RNR Student Nominted for Homecoming Court
Jennifer Tuohy from Mandeville, LA is a Senior majoring in NREM with a concentration in Conservation Biology and minors in Political Science, Environmental Management Systems, and Leadership Development.
She says “Louisiana is known for its culture and diverse people that make up the bayou state. The people are known for their southern hospitality and easy going spirit. There is a sense of community that is shared among everyone and LSU is a great representation of that spirit. Being in the College of Agriculture, when I think of my Louisiana State of Mind I think of natural resources. We are a Land Grant university with this university’s genesis as an A&M school. Like most incoming freshman, I thought the College of Agriculture was just about farming. However, now when I am on campus I see Agriculture all around me; from the dairy store that sells the beloved ice cream, to the beautiful oak trees that are a prize possession, and even the famous Louisiana Saturday Nights in Tiger Stadium with the perfect turf grass. As a freshman, I would have never labeled any of these as Agriculture but it is. When I think of Louisiana I picture the swamp lands and great southern food. That is my Louisiana State of Mind and without LSU I would have never seen these things as Agriculture.”
The LSU student body will vote via myLSU for Homecoming King and Queen from Monday, October 13 at 12:00 p.m. until Thursday, October 23 at 11:59 p.m. Only senior members of the Homecoming Court are eligible for Queen and King.
