Reunions make us think about our law school experience. As we walk through the building and recognize familiar classrooms and settings, we also realize how much has changed. One thing that definitely is NOT the same is the tuition paid by today’s law students. The last ten years have been characterized by frequent budget cuts for all Louisiana’s higher education. LSU Law was not spared. Consequently, in-state tuition and fees exceed $23,000.
Since 2007, returning classes have made efforts to ease the financial burden of today’s students. They’ve created both endowed and non-endowed scholarship funds to be awarded in the name of the class. Last year, encouraged by a challenge from classmates, Judges Beth and Ross Foote, the Class of 1978 raised over $100,000, creating an endowment of $180,000 to mark their 40th reunion!
This year, the 40-year class has not been challenged, but they are committed to creating an endowed scholarship — at a minimum of $50,000. The other classes are “raising their time since graduation” — non-endowed funds to be awarded in the name of the class until the funds are exhausted. The Class of 2009 will celebrate ten years since graduation and will shoot for $10,000 by giving $10 a month for ten months. The Class of 1999 will raise at least $20,000 through monthly gifts of $20. The Class of 1994 will increase the monthly gift to $25 and raise at least $25,000. The Class of 1989 will raise at least $30,000 through monthly gifts of $30; the Class of 1989, at least $35,000. Any class that raises $50,000 will be able to endow their gift and make it last forever!
We sincerely hope you can return to campus on the occasion of your reunion, but even if you can’t, you can join us in spirit and be a part of your class scholarship effort. Make a real difference for a student.
