Nicholls Celebrates Firsts, General Scenes in Student Life

In the fall of 1963, Nicholls State University integrated. In the more than 50 years since that time, there have been many firsts. In these images The Colonel has collected some of those, as well as other moments as highlighting Nicholls transitioning to becoming a more inclusive campus. Images were collected by Tyler Legnon from the La Pirogue yearbook and Clifton Theriot, archivist for the department of archives and special collections and assistant director for the Ellender Memorial Library.
