Tigers in Fiesta Bowl?20 Nov 2018
Did y’all see this story last Saturday’s Morning Advocate? There is a chance the Tigers could be headed to Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl! Official announcements won’t come until December 2nd but that doesn’t mean we haven’t started planning. We are working with LSU Alumni in Baton Rouge to secure a block of tickets with the Traveling Tigers group. If you know you want to purchase tickets in this block, please let Tracee (email: email@example.com) know how many you’d like. No word on pricing at this time, but we do need to be ready to say how many we want once the game is secured. We’ll announce all the details as soon as we have them!
LSU visits College Station31 Oct 2018
It’s the end of the regular season, time to face the Aggies and the 12th Man. Vegas is calling us an “underdog” but we know that just drives our team to fight harder.
This will be the 57th meeting between these two teams. The first game took place 119 years ago and the Tigers were defeated 52 - 0. Guess 1899 was a rough year for our squad.
LSU Alumni Phoenix will be hosting the watch party at our Arizona home Old Town Gringos. Kickoff is at 5:30 here in Arizona. Skip the holiday leftovers and enjoy fresh chips and salsa with us!
2018 Scholarship Recipient23 Sep 2018
Did you know, every fall, LSU Alumni Phoenix provides a $500 scholarship to one student from Arizona enrolled as a freshman at LSU? This year’s recipient is Kelli Agnew from Sandra Day O’Connor High School. Kelli is a member of the LSU Beach Volleyball team and has wanted to play at LSU since visiting in 2016. These scholarships are made possible by our members annual dues and participation in our fundraising opportunities. Thank you for making this scholarship possible!
From Kelli: Hello LSU Phoenix, I wanted to thank you so much for the generous scholarship I received from the alumni. I am so grateful to have received this money and to be going to LSU and representing Phoenix! Thank you and Geaux Tigers! - Kelli
