Office of the Dean of Students announces Tiger Twelve

In 1995, students, staff and faculty came together to craft a statement of position regarding LSU's basic principles as an academic community and what they outlined became the LSU Commitment to Community, which states expectations for each of person as an LSU community member.

To promote these principles, each spring the Office of the Dean of Students recognizes 12 outstanding seniors who "contribute positively to the life of the campus and surrounding community" as members of the Tiger Twelve. This award recognizes graduates who are current, full-time students, who have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5, and have best demonstrated the seven basic principles outlined in LSU's Commitment to Community.

A ceremony and reception was held in their honor in April to recognize the Tiger Twelve Class of 2012: Jessica Rachelle Addison, Jessica Baer, Haley Y. Bove, Amanda Briggs, Stephen G Collura Jr., Andrew Scott Decker, Eve Marie Franchebois, Stewart W. Humble, Mel Acosta Lazo Jr., Hanna Munoz, Mikana Scott, and Theodore B. Williams III.
