Here at DIG, we wanted to take a look at some of the most impressionable events and moments from campus this year. From moments of community awareness to moments of dancing and having a good time, 2015 has definitely been one to remember!
This year’s Silent Disco events were held on March 26 and September 18. Put on by the Student Activities Board, the free, student events brought out tons of Tigers ready to meet new friends while whipping, jigging and nae nae’ing.
Black Out Wednesday
2015 also brought out some of the greatest protests and student leadership we’ve ever seen. During the racially heated period in Baltimore, Maryland many LSU students decided to show their support by bringing awareness to racial discrimination. Students gathered in the Quad at LSU to demonstrate their support to those in Baltimore in a special edition of “Black Out Wednesday” on April 29.
And who could forget this year’s Groovin’ event held on April 17. Headlining the event was Young the Giant along with many other artists such as Parachute, COIN and The Dulac Smack. Hundreds of Tigers came out to get their groove on.
Tigers also showed their hospitality and charity during the LSU vs. South Carolina football game. As South Carolina experienced unprecedented floods, the game that was originally scheduled to be held at South Caroline was eventually moved to Tiger Stadium. LSU showed their support by donating money, giving words of kindness and taking action to make Gamecock fans feel at home.
DIG’s Bar Crawl
And last but certainly not least, our very own Tigerland Bar Crawl, which was held on October 23. Not only did students get free beer and food for $5, but they also got to meet some of the coolest people around and make tons of new friends.
