Mock ‘jazz funeral’ at LSU laments effect of budget cuts
Wearing black and holding signs such as, “Goodbye LSU – hello Louisiana State Community College,” several hundred students, faculty and staff led a jazz funeral march for education on Thursday around the Parade Ground.

Honoring the National Day of Action to Defend Public Education, the largely student-driven LSU effort was designed to protest ongoing state budget cuts against colleges and to raise community awareness.

“That’s what this is for — to get students more involved,” said organizer Bradley Wood, an LSU senior from Zachary helping to lead the new LSU “Proud Students” group.
