BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Louisiana State University is taking its Scholarship First agenda on tour across the state, beginning March 13.

The agenda is the university’s dedication to achieving excellence in all aspects for the students and Louisiana as a whole. The agenda prioritizes agriculture, biomedical, energy, defenses, and coastal resilience.

The inaugural Scholarship First bus tour will feature LSU President William F. Tate IV and other guests as they travel around the state to learn more about Louisiana’s key industries and meet with elected officials to continue to align LSU’s priorities with those of the state.

“LSU is a driver for the future of our state and is important to so many Louisianians, but not everyone can make it to any of our eight campuses or 64 extension offices. So, we’re taking LSU to the people,” Tate said. “This is going to be a listening tour and an awareness campaign all rolled into one. We’ve got a very aggressive itinerary and can’t wait to meet our friends out on the road.” 

According to LSU’s website, the tour will begin at LSU’s original campus in Pineville, La. on March 13. The tour ends in Convent, Thursday, March 16.
