MONROE, La. (AP) - Fifty-one students from around the South have moved into the dorms at the University of Louisiana in Monroe for the university’s President’s Academy.

The college-preparatory program is an annual event at ULM. Participants are selected from applicants based on their high school grade point averages and ACT scores.

President Nick Bruno tells KNOE-TV (https://bit.ly/1smVbhc) that the academy is a good recruiting tool for the university.

“Many of these students have never come to ULM. Many don’t know where ULM is located or anything about us. It allows them to focus on who we are, what we do, to visit the campus, to see the community and of course participate in the local businesses,” Bruno said.

The students will get college classroom and real work experience in the program, which runs for a week.

Faculty members welcomed the prospective students Sunday with a reception.
