2017 Graduate Recruitment Weekend
On Thursday, February 23, six prospective graduate students arrived in Baton Rouge to take part in our 2017 Graduate Recruitment Weekend. They attended the College Kickoff/Breakfast Friday morning, then traveled to Tiger Stadium for a tour of the facilities and field. Next, Aaron Harrington—LSU ChE Graduate Student Association President—took them on a guided tour of LSU’s campus. Following the morning activities, they participated in a round robin of faculty poster presentations and lab tours, as well as a tour of LSU’s Center for Advanced Microstructures & Devices (CAMD) facilities. That evening they were treated to a Louisiana specialty, a good old-fashioned crawfish boil. After eating—and getting to know the faculty and current grad students—they traveled to Alex Box Stadium where they watched LSU play Maryland. Saturday they were able to experience a unique part of Louisiana’s culture—the Spanish Town Mardi Gras parade. Sunday morning they parted our company and returned to the airport, excited about their visit to our beautiful campus.
The department would like to thank all who participated and made this event a success.
