The UL California Ragin' Cajun Club was formed back in the late 1980's by Ron Gresham and a few others in the Dana Point/San Clemente California area. Each year the Club hosts a crawfish boil as a fundraiser. Initially crawfish boil events were attended by about I 00 alumni, family and friends. Over the years the events grew to over 300 people.
The Club initially gave $1500 to the alumni center to sponsor a bench in the garden. After additional successful crawfish boils it became apparent that they might be able to reach the minimum necessary to endow a scholarship in the Club's name. After many years, they managed to raise $10,000 to officially create the UL California Ragin' Cajun Club Endowed Scholarship to benefit Engineering students.
The listing of alumni in the Southern California area from UL Lafayette lists several hundred alumni.
