LSU Students Gain a “Leading Edge” with Campus Life
BATON ROUGE – Participants of LSU Campus Life's Leading Edge program recently gathered to celebrate the culmination of their yearlong efforts and commitment toward leadership. Students were recognized with a celebratory dinner held in the LSU Student Union. Colt Hardee, Lauren Lattier and Olivia Orlando each presented a reflection on the impact the program has had on their LSU experience.
