The UL Alumni Association is fortunate to honor Dr. David Fisher as our 2012 Spring Gala honoree.  The celebration is scheduled for Saturday, April 14th from 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and will be held on the grounds of the UL Alumni Center.  Dr. Fisher will be honored for his dedication and faithful support of the University and our community. The honor bestowed upon Dr. Fisher is not without sufficient merit. Dr. Fisher is our first Spring Gala honoree to have simultaneously won the Outstanding Graduate Award (1950);  won the Outstanding Alumni Award (1980); inducted into the UL Athletic Hall of Fame (1950); and is a UL Alumni Association Past President (1982 - 83.)

Instituted in 1997, the Annual Spring Gala is a fund raising event which University and community supporters await each year.  On a given Saturday, the University of Louisiana Alumni Association hosts the Annual Spring Gala, our only fundraising event, on the grounds of the beautiful Alumni Center.  The evening is one of the highlights of the year for us.  The funds generated from the Spring Gala go towards the continued maintenance and upkeep of the Alumni Center, one of the "gems of the University."

The Spring Gala offers fine food, entertainment and both silent and live auctions that includes a variety of attractive offerings such as original artwork, unique gift assortments, travel opportunities and Ragin' Cajuns merchandise.

For more information on the Spring Gala, please call 337.482.0900 or drop us an email at SpringGala@louisiana.edu.

Fresh off the heels of a spectacular football season and a dramatic win in the 2011 New Orleans Bowl, the Alumni Association would like to thank all who participated in the Bowl celebrations.

A special thanks goes out to our sponsors, who without their financial contributions, our Champions Square/Club 44 event might not have been possible. Those sponsors were Cox, Gauthiers' Oilfield Rentals, Popeyes, and Republic National Distributing Company.
