Not only are the Baton Rouge community, LSU alums, and Tiger families invited to join in on Homecoming Week 2014 events and activities, but we have a special way to celebrate just for the community we call home.
Area businesses, nonprofits, civic organizations, and community groups are encouraged to join us as the campus collects nonperishable and canned foods for the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. Students will use these cans to build a small replica of Tiger Stadium, Mike the Tiger’s Habitat, and a fleur de lis to represent the 2014 Homecoming theme, “Louisiana State of Mind.” If you are interested in collecting cans for this cause, please contact the Homecoming Student Service Committee.
Little Tigers Spirit Video Competition
Does your little Tiger have a burning love for the LSU Tigers? Create a video no longer than 30 seconds of your little Tiger decked ears to tail in LSU gear, proclaiming his or her love for all things LSU. The winner will be awarded a ride in the 2014 LSU Homecoming Parade on October 25, 2014, and will have his or her winning video displayed via LSU Campus Life and LSU Homecoming social media sites. (Little Tigers must be 12 years old or younger.)
Paint the Town Purple and Gold
LSU is the heart of Baton Rouge, and Homecoming brings out all of the spirit and support the capital city has to offer. We’re encouraging local businesses to “Paint the Town Purple” to make the local area roar with pride during Homecoming Week!
Remember this year’s theme: Louisiana State of Mind. Show your Louisiana love for the state’s flagship university!
Some ways you can Paint the Town Purple and Gold are:
- Schedule school dress days the week of Homecoming.
- Collect canned goods for CANapalooza at your school, church, or workplace.
- Decorate your office, store front, or yard in your best purple, gold, and Tiger gear.
- Paint “Happy Homecoming” messages on your storefront windows.
- Refer a Tiger to LSU Admissions.
