BATON ROUGE – The LSU Olinde Career Center will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of its new location in the LSU Student Union on Tuesday, Sept. 2, at 2 p.m. in the Union’s Live Oak Lounge. The event will conclude with a reception and self-guided tours of the facility.

The LSU Olinde Career Center Director Mary Feduccia will preside over the ceremony, which will include LSU President and Chancellor Dr. F. King Alexander, Student Life & Enrollment Vice Chancellor Kurt Keppler, Secretary of Louisiana Economic Development Stephen Moret and LSU Student Body President Clay Tufts.

The commemoration of this state-of-the-art facility is significant, as it marks the first time in nearly 30 years that the Career Center staffs from employment services and student services have resided in the same building. The LSU Olinde Career Center, formerly Career Services, changed its name in January and officially moved into the former LSU Bookstore space in the Student Union on Aug. 22.

The redesigned space spans 17,000 square feet on two floors. The first floor houses staff offices and student services, in addition to the Cale P. Smith Student Financial Management Center. The second floor recruitment center includes 22 interview rooms for the On-Campus Interviewing Program, as well as the Humphrey T. Olinde Executive Conference Room, the Career Classroom and Campus Life student organization space.

Additional media wanting to attend the ceremony are encouraged to make arrangements with the LSU Olinde Career Center or LSU University Relations. For more information, contact Kenissa McKay at 225-578-2162 or, or Billy Gomila at 225-578-3867 or
