Southern University at Shreveport's 50th Golden Gala
Make plans to join us on May 5, 2018 for Southern University at Shreveport's 50th Anniversary event celebration! On September 19, 1967, Southern University Shreveport-Bossier (SUSBO) opened for instruction to the citizens of northwest Louisiana at 3050 MLK, Jr. Dr. (formerly Cooper Rd.). More than half a century later, SUSLA has expanded to serve a diverse population of nearly 7,000 students annually at three campus sites across the city of Shreveport, including its original location on MLK, Jr. Dr.
HONORING THOSE WHO HAVE HONORED US. Be there when we honor past administrators, alumni, and friends. We will also pay "Special Tribute" to individuals who have helped sustain this great institution through the decades!
MORE THAN JUST A TICKET - In the wake of unprecedented fiscal challenges facing the state's institutions of higher education, your support has never been more important than now. Your purchase of a sponsorship, table, or ticket to this event will help the University with the following initiatives:
ACCESS: Scholarship awards to help students enter and complete their degree or certificate program, with concerted efforts toward increasing access to disadvantaged and underserved groups.
STUDENT SUCCESS: Paid Internships/Externships; Academic support services to enhance student success and improve services to underrepresented populations.
ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE: Attract and retain world class faculty and preserve excellence in academic and workforce programming.
