Governor's Race

It was a week of who’s in, who’s out in the 2019 Louisiana’s governor’s race. This as the GOP tries to unseat Democrat John Bel Edwards next year. Andre’ Moreau talks with political historian Bob Mann, from LSU’s Manship School of Journalism and Greg Hilburn of the Monroe News-Star and USA Today Newspapers.

Financial Aid

Graduation time for almost half the college students in the state is a double reality check time. Students are entering the real world with careers on their minds, but 48 percent of them also owe money for the education they just received. The average debt for those who borrowed in LSU’s graduation class of 2017 is just under $25 thousand dollars. Andre' talks with Brittani Williams and Kayla Gros from the State Office of Student Financial Aid about TOPS and other programs for students.
