Alumni Association's Happening sold out for second consecutive year

Aug 15, 2011 | General News

Louisiana Tech’s premier annual alumni event, “Happening” has sold out the Monroe Civic Center for the second consecutive year.
This year’s 30th anniversary edition, Happening XXX, is presented by Argent Financial Group and will feature Grammy Award-winning country music star and Louisiana Tech alumnus Kix Brooks as its keynote speaker.
The event will also feature Louisiana Tech President Dan Reneau, who will highlight the institution’s activities and accomplishments of the past year, and Head Football Coach Sonny Dykes to provide his outlook for the upcoming 2011 football season.
“The Happening continues to be the most attended and anticipated event for the Louisiana Tech Alumni Association,” said Ryan Richard, director of alumni relations for Louisiana Tech.  “This event is for the entire Tech family.  Whether you are a graduate, fan or just love Louisiana Tech, we invite everyone for what is always an evening filled with excitement.”
Richard says the Happening has even become a tradition itself for football fans and Tech alums, which draws people back to north Louisiana from all over the country to share in the success and growth of their university.
“The Happening’s success is due to the passion and excitement over Louisiana Tech,” said Jeff Parker, president of the Louisiana Tech Alumni Association.  “It represents the largest gathering, outside of sporting events, of the university’s alumni and is an opportunity for our alums to hear directly from our President about the vision and progress of our university.”
For those that are unable to attend the event in person at the Monroe Civic Center, there will be a free and live webcast at
