General Information

In the spring of 1997, the Student Government Senate voted unanimously in a resolution endorsing the concept of a student technology fee. "The Student Technology Fee at Louisiana State University is dedicated to the acquisition, installation, maintenance, and intelligent use of state-of-the-art technology solely for the purpose of supporting and enhancing student life and learning and of preparing graduates for the workplaces of the twenty-first century."
