FOMO: More commonly known as the fear of missing out
Did you miss out on a midnight round of laser tag with your friends?
Didn’t get a picture on the field in Tiger Stadium from the behind the scenes tour?
Miss out on TONS of free food and tips on prepping for finals last semester?
Well have no fear! Your Residential College program has events like those, as well as many others, going on all semester long.
Last semester students from the Agriculture Residential College took a behind the scenes tour of Tiger Stadium and had the privilege of listening to Mark Lee, assistant director of athletic facilities and grounds, speak about turf grass management and everything it takes to keep the field in peak condition. Do you know how many gallons of paint it takes to create the famous Eye of the Tiger before every home game? 15 Gallons!
Broussard Hall, home to the Residential College for Career Discovery, hosted a “Prepping for Finals” program in late November last semester. Students were treated to dinner and got some helpful tips on prepping for their first round of college finals. A counselor from The Center for Academic Success informed the crowd on available Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions and tutors to help with almost every subject.
Before classes started back up this semester, students in the Science Residential College enjoyed a round of midnight laser tag with award-winning scientist, Dr. Gabriela Gonzalez. Dr. Gonzalez, Professor of Physics at LSU and spokesperson for LIGO, talked to the res college students about her experience and achievements in the science community and helped inspire the possible future scientists in between games of laser tag, of course.
