President Chris and First Lady Jennifer Maggio invite you to the Flavor of Louisiana, a spring fundraiser & seafood extravaganza that celebrates our donors, supporters, alumni, and students at Northwestern State University.

This year we welcome back our special guest Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser.


The Louisiana Seafood Board has graciously partnered with the NSU Foundation on this event, which allows us to showcase specialty dishes from some of the greatest restaurants across Louisiana.

The Flavor of Louisiana will begin at 6 p.m. with music, cocktails, and specialty dishes at Northwestern State University’s Prather Coliseum.

This event is hosted by the NSU Foundation and the Louisiana Seafood Board. All proceeds go to support the NSU faculty, staff, programs, and scholarships.






NSU Faculty and Staff can purchase tickets at a discounted price of $55 for single tickets and $100 for couple tickets. Contact Erin Dupree at (318) 357-5699 to purchase discounted tickets.
