Each year, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette works with a local food bank during UL Lafayette Homecoming to collect at Cajuns Can Care the most cans possible. In 2015, the students of the Honors Program were able to collect 1,000 cans and deliver them to the Cajuns Can Care network. This year, Mrs. Mary Ellen Stegall, a huge part of the Honors Program and an Honors psychology professor, set the goal at 1,400 cans for the students. Honors students blew it out of the water collecting 1,562 cans in total. Geaux Cajun Scholars!

As a great honor for the Honors Program, two of the four Honors Homecoming Court came to support Honors students as they brought the cans to the destination for the Cajuns Can Care event. Pictured left they are holding some of the items, which often included not just canned items but other boxed foods as well. Thank you to Katie Wappel and Megan Parfait for coming to support your fellow Honors students! As well, we with to thank all of the Honors students who donated cans and time! We had one of the highest turn outs for cans this year, and You can read about it in the UL Lafayette paper, The Vermillion. Link provided below.

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.
