Preliminary numbers show the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is on track to have a freshman class with the highest GPA in history.

Almost 3,000-member, first-time freshman class includes roughly 125 high school valedictorians,
​according to Charlie Bier, UL Communications Specialist. This class is expected to top a cumulative 3.4 GPA, which would set a record for an incoming class. It may also set a new composite ACT score record, just above 24.

Final numbers are set to be released at a later date.
