It is time the alumni of Louisiana State University took matters into our own hands. For far too long, one of the schools most important assets - the library - has been neglected . The building is crumbling before our eyes. It doesn't just house books and microfilm and computers, it is the center of our quad and the center of our education . It is the place we studied, met friends, worked on group projects, crammed for finals and took refuge on those hot days when we just needed a break.
We all love our football team. We are proud of the work they do every day to represent our school. We are happy that donors stepped forward to provide them world-class facilities.
Now its time the rest of us step forward to provide a world-class facility for the entire student body.
More than 240,000 students have passed through the quad in the past 50 years. If each one of us can donate $25, we can raise $6 million toward a new library. Kick in $1 or $100 to show that alumni - and those who care about the school - are paying attention. I can think of no better way to send a message to our school's officials that this is a priority.
Your donations go straight to the LSU Foundation - which is dedicated to advancing the University's academic priorities. And that means the donation is tax deductible.
Update: If you're reservation to donating is that you hate the Library being located in the middle of the quad - know that the plan is to move the library to a different location on campus. You can read the master plan (which isn't funded) here: http://bit.ly/2SEbni2
