Nicholls State University, founded in 1948, is a public university located in Thibodaux, Louisiana, USA. Nicholls State is part of the University of Louisiana System of universities. Originally called Francis T. Nicholls Junior College, the institution split from the Louisiana State University System in 1956. The university is named for Francis T. Nicholls, a Confederate general, former governor of Louisiana, and member of the Louisiana Supreme Court. The 210-acre (0.85 km2) campus, once part of historic Acadia Plantation, fronts on Bayou Lafourche, about 50 miles (80 km) southwest of New Orleans and 60 miles (97 km) southeast of Baton Rouge. Nicholls is located in Acadiana, also known as "Cajun Country," an area rich in tradition and culture. It is also located in the heart of the Mississippi River Delta, allowing easy access to the river, its distributaries, Louisiana's wetlands, and the Gulf of Mexico. The school is sometimes referred to as "Harvard on the Bayou;" the university bookstore even sells shirts sporting this light-hearted nickname. Nicholls is the home of the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute.
