Tulane Univesity President Scott Cowen leads a second line into the Avron B. Fogelman Arena in Devlin Fieldhouse during the Great Scott! celebration thrown in his honor on Friday (March 28). Students, staff and faculty braved stormy weather to show their appreciation at the party, which was the culmination of events to thank Cowen for his 16 years of service to Tulane before he steps down on June 30.
Members of the Tulane Marching Band get into the spirit of the celebration.
Throughout the evening, Cowen posed with well wishers including facilities services staff member Juan Perez, right, and his family.
Members of The Roots of Music Marching Crusaders give it their all for the crowd.
The building was decked out for the event, which included free food, drinks and live music.
Donning a Scott Cowen hand fan, law school staff member Janice Sayas rocks to the music as her coworker, Kim Glorioso, looks on.
