Southeastern Louisiana University is launching Lion Up Tuesdays to showcase pride in the university among faculty, staff and students.

“We will be encouraging everyone on campus to help promote pride in Southeastern through the wearing of green and gold on Tuesdays,” said Athletics Director Jay Artigues, who chairs the university’s Green with Pride Committee.

The new #TeamSoutheastern initiative will include team leaders on patrol on the campus every Tuesday, thanking people with donated prizes and presenting “pride citations” for those best showing off their Lion pride, Artigues said.

He said local businesses that display their Southeastern support also are slated to receive recognition in the future as part of #TeamSoutheastern.
