My hopes for the current Ogden Honors College are two: 1. that the undergraduates matriculating in the college today and in the future are rewarded as richly as I was; and 2. that a well-resourced, credible program matching well-qualified and highly motivated students with dedicated faculty members will produce a national beacon of educational excellence attracting the best students from Louisiana, the Gulf South, and beyond, thereby inspiring our state's citizens to identify LSU with educational achievement in addition to athletic achievement.
