LSU Is Building an $84M L-S-U Shaped ‘Lazy River’

Is this necessary? No. Is it awesome? Yes.

EAG News stated:

Funding for the massive lazy river – which will be in the shape of letters L-S-U – is funded by student recreation fee increased approved by students in 2011, and is part of a larger overhaul of school facilities that also include swimming pools, a sun deck, a 40,431 sq. ft. cardio and weight room, eight lane lap pool, 35-foot climbing wall, nine tennis courts and a fitness assessment center.

“The fact that we can build this pool on one budget while the university is sinking on another shows that overall there is a problem with the way universities finance their work,” LSU Faculty Senate President and professor Kevin Cope told 103.5 FM.

When it comes to doing it up big, the south doesn’t really play any games. If you don’t like it, learn to live a little.
