Ragin' Cajun Memories

Traditions are the driving force in creating a university's distinct identity—they shape the shared college memories that alumni bond over.

UPC leads many of UL Lafayette's most cherished traditions via student committees that are as eclectic as the student body is, because everyone is part of UPC.
