President and Chancellor F. King Alexander's First Few Weeks at LSU

New President and Chancellor F. King Alexander started at LSU on Monday, June 24, and during that time, he's attended a number of activities to get him acclimated to the university.

In the past few weeks, he's visited with parents and students during LSU orientation, attended the LSU AgCenter's Rice Research Field Day, discussed emergency operations on campus and toured the LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, among other meetings and visits. During his first 60 days on the job, Alexander plans to visit with each college at LSU, along with each LSU institution in the state.
