BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) —
Several Louisiana colleges and universities have shown tremendous progress with this year's graduation rates, and the Board of Regents today commended 7 different universities for breaking records when it came to the number of graduates.
In our area, BRCC had 800 graduates. Southern Baton Rouge had 150 law school students and the most PHD's ever .
Also the University of Lafayette had 1,455 graduates.
Board chairman Bob Levy said this is a positive benchmark that does not need to be overlooked.
