What’s Up Doc? The Animated Art of Chuck Jones is on display in the LSU Student Union Art Gallery through July 29th. The exhibit is on loan from the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity in Cosa Mesa, Calif. The center’s missions are to share Jones’ artwork and inspire creativity in others, no matter how young or old.

Read more about the exhibit on theadvocate.com

I wonder if I should figure out a way to get to Baton Rouge for a day before July 29th…

Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

Members of the United States Air Force Honor Guard performed a drill routine Thursday (3/8/12) on the Parade Ground.

This marks the first time the 16-man honor guard drill team visited the campus. The team is led by 1st Lt. Alexander Stanton, an LSU alumnus.

Once upon a time, that was almost me. I served two years in LSU’s Pershing Rifles, the combined honor guard component of LSU’s ROTC programs. We never did anything as fancy as these moves, however. Nor did we get to mount bayonets.

This is radically cool.

I wanted to personally thank Baton Rouge, LSU, Coach Paul Mainieri and the amazing LSU fans for the tremendous support they showed the cadets and fans from the United States Air Force Academy this past weekend. I had heard that LSU supporters were some of the best in the country, and they certainly did not disappoint.

I can honestly say that our team will never forget the unparalleled hospitality they received while visiting your great city and institution. Giving our team the opportunity to play and compete against such talent as Paul Mainieri and the LSU baseball team, in such an unbelievable facility was an experience our players, coaches and fans won’t soon forget.

Those of us wearing Air Force blue this weekend, in a sea of purple and gold might typically feel a little bit uneasy. However, your fans seemed genuinely appreciative of the cadets at the Air Force Academy and their future service to our great nation. To receive standing ovations during the middle of a Division 1 collegiate baseball game is an experience that is difficult to put into words. Nothing in my 20-year military and coaching career could have prepared me for that response and outpouring of support.

While we would have liked to walk out of Alex Box Stadium with a few more W’s this weekend, what we did walk away with simply cannot be matched.

You all should be very proud to be a part of such a great city and institution. Best of luck to all of you this season, and I think you may find you have a few more fans, who when not rooting for AFA will be pulling for LSU! It was Priceless! Thank You!
