UL LAFAYETTE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION CONNECTS WITH LOCAL BUSINESSES
 
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette Alumni Association is giving businesses the opportunity to show their Ragin’ Cajun pride.

Business partners participating in the Association's Membership Discount Program are being offered the opportunity to hang a complimentary UL Lafayette flag or banner at their place of business to show their support and pride in the university and the Alumni Association.

Through this initiative, the Association aims to increase its visibility, as well as the university's, and even more so hopes that this effort will become “contagious” among other businesses and people within the community.

UL Lafayette flags and banners can be purchased at select retailers in Lafayette. Paid members of the Alumni Association can purchase a flag or banner at a discounted price of up to 20% or more by calling (337) 482-0900 or (800) 844-4875.

Paid members also benefit from special discounts offered by business partners in the Membership Discount Program. For a complete list of retailers, more information on the UL Lafayette Alumni Association and/or to become a member, please visit www.LOUISIANAalumni.org
