New video series goes behind the scenes to tell the stories of the people who make LSU great.

LSU tells the stories of its outstanding students, faculty, staff and alumni every day, promoting their work to the world. With the new “Eye on a Tiger” video series, LSU will delve even deeper into what makes them tick, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make this university great.

The first edition of “Eye on a Tiger” features LSU School of Veterinary Medicine student Macy Trosclair, who, when she isn’t studying or taking one of the 26 hours worth of classes she had this fall, is one of three people – two students and one veterinarian – tasked with caring for Mike VI, LSU’s live tiger mascot.

If you’ve ever wanted to know how Mike’s caretakers get the job, what goes into cleaning his “litter box,” or which two-foot-tall shrub the 440-pound tiger likes to “hide” behind while playing hide-and-seek with Macy, you’ll find those answers inside.

The “Eye on a Tiger” videos are meant to be as informative as they are entertaining, but don’t worry, there won’t be a test at the end. Unlike our students, you won’t need a scantron, but you will know the answer the next time you hear someone ask, “Do you know who takes care of Mike VI?”
