LSU's ROTC cadets regularly held military parades on the Parade Ground, hence the name. Practice for close-order drill was held here daily, as were formal parades in full military uniform for events such as Freshman Day, Memorial Day, and Veterans Day. Today, this tradition continues with LSU Salutes and President's Day.
Please help us preserve LSU history by picking up after your pet and refraining from wearing cleats or using tent stakes or glass on this historic, open greenspace.
