Nicholls prof headed to Paris to give lecture

A Nicholls State University professor has been invited to lecture at a university in Paris.

Andrew Simoncelli, a mass communication professor, will visit the Pole Universitaire Leonard de Vinci.

His lecture, on how businesses use social network sites to attract customers, is part of the university’s International Week series of presentations. The French school is paying for the trip and his expenses, he said.
