2012 College Tour - Louisana & Mississippi

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.  

Stay fabulous!
