LSU has recognized 46 students as the Class of 2017 for Leadership LSU, an annual spring program coordinated by LSU Campus Life on behalf of the LSU Office of the Dean of Students.

Leadership LSU is a campus tradition during which students explore the concepts of adaptive leadership through group discussion and extracurricular lectures with LSU and community leaders. The program connects students’ leadership experiences with the challenges of their future career choices, to develop a leadership network and to deepen an understanding of leadership within a larger societal context, according to a news release.

Members of the class participated in an application and selection process and in seminars throughout the spring semester. For students who ordered one, LSU will present a stole to wear on their academic robes at some commencement ceremonies.

Members of the Leadership LSU Class of 2017 include Abigail Holley, an English junior concentrated in creative writing, of Zachary.

The Leadership LSU Class of 2017 volunteered with the Family and Youth Services Center in Baton Rouge during the fifth annual Geaux BIG Baton Rouge service day on April 1. Geaux BIG Baton Rouge is a one-day event, planned by a student organization of the same name within LSU Campus Life and seeks to unite LSU students and Baton Rouge residents through service in order to strengthen the university’s relationship with the community.
