UL Lafayette Yearbook Archive

That's right - ice skating on the swamp. That's just one of the amazing stories that goes untold about our wonderful campus. As you can see, hidden gems are a part of ULL's history. Depicted in this picture, professors and students alike skate across a frozen swamp in the year of 1962, just one year after the school was renamed from Southwestern Louisiana Institute (SLI) to the University of Southwestern Louisiana (USL) - See more at:

UL Lafayette Honors Program 3rd Floor Fundraiser


Go Here to See Pictures from the 2016 Honors Soiree d'Excellence

In 2014 the Honors Program presented a night of enchantment and pride, the Honors Soiree' d'Excellence. The Honors Program was able to raise nearly $5,000 with the help and proceeds of many students, professors, and community leaders for the expansion of the 3rd Floor of Judice-Rickels Hall. In 2016, the Honors Program supplied another opportunity for individuals, family members, alumni, and friends of the program to gather and dine in honor of the program and in order to raise funds for the 3rd floor expansion. Provided is a brief video created by Honors Students explaining our continued need.

If you would like to help us continue to increase the expansion of our 3rd floor, please do not hesitate to donate.
