Hurricane Ida Message

August 30, 2021

Dear LSU Community,

In the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, I wanted to address our students, faculty and staff directly.

We’re asking you not to rush back to campus. I know many of you are eager to check on the status of things, but please wait for us to give the all-clear once we’ve had the opportunity to make sure campus is safe for your return.

My sincere thoughts and prayers are with those who have been impacted by this storm. We’ll have more information to share later about ways that you can seek assistance, but until then, please know that your LSU family is thinking of you.


William F. Tate IV
LSU President
