All 428 Windows Have Been Funded!
Through the years the exterior of Tiger Stadium has fallen into disrepair, as many of the dormitory windows that cover the outside of the stadium are cracked, rusted and broken. That is why the Tiger Athletic Foundation started a campaign this fall to preserve Death Valley.
As of Monday, November 1, LSU fans have made pledges to repair all 428 windows!
In recognition of their $2,000 contribution the donors' names will be permanently displayed along the outside of the stadium. Any extra donations received will be placed in a Tiger Stadium maintenance reserve account for future endeavors in the project.

"My first observation about Tiger Stadium when I arrived at LSU was the poor condition of the outside of the stadium, particularly the number of broken windows," said Joe Alleva, LSU's Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics. "So we launched the campaign to replace every window in the facility, beginning with the north end where thousands of fans gather each Saturday to see the football team and the Tiger Marching Band march down Victory Hill.
"We only have one Tiger Stadium. We're not going to build a new Tiger Stadium. It's our venue. It's a great venue for watching football, but we need to take care of it. Thanks to the greatest college football fans in America for making this campaign such a huge success."
