Senior Symposium 2016

Fifteen cadets and midshipmen took part in inaugural sessions of the Ole War Skule Senior Symposium. The yearlong program for select ROTC seniors at LSU and Southern University is designed to prepare the future officers for leadership assignments and responsibilities after graduation. The first session, Military Justice/ Ethics and the UCMJ, was held on Aug. 24. Panel members included Judge and Navy Captain Mike McDonald, Army Colonel and local attorney John Dunlap, and Judge and AF Major (retired ) Luke LaVergne. On Sept. 21, Maj Eric Mehrtens, currently on active duty assignment presented Social Media Footprint and the Internet. All presenters are graduates of LSU. Senior Symposium is cosponsored by Cadets of the Ole War Skule in cooperation with the ROTC Cadre. LSU military alumni play a key role in the new venture, sharing what they have experienced and learned during military journeys.
