LSU on the Weekend



 
After some confusion about whether or not James had class on Saturday (to make up from Hurricane Isaac closure earlier this semester) I rushed home from grocery shopping to pick him up and take him to school. 
 
 
 
He was unsure whether or not he had class and after receiving no response by email from his instructor, we had no choice but to show up.





James in the car - looking pretty serious.
 
 

I asked Jon to tag along because I thought we might get some exploring done on campus.
 
 

The building where James has Elementary Differential Equations and Linear Algebra - math for all you regular folks. 
 
While we were waiting, another student showed up for class. 
 
It happened to be the guy who tried to get James to let him copy a homework assignment a few weeks ago.  James said no.

Face paint splattered to protect the guilty.
 
 
James went in to see if the instructor or any other students were there. 
 
They weren't. 
 
But he took a few pictures of the building to show me where none of the others of us has ever gone before.
 
 

The hallway.

Classroom 114.
 
 

The 'view' from James' desk.
 
 

The classroom.
 
 
So, it appeared that there would be no class.  To not waste the trip, we took a visit to the new bookstore on campus so James could pick up a few 'Blue Books' for tests.
 
 

Barnes and Noble at LSU
 
 

The building has an attached parking garage.  Hopefully it will ease some of the parking congestion on campus.  Not sure about fees to park there though. 
 
 

The building just opened this week.  It's very pretty on the outside.
 
 

Geaux Tigers!
 
 
 

Inside
 
 

Mike the Tiger has his pilot's license.  Who knew??
 
 

Strike a pose.
 
 
 

An escalator takes you to the second floor to find books, textbooks and other things.
 
 

James finds the Blue Book and moves too quickly for me to snap the picture.

Hahahaha!
 
 

View from above.
 
 

Grampa - there are John Wayne bookmarks.  You should come get one!
 

Or you can choose Angry Birds!
 
 

There is a cafe for snacks/coffee.
 
 

Tiger gumballs!
 
 
They also have decals for your car/truck.
 

 

Take your pick!!
 
 
So, after James DIDN'T have class and we went to the bookstore, we finally made it home. 
 
I still had to get groceries.
 
 

So Alyssa and I took Matthew along with some milk and toast to keep him happy!
