LSU is a large university where students can take a multidisciplinary approach to educating themselves through opportunities in the classroom and paid professional work. It is this professional work that gave me the means to become a financial auditor AND an enterprise software architect with the liberal arts training necessary to express ideas effectively. LSU's contribution to my life can be expressed in "dollars and sense."
