Memorable moments in 2013
As the calendar turns away from 2013, it’s a good time to reflect on the accomplishments and events that happened at LSU over the past year.
In 2013, LSU said good-bye to William Jenkins, a 35-year veteran of higher education who retired for a second time from the university, and welcomed new President and Chancellor F. King Alexander to campus.
The university also greeted a stellar freshman class, composed of 5,501 students – the third largest in LSU history – and maintained its place as one of the top national universities in U.S. News & World Report’s 2014 edition of “Best Colleges.”
From a game-changing partnership with IBM and Louisiana Economic Development to a trip to the College World Series and from a number of prestigious scholarships, grants and awards to hosting living legend Maya Angelou on campus, the LSU community showed what it means to “Love Purple” and “Live Gold” in 2013.
