No matter where you live, we love to see how everyone adds a bit of Ragin’ Cajun flair to their everyday lives. Here are four ways that you can show off your favorite University in 2021!
1.) Purchase a Specialty License Plate:
Show off your pride anywhere you drive with a UL Lafayette specialty license plate! These special license plates are currently offered in Louisiana and Texas.

You can shop from the comfort of your own home and have a brand-new UL Lafayette shirt delivered right to your doorstep.
3.) Wear Red on Fridays
Now that you have some new UL Lafayette threads, it’s time to show them off. Ragin’ Cajuns across the world wear red every Friday to show their support for the University. This tradition allows those near and far to come together and showcase that Ragin’ Cajun pride. Make sure to get some red clothes ready so that you won’t miss any Fridays in 2021.
4.) Be an Ambassador
The best way to show off your pride for the University is to be an ambassador anywhere you go.
