In 2019, the LSU Alumni Association announced the first ever Young Alumni Advisory Council. The association established this council to improve engagement with this unique group and to help guide future initiatives as a result of its strategic plan.
The council seeks to best represent the LSU young alumni population, therefore members represent cities both in Louisiana and across the United States as well as a wide range of industries. Members meet four times a year, three times via conference call and one time in-person. The council serves as a streamlined focus group to provide key insight and feedback on engagement, development, and fundraising. Members have the opportunity to connect back with their alma mater and network with fellow alumni, while also working to better support young and future alumni to build increased and enhanced connections to each other and to the University.
Each year, the council hosts an event to welcome fellow young alumni back to campus before a home game in Tiger Stadium. In 2019, the council hosted a Young Alumni Tailgate before the LSU vs. Auburn game. In 2021, we are in the process of planning Young Alumni Weekend October 15-17. The perfect way to kick off LSU vs. Florida!
