BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Students at LSU will soon get to enjoy a new easier to find Career Center on campus.
LSU faculty and staff broke ground on the LSU Olinde Career Center in the Student Union today, Friday, May 10.
The center will bring together to all outlets of career services into one location.
Students and alumni can get career development advice and other job search training.
LSU's Director of Career Services Mary Feduccia says putting the center in the student union will make it easier for students to find and utilize the services they offer.
"We are still having in the shape of students almost at the time of graduation coming in the office today saying I wish I had known about this, I'd have been using the services,” she said. “People don't just stumble by Career Services, they have to be coming to find us."
The new center will occupy the space of the current LSU Bookstore. Once construction is completed on the New Barnes & Noble bookstore across the street from the Student Union, renovations will begin for the LSU Olinde Career Center.
