Louisiana College is a private institution of higher education located in Pineville, in the central portion of the U.S. state of Louisiana. Affiliated with the Louisiana Baptist Convention, it serves approximately 1,300 students. The college operates on a semester system, with two shorter summer terms. Although the college is affiliated with a group of Baptist churches, who make up the membership of the Louisiana Baptist Convention, students need not be a member of that denomination to attend.
In the winter of 2013, President Joe Aguillard,in the Louisiana College magazine "Columns" stated that: "My love for all Baptists including Calvinists, does not constitute our approval of its being advocated at Louisiana College."
The school colors are orange and blue, and their athletics teams are known as the Wildcats and Lady Wildcats.
