LSU Day puts university on display as part of Homecoming festivities
As part of LSU's Sesquicentennial Celebration in 2010, as well as the university's Homecoming Week celebration, LSU opened its doors to the public Saturday, Nov. 13, for LSU Day — a free, fun-filled day of exploration and discovery, highlighted by performing arts showcases, tours and exhibitions showing off LSU's rich history, current offerings and goals for the future.
LSU Day experiences took place at three areas of campus – the Field of Excellence, located at the University Recreation Complex on South Campus Drive near the LSU lakes; the South Campus Promenade, located along South Campus Drive east of Highland Road; and the Union Square, located in and around the Student Union. Many other LSU Day-related events were also held in and around the campus.
In addition to LSU Day, numerous Homecoming events took place throughout the week, culminating with the annual Homecoming Parade on Nov. 13. Later that evening, the LSU Tiger football team defeated the University of Louisiana at Monroe, 51-0, in the university's annual Homecoming game. During that contest, Kristin Davis and Stuart Watkins were crowned as this year's Homecoming queen and king.
LSU Day is one of several signature activities taking place throughout 2010 as part of the university's Sesquicentennial Celebration. Sesquicentennial-related events throughout the year are made possible thanks to generous donations to the university by the following sponsors: Campus Federal Credit Union, Baton Rouge Coca-Cola Bottling Company, AT&T, Raising Cane's, ExxonMobil, Entergy and Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Louisiana.
