    Default My Visit to Campus

    I took a trip to Lafayette for a friend's wedding this past weekend. This was the first time that I've been in Lafayette since June of 2008. I had read a lot on this website and theadvertiser.com about how much the campus has undergone comestic improvement. So, when I got there, I decided to take a walk around campus to see the improvements. And, I must say that I was amazed and proud at the same time.

    It was great to see just how much a little pressure washing and paint can do for a building. I loved seeing every building have a name plate, something that I think is very important for visitors and new students alike. I love how campus looks and it makes me proud to be an alumnus of The University of Louisiana.

    How dare you post something positive here!!

    Seriously though, the new name plates on the buildings add a nice touch to the buildings.

    I'm ready to go find my brick in the Walk of Honor when I go back to school in a couple weeks.

    Holycrap, I cannot believe someone found something positive but that you also took the moment to post about it. Here's hoping you start a trend.

    Good post.

    I love seeing the U, clean or not... and I really miss the Christmas lights on the oaks from, was it 20 years ago?

    I am proud of UL for a number of reasons. Yes, the campus. Moreso the faculty who taught me.

    But more than those is the culture of the place: an informal, collegial campus, where faculty and administrators do not treat students as underlings, but mores as friends, and even colleagues.

    And also because we are one of a minority of large schools where the local community is truly kind, supportive and generous to the U and our students.

    We don't realize how good we have it here, because not many of us have seen what it's like elsewhere...
