A note from the editor: 2022 Ragin’ Recognition

UL Lafayette’s L’Acadien yearbook was recognized at the 2022 Ragin’ Recognition Awards held at the Petroleum Club and hosted by the Office of Student Engagement and Leadership. L’Acadien received the Organization of the Year award for the 2021 – 2022 academic year.

Along with receiving such great honors as a group, Director of Student Publications and also serves as L’Acadien Advisor, Matthew Tarver received Outstanding Organization Advisor of the Year.

This shows the such incredible work done by our staff this past year and how they can be recognized by the University as a whole. I have had the great honor to be Editor-in-Chief this past year for such an amazing group of individuals. Everyone on staff from our designers, writers, and all other support staff have out did themselves in not only their hard work, but also their dedication to the organization.

I would also like to recognize one of our writers that also won several individual awards. Faryal Atif took home two awards, one being Outstanding Graduate Student. The other award she took home was the 1989 Society award.  The 1989 Society award recipients exemplify the highest achievements of a well rounded leader and some of the most significant contributions to the university community.

Faryal Atif was awarded Outstanding Graduate Student and was inducted into The 1989 Society

In January, we were also awarded a first-place award from the American Scholastic Press Association in New York in which we competed against universities from across the country. This award was contributed to the hard work put on by past staff on the 2020 L’Acadien yearbook, entitled Focus.

I look forward to everyone seeing what our amazing staff has worked on this year and we appreciate all of the support we have received from various individuals within the University.
