I realize this is sort of random, but does anyone have any experience with this particular department at LSU? And specifically with its Textiles, Apparel and Merchandising program? My 16-year-old stepdaughter (now a high school junior) mentioned that she might be interested in a career in fashion -- probably merchandising rather than design -- and -- SIGH -- yes -- SIGH -- she will consider going to LSU -- SIGH -- even though she had planned to go out of state for college -- SIGH -- but only because -- SIGH -- she probably qualifies for TOPS -- SIGH -- and they'll pay her tuition -- SIGH. Even though I took my BA from LSU and did a bit of graduate work there over the years, I had no idea the purple and gold even had such a program. It is so far off my radar that I had to look up the building -- it's the one across the street from the Life Sciences Building behind the Union -- and I know nothing about it. So TIA and I can't wait to see her shit a suburban white girl brick when I tell her it's in the College of Agriculture.
