Lavender Graduation 2022

Please join LSU's LGBTQ+ project for our 9th Annual Lavender Graduation on Tuesday, May 17, 2022 @2pm-4pm in LSU’s Student Union Magnolia Room. Lav Grad does not replace students' commencement; rather it is a presentation of their lavender cords which can be worn during their specific college's graduation ceremony. Appetizers and drinks will be served during the event reception.

Lav Grad Event Information

Lavender Cords are $20 each & are Distributed during Ceremony (1 Cord Per Graduate). Please click here to register for Lavender Graduation !
