At Bastrop High School's first Louisiana College Application event, held Nov. 14, 170 seniors completed their college applications either on-line or paper-based to many universities such as LSU, LSU-A, LSU-S, ULM, ULL, La Tech, Southern and Grambling.

LA GEAR UP supplied the funds for admission fees for students who do not qualify for fee waiver and for those colleges that do not accept fee waiver.

The school's first Parent College Trip to Delta Community College and ULM was also recently held. Parents of senior students learned about college admission requirements, scholarships, financial aid, housing options and other opportunities available for their children.
