After suffering severe damage from terrible weather, South Carolina made the long trip to LSU at the alternative location of the scheduled football game. In efforts to make the trip a little easier on the Athletic Training and Equipment students and staff, the LSU Athletic Training students and L Club hosted a luncheon when they arrived. The L Club provided Voodoo BBQ for the visiting support staff including pulled pork, beans, mac and cheese, and bread pudding. The Athletic Training students were able to spend time with the students from South Carolina over lunch and make them feel comfortable during their time in Baton Rouge.
This luncheon was just one of the many things LSU
did to help South Carolina fans feel comfortable and aid the effort of restoring the damage done to their state. All of the ticket and concession sales collected from the game in Death Valley were donated to assist in the relief efforts in South Carolina. We are hoping that our efforts made the South Carolina support staff's trip to Baton Rouge a more enjoyable one. We also hope that mingling with our fellow students for a short time was able to take their mind off the things going on back home.
