Nicholls State University is a public university in Thibodaux, Louisiana. Founded in 1948, Nicholls is part of the University of Louisiana System. Originally named Francis T. Nicholls Junior College, the university is named for Francis T. Nicholls, a former governor of Louisiana and member of the Louisiana Supreme Court.

The 287-acre (1.16 km2) campus, once part of Acadia Plantation, fronts on Bayou Lafourche, about 50 miles (80 km) southwest of New Orleans and 60 miles (97 km) southeast of Baton Rouge. Its oldest structure, Elkins Hall, was completed in 1948 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Nicholls is located in the Acadiana region. It is also within the geographical bounds of the Mississippi River Delta, and close to the Mississippi River, its distributaries, Louisiana's wetlands, and the Gulf of Mexico.

  • I had an amazing experience! The college is very big and nice and the teachers are highly qualified. The building is very big and on the cafeteria you can eat any kind of food, drinks and desserts.
  • I attended Nicholls State University from 1993 - 2001 and cannot say enough great things for this school. I'm in the medical field and can honestly say that I owe it all to the professors and instructors. The teachers are genuinely interested in giving their students the best education to propel them through to the top in their field. Thanks Nicholls State, you're the best. Unsurpassed!
