MCNEESE STATE UNIVERSITY. Lake Charles, Louisiana 70609 (318) 477- 1098. Lake Charles Junior College was established in 1939 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, as a division of Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College.* The 86-acre campus was donated by the Calcasieu Parish Policy Jury with two buildings: Kaufman Hall administration building and an arena. An auditorium was added in 1940. Joseph Farrar served as the first dean from 1939 to 1941. In 1940 the college was named John McNeese Junior College in honor of a Southwest Louisiana educator. The school was made independent in 1950 when it became a four-year college and was named McNeese State College. Lether Edward Frazar, who had been dean of the junior college from 1945 to 1950, became the first president of the college in 1950. In 1956 he was succeeded by Wayne Norred Cusic, who served until 1968.

A master's degree was authorized in 1960, and the college offered doctoral degree programs from 1968 to the early 1980s when they were phased out. Divisions of Humanities, Fine Arts, Education, Pure and Applied Sciences, and Graduate Studies were organized in 1962 and a Division of Business in 1965. They were redesignated schools in 1968, and a School of Engineering was added. In 1970 the name was changed to McNeese State University during the administration of Thomas Samuel Leary ( 1968-1980). The schools became colleges in 1980. There are ninety-seven buildings on the 99-acre main campus, including Kaufman Hall, Arena, Auditorium, Fine Arts Building ( 1949), Frasch Hall life sciences building ( 1956), Lether E. Frazar Memorial Library ( 1961), Kirkman Hall physical sciences facility ( 1968), Farrar Hall education building ( 1969), Holbrook Student Union, and student residence halls. In addition to the main campus the university has a 402-acre farm, 65-acre athletic plant and student apartment complex, and a forestry camp.
