Association President talks "Parties with a Purpose"

We are now officially in “chapter season” – the time of year that takes us from coast to coast to visit with alumni celebrating their love of the purple and gold at those time-honored rites of spring, crawfish boils. We like to call them “parties with a purpose” – for, in addition to the good food, fun, and camaraderie, these events have, over the years, raised some $5 million to endow scholarships and professorships. Together, I know we can do much more. Attend a chapter “party with a purpose” this year and help support deserving scholars. Visit lsualumni.org/coast-to-coast-crawfish-boils to find a boil near you!
