When student Nathan Cooper first came to LSU on a campus tour, he was impressed by its friendly culture. Now a sophomore at LSU, Nathan still feels the welcoming spirit at LSU, which has made his time away from home enjoyable.
After hearing about the LSU Family Association at orientation, Nathan's mom, proud LSU parent Alexcia, immediately became involved. She said, “As an out-of-state family, I saw value in the services the Family Association provides to parents and students.” She also shared her interest to serve on the Family Council to actively assist LSU families across the nation adjust to the college experience. Alexcia added, “I also desired to show my son the importance of servant leadership.” The LSU Family Council serves parents in a variety of ways, including sharing information about university resources and giving an annual philanthropic leadership gift to continue excellent student support services."
Alexcia notes that her involvement at LSU has been a rewarding experience for my family: “My son has received guidance from various university leaders who have served as resources through the Family Association. It is an awesome feeling to know university personnel have genuine concern for Nathan's success.”
She has been involved in the Atlanta Send Off Event and served as a parent volunteer at college fairs in Atlanta, sharing her experiences as an LSU parent and member of the LSU Family Association. She helps create the same welcoming feeling her son experienced for other LSU parents in Atlanta and across the nation. Alexcia is making an impact at LSU by inspiring prospective students and parents to choose LSU and motivating new LSU parents to become involved with the LSU Family Association.
