    UL 1984, 1999 . . . . Re: University of Louisiana Making Name Strides

    Well I think the most important thing I learned in his experiment is that Cajun children are smarter than chimps from a very young age, and both are smarter than the War Hoax, and any LTU bulldog.

    So if the name changes to leave off Lafayette is that going to make a difference in the school's status?

    Not on the front end but on the back end (getting a job) "of Louisiana" and "ULM" will be of more credit than "at Lafayette" and "at Monroe"

    1984 graduates of the "University of Louisiana" can attest.

    Default UL and Tulane to be Investigated

    Both Tulane and UL are being called to be investigated for off campus actions.

    I know it got your attention and is true but not what you might have thought at first.

    It is for the monkey farms and some animal rights group is calling for the Feds to step in and see what happened to Chimps and monkeys at both places!!!
