LSU hosting virtual graduation event May 15
BATON ROUGE - The coronavirus outbreak may have waylaid plans for May commencement ceremonies, but LSU says it will still send off its graduating class later this month.
The university announced Monday that it will host a virtual graduation ceremony online starting at 10 a.m. May 15. The event will include a message from interim President Thomas Galligan and LSU alumni.
After the ceremony, the names of the graduating class will be displayed in Tiger Stadium.
