Every year in early to mid March, LJCLers and LSCLers alike swarm to the hive: Holiday Inn - South on Airline Hwy in Baton Rouge. This year, convention began with the Ides of March and continued through to the 17th.
LSCL had lots of fun moderating Academic Testing and Certamen, judging Graphic Arts, sequestering students for Creative Arts, running and DJ-ing Olympika, and putting on a spectacular That’s Entertainment which featured an appearance from the Ionas Fratres and some Ides of March Madness playoff coverage. We also hosted a lovely SCL/Slasher Ice Cream Mixer, where we added new members to our LSCL colony.
From creating an American Ninja Warrior-level obstacle course to debuting our first single, “Year 753 (B.C.E.),” LJCL Convention was a buzzing success! But we couldn’t have done it without our 18 amazing SCLers coming in from across the state and country. Special thanks to our fabulous guest-CL, Kristina Mihajlovic, for dropping by to say hello and sing the NSCL Song with us.
We can’t wait to all get together again for Nationals!
