LCA Members,

Jane Webb, current Latin instructor at LSU, has organized a wonderful celebration of classics at LSU, in conjunction with LSU Day. This event will occur on next Saturday, April 24, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Since I am a graduate (twice, ’92 and ’94) of the LSU classics program and one who continues to work in the field, Jane has asked me to speak about the classical tradition through the years at LSU. My talk will focus on the many memorable “characters” who have served in the classics department there. My talk will occur at 12 noon in the Hill Memorial Library. I would love to see you all there, but in particular, those of you who have had memorable experiences taking Latin or Greek classes at LSU. There will be a chance for audience participation so PLEASE – come join us for a trip down the LSU classics memory lane.

LCA Vice-President

  1. An update from LSU Communications & University Relations on 22 April 2010:

    LSU Day, which was scheduled for this Saturday, April 24, will be postponed until the fall, due to expected severe weather.

    Although LSU Day was billed as a rain or shine event, safety is the university’s top priority and after consulting with the Louisiana Office of State Climatology and the National Weather Service, the university has used all information currently available to make the difficult decision to postpone the event because of the potential for hail, lightning, damaging winds and tornadoes.

    While the worst of the severe weather is expected early Saturday morning, ground conditions, including possible flash flooding, may hinder extensive set-up scheduled to take place late Friday into early Saturday. The safety of event staff and volunteers and guests on campus is of foremost importance to the University.

    We will announce a rescheduled date at a later time through,, local media, and broadcast e-mail.

    In the interest of cost efficiency, the university is asking volunteers and exhibitors to hold onto your LSU Day T-shirts and exhibit materials for use in the fall. Parking passes and meal vouchers that were distributed are void, and we will issue new ones prior to the rescheduled date. Please help us spread the word to friends, family and colleagues about the postponement.

    Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience; we regret any inconvenience this postponement causes, and we hope you will make plans to participate this fall.
