Forever LSU - $25.00

LSU is an institution rich in history, having seen many landmark moments in its 150 years of operation, as well as paving the way for many other historical moments in Louisiana and worldwide.

As part of LSU's sesquicentennial celebration of the founding of the university, Louisiana Public Broadcasting and LSU have joined forces to create an hour-long documentary on the rich history of the university.

The colorful story of LSU starts in 1860 in Pineville when the State Seminary of Learning was founded as a small military academy whose first superintendent was William Tecumseh Sherman, later infamous for the burning of Atlanta during the Civil War.

The documentary also cites major events like the enrollment of the first female student in 1904 and the first black student in 1953 but it was not until the 1960s that the campus was truly integrated with Kerry Pourciau's election as Student Government Association President in 1972.

These are just some of the momentous events in LSU's history featured in the documentary. It also features interviews with famous alumni and scholars.
