    Please join us in welcoming Chelsea Arseneault to the Center! Chelsea is the new graduate assistant who will be continuing the work started last year by Wyatt Winnie for the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service Oral History Project.This assistantship is funded by the LSU AgCenter and LSU College of Agriculture and is part of the two-year collaborative effort with LSU Libraries to document LCES. Chelsea was raised in Louisiana and holds two degrees from LSU: a B.A. in Anthropology and an M.A. in Teaching, and is now enrolled in the LSU MLIS program. Chelsea could not be more excited to get back into the field and close to her anthropological roots. Already, as part of her initial research and training, Chelsea has helped select audio clips for the Smith-Lever Exhibit listening station, which will open later this month. And this past week, Chelsea (at right) accompanied Center staff to observe a student training workshop at McKinley High School here in Baton Rouge (more on that next week!)-- photo by Kyle Tanglao.

    #TBT This photograph from c. 1890 shows a civil engineering class. On the back wall of the classroom hangs a portrait of William Tecumseh Sherman, LSU's first president and professor of engineering. Civil engineering has a special place in LSU's history with the first engineering degree at LSU being awarded to a civil engineering graduate in 1869. Also, in 1969, the first African American to graduate from the College of Engineering received his bachelor's in civil engineering. During 1908, the university was reorganized into individual colleges. At that time, the College of Engineering was established with civil engineering being one of four departments within the new college. Expanding the department's offerings to include graduate studies, the master's degree program in civil engineering was initiated in 1932 and the doctoral degree program in 1970.
