Ethan Lipsey

New Student Programs

A proud alumnus of LSU Alexandria (B.S. Psychology, '14) and current graduate student at LSU, Ethan coordinates the activities of the CAS, new student orientation, campus tours, and LSUA's Student Ambassadors. He also serves on several campus and community committees. "Prior to graduation, I found my niche in higher education through an internship in the Chancellor's office. I saw a different side of Higher Ed and knew this was the direction I wanted my career to go. Working in academic and student affairs allows me to not only be that initial point of contact for new students, but to work with these same students until they walk the stage at graduation." 

Stop by and visit with Ethan if you have any questions, concerns, or just to say hello.
