Generations of Black Alumni to Reunite for Homecoming This Weekend

 

            BATON ROUGE – Generations of LSU black alumni and friends will return to LSU to share memories, reunite and celebrate legacies of LSU legends when the LSU Office of Multicultural Affairs hosts the 2009 Black Alumni Reunion from Nov. 13-15 during LSU's 2009 Homecoming Week.

           

            What a perfect time to provide the opportunity for hundreds of African-American alumni and friends of LSU to reconnect, relive and celebrate the university's growing diversity, commitment to community, living legacies and Tiger pride. With a reunion theme of "Generations of Family," the Black Alumni Reunion expects to attract a cross-generation of LSU African-Americans and other ethnic minority graduates.

           

            "The Black Alumni Reunion will provide the opportunity for the LSU Office of Multicultural Affairs to bolster alumni relations, while securing support to sustain and grow cultural, mentoring and recruitment programs and campus infrastructure like the African-American Cultural Center, while developing new initiatives like scholarships and research grants," said Chaunda Allen, director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs and reunion chair.

           

            During the reunion, alumni will attend a welcome reception and a presentation, "LSU Presents," which will highlight the progress of diversity and African-American student affairs at LSU; hear from LSU black alumni legends from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s; tailgate and network with existing students and other alumni; and celebrate during an alumni soiree. The A. P. Tureaud Sr. Black Alumni Chapter of the LSU Alumni Association will host the legends event.

           

            Reunion attendees will have the opportunity to get updates on diversity from the Office of Equity, Diversity & Community Outreach and learn more about the A. P. Tureaud Sr. Black Alumni Chapter. This Black Alumni Reunion marks the third of its kind in LSU's approaching 150-year history.

           

            Registration for the Black Alumni Reunion is available online at the Office of Multicultural Affairs' Web site, www.lsu.edu/oma. Priority registration ends on Thursday, Sept. 10, while registration closes on Friday, Oct. 9. In addition, varying levels of corporate sponsorships are available for this event. The deadline for sponsorships and advertisements is Friday, Sept. 18.

           

            For more information regarding the reunion, please visit www.lsu.edu/oma or contact Allen at oma@lsu.edu or 225-578-4339. For more information regarding the A. P. Tureaud, Sr. Black Alumni Chapter, please contact Melody Robinson at lsuaptbac@yahoo.com.
