Tiger Twelve



In 1995, students, staff and faculty came together to craft a statement of position regarding our basic principles as an academic community. The LSU Commitment to Community states our expectations for each LSU community member.

To promote these principles, each spring, the Office of the Dean of Students recognizes 12 outstanding seniors who contribute positively to the life of the campus and surrounding community. These 12 individuals  are then recognized as the Tiger Twelve. In keeping with the LSU Commitment to Community, these students:

  • hold themselves to the highest standards of academic, personal, and social integrity
  • practice justice, equality, and compassion in human relations
  • respect the dignity of all persons and accept individual differences
