The University of Louisiana at Monroe has a history almost as rich and beautiful as the bayou that winds through its 238-acre campus.
From its inception, the university was created with one goal in mind—to serve the educational needs of northeast Louisiana and to enlighten those from all over the world.
Founded in 1931, ULM has served its scholars exceptionally well for more than 80 years.
One of nine universities in the University of Louisiana System, ULM strives to achieve a standard of excellence for its students, faculty, and staff.
With 8,560 students enrolled as of fall 2012, ULM’s diverse student body contains students from more than 60 countries and 43 states.
ULM’s landscape has changed dramatically.
Over the last 13 years, ULM has invested approximately $100 million in architectural and landscaping improvements. This project qualified as one of the largest of its kind in the southeastern United States.
In 2012, ULM was honored with a Civic Improvement Commendation from the Monroe Garden Study League, a member of the Garden Club of America.
The centerpiece of ULM’s transformation is the ULM Library, located along beautiful Bayou DeSiard, one of the longest natural bayous in the United States.
ULM provides new, renovated and modern housing options for students, student life activities that keep students involved and interacting with their peers, performances from Visual and Performing Arts, and numerous athletic events throughout the year for students seeking the thrills of competition.
ULM offers traditional and online degrees from five different colleges including the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business Administration, the College of Health Sciences, the College of Education and Human Development, and the College of Pharmacy.
Students at ULM excel in many of these fields with 100 percent passage rates on licensure exams for students in Nursing, Speech Language Pathology, Radiologic Technology, and Dental Hygiene.
