chemical complex and an aviation facility. It has also become a favorite vacation port with riverboat casinos bordering its waters. The city is set in the midst of a sportsman paradise - fishing (saltwater and fresh), hunting (duck, geese, deer, squirrel, rabbit, turkey), shrimping and crabbing are staples.
