Day Three - Louisiana State University & Southern Louisiana University
Today girls traveled to Baton Rouge to visit Louisiana State University, or better known as LSU. Founded in 1860, LSU is the flagship institution of the
state of Louisiana and is one of only 30 universities nationwide holding
land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant status. Girls are pictured with LSU's bengal tiger mascot, Mike statue.

Day Two - Toulane University & Xavier University of Louisiana
Girl Scouts toured Tulane University today. Tulane University was founded in 1834 and is one of the most highly regarded and
selective independent research universities in the United States.
Girls also toured Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans. Xavier was founded by Saint Katharine Drexel and the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament in 1915 and is the only historically Black, Catholic University in the United States. While in New Orleans girls dined at Bubba Gump Shrimp House.
Day One - Road Trip to Louisiana
Met my fellow traveling flock this morning in Memphis and
boarded a bus bound for New Orleans. Our first stop was Winona, MS for lunch
and to pick up two more non-feathered friends. Through torrential downpours, we
made our way to Louisiana. The sights along the journey were very interesting;
very different from my own native home. My favorite things I saw along the way,
were the shrimp boats docked as we rode into New Orleans. We got a little lost
when looking for our dinner destination, but my Girl Scout friends and I always
enjoy adventure. We chomped on yummy cheeseburgers and pulled pork sandwiches
at Hard Rock Café in the French Quarter, all while dancing and singing along to
our favorite tunes. Following dinner, we headed to our nesting spot for the
night. This, too, turned out to be another adventure, as we got lost yet again.
Now we sit snuggled up in our beds, looking forward to the days ahead.
