In 1939, Louisiana opened the Lake Charles Junior College, a division of Louisiana State University and the forerunner of McNeese State University. The following year, the school changed its name to John McNeese Junior College to honor John McNeese, a renowned Southwest Louisiana educator and the first superintendent of schools in Imperial Calcasieu Parish.


Located in one of the fastest growing areas in the state, the local petrochemical, agricultural and hospitality industries, as well as hospitals and public and private schools throughout SWLA, rely on McNeese to provide well-qualified employees. Our graduates also go on to successfully start their own businesses, from law offices to veterinary practices.
