Land Grant College

Congress, through the Morrill Act of of 1862, donated 210,000 acres of public land to Louisiana to provide a college "For the benefit of Agriculture and the Mechanical Arts." The land and underlying conditions were accepted by the State in 1869.

The General Assembly established the Louisiana State Agricultural and Mechanical College (at New Orleans) in 1874 and named it the recipient of the Morrill Land Grant.

The A&M College and LSU were "united" in 1877 to become the Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College, with the combined school continuing to serve as Louisiana's Land Grant College.
