BATON ROUGE – The LSU Office of the Dean of Students presented the Tiger Twelve Class of 2017 at a ceremony held Saturday, April 22, at 2:30 p.m. in the rotunda of the LSU Business Education Complex.

Chase Antonio August, kinesiology student and Lafayette, La. native, was named a member of the Tiger Twelve Class.

August served as an LSU Ambassador spring orientation leader and LSU STRIPES Program small group leader, where he welcomed new students and families to LSU. He also represented LSU at the Southern Regional Orientation Workshop. August was selected LSU Mister Imani 2015, and worked to improve minority retention and inclusiveness on campus. He is the president of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., and was a member of the Leadership LSU Class of 2016. He worked as a public health intern for the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention where he completed a qualitative health study of Washtenaw County, Michigan.

After graduation, August will be relocating to Dallas, Texas, where he will be working with a medical sales company, specializing in prosthetics and surgical equipment. He hopes to work towards decreasing the disparities that exist within impoverished communities by facilitating their access to affordable, quality healthcare.

Tiger Twelve is an honor that has been presented to 12 seniors by the Office of the Dean of Students since 2003. Students selected as members of the Tiger Twelve are current, full-time students graduating in 2017, who have maintained at least a 2.5 GPA and best exemplified the seven tenets outlined in the LSU Commitment to Community, a statement of LSU’s basic principles as an academic community. It was crafted by a committee of students, faculty and staff in 1995 and states the expectations for each LSU community member.

The Office of the Dean of Students transforms lives by facilitating opportunities and experiences to discover, engage and learn in a diverse, inclusive and just community while promoting social responsibility. Visit for more information about the LSU Tiger Twelve.
