LSU Chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi and the LSU Alumni Association recognized four faculty members at the PKP 2017 Awards and Induction Ceremony in March.
Rendy Kartika, assistant professor of chemistry; Josh Grimm, assistant professor of mass communication, and Elias Goldstein, assistant professor of music, each received a Non-Tenured Faculty Award valued at $500. Elzbieta Cook, a senior instructor of chemistry, recognized as an Outstanding Instructor, also received a $500 award. Chapter President Richard Vlosky presided over the ceremony, and Michelle Massé, dean of the Graduate School, was the keynote speaker.
More than 200 students, faculty members, and instructors became members of the honor society this spring.


Alums Create the Crawfish App

LSU alums Ryan King (2012 BACH ENGR) and his wife, Laney (2005 BACH BUS, 2010 MBA), have developed a cell phone app to make it easier for you to eat crawfish.
“The idea came to us three years ago. At the time, we were having crawfish boils just about every weekend, and it took a lot of time to call all the vendors, to figure out who had crawfish and how much they were,” said Ryan King, co-founder of  the Crawfish App, and a third-year law student at the Paul M. Hebert Law Center.
“It’s really kind of the mix of both of our backgrounds,” Ryan said. “The technical aspects of the app, I’ve taken care of. The business side and the sales side, Laney’s taken care of all of that.”
The app is free for the user and the vendors.
“Eventually we’re going to make money off advertising on the app. So, the more downloads we have the more appealing it is for advertisers,” Laney explained.
The app allows users to search for live or boiled crawfish based on price, reviews, and location.  Click here to read more.  


Check Out These Resources at LSU Libraries
LSU alumni feature prominently in the new LSU Digital Commons institutional repository. The online repository, sponsored by the LSU Libraries and the Office of Research and Economic Development, offers free online access to a variety of LSU scholarship.

The Graduate School’s online collection contains electronic theses and dissertations from 2001-2016 and over 7,000 selectively digitized dissertations from 1935-2001. This growing collection of nearly 17,000 items is a great display of the intellectual work produced by LSU graduate students.

This project is part of the LSU Libraries’ and Graduate School’s efforts to make LSU theses and dissertations more accessible. The unique campus materials are now full-text searchable, indexed, and highly ranked in Google and linked to a global network of university repositories.

LSU Digital Commons is also home to digital versions of the
Gumbo Yearbooks, School of Veterinary Medicine Cenobium Yearbooks, and materials such as the ORED Research Magazine and the LSU Agriculture Experiment Station Reports.
