LSU's Lavender Graduation


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Lavender Graduation at Louisiana State University is a way to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and honor the graduates' academic achievement. Lavender Graduation does not replace the students' actual graduation, instead, it is a presentation of their lavender cords which can be worn during their graduation ceremony. The event will feature a welcome from the university's administration, a keynote speaker, and the presentation of the graduates' cords. Students may choose a family member, friend, or significant other to present them with their cords. This event is open to anyone in the LGBTQ+ Community, as well as straight and cisgender allies.
