Beyond the Classroom


Activities & Organizations

With over 100 student organizations on campus, there's always something going on in between and after classes. From Greek life to multicultural clubs and events, there is a place for you to find your niche at McNeese.


Health & Wellness

Maintaining your physical and mental well being is key to having a successful college career. McNeese understands this, and offers a variety of services to help keep you healthy.

Campus Amenities

Tuck in to a hand-crafted burger or recharge with a cup of coffee and a bagel, all while being steps away from home. With seven residence halls and plenty of dining options, campus is the place to live, study and unwind.


Fitness & Athletics

Work hard, play hard! McNeese is a place where you can hit the field as hard as you hit the books. Get your heart pumping with a workout, burn off steam in a quick pickup game, or enjoy cheering on your classmates in Cowboy Stadium.


Rodeo Team

McNeese Rodeo team members enjoy a covered practice arena just a few miles from the university. Free stalls are available to team members, as well as practice equipment including a mighty broncy, drop barrel, spur boards, rope ‘n tie/calf sleds, heel-o-matic and a goat tying dummy. We also have a gym on site for team members.

Scholarships are available based on outstanding athletic performance in college rodeos, high school and open rodeos.
