The college is located on an 81-acre campus with a total of 25 academic and residential buildings. Most of the students at Louisiana College come from Central Louisiana, but many states and several foreign countries are represented in the current student body. The faculty and staff of Louisiana College genuinely care for the students. Their primary concern is to enhance student learning and to encourage the student’s Christian growth. Approximately two-thirds of the faculty hold terminal degrees in their academic discipline.

The college was chartered in 1906 as a non-profit corporation with the object “to own, operate and conduct a Baptist college... to foster Christian education.” Louisiana College is affiliated with the Louisiana Baptist Convention.
