Janice G. Lyn, Ph.D.

Dean of Students


On behalf of the Dean of Students office, welcome to the Nicholls State University family and to our web site. This site is designed to take you easily and efficiently to the information you need about the many programs and services offered in the Dean of Students office. 

A university is a place to learn and it is also a place to live. These offices are here to assist you with both of these. Our job is to enhance your in and out of class experience, to facilitate your interaction with faculty, staff, and other students, and to help you find your place in the Nicholls State University community.   

Within the office of the Dean of Students you will find Conduct and Accountability/Student Compliance, the Case Manager, Greek Life, Student Organizations/Activities & the Student Programming Association, Student Career and Leadership Development, over 80 student organizations, and much more. Our goal is to help you achieve academically, stay healthy, get involved, find a job, and find resources to enrich your life. 

Behind every link to each of these departments are people ready to help you make the most of your university experience. Look us up. We are here for you.  I would also like to encourage each of you to get involved with one of our many student organizations.  If you don’t see an organization you are interested in, you can start one!  

The Office of the Dean of Students is located in the Bollinger Student Union, Suite 13.  My email is and my phone number is (985)448-4563.  Please stop by and see us.  As always, if you have concerns or questions, I am here to listen and help. I am your campus liaison to the administration and academic community.  Please let me know what my office can do to make your academic year, as well as your stay here, a success. We are here to serve you.
