The McNeese State University Alumni Association has donated $40,000 to support the First Choice Campaign at McNeese. The university has launched a three-year First Choice Campaign with local industry partners and contractors with a goal of raising $1 million per year for those three years for sustaining growth and self-sufficiency. These funds will provide the necessary resources to hire faculty and upgrade labs to sustain growth in high demand academic areas while the university implements a strategic plan to increase enrollment and retention over the next three years.
