How does the magazine benefit students, alumni and the university?
       
The magazine benefits students in a number of ways. For instance, a major section of the magazine reports student achievements and activities. La Louisiane also gives a student editor the chance to gain hands-on experience by assisting with almost every phase of magazine production.

Its image building component benefits students because it informs business, governmental and community leaders — as well as alumni and UL Lafayette Foundation members — about the university. It has been the university's experience that people who are familiar with the university and its achievements are most likely to support it.

Increased visibility through La Louisiane helps UL Lafayette grow in stature. This increases the value of a degree from the university and builds pride among students, alumni and the community.
