“Our 37-year-old dream of a state-of-the-art Living Learning Commons for our students is finally a reality! It's incredible to have students back on campus from all over the state, and there’s nothing like seeing their reactions to this beautiful new building they now call home. This space is a labor of love by countless friends and employees of LSMSA, and we are grateful to everyone who's supported us in this journey."
Dr. Steven G. Horton | LSMSA Executive Director
