    The Louisiana Tech Alumni Association built the Argent Pavilion in the Fall of 2008. The pavilion has been used during Louisiana Tech home games as the site of Louisiana Tech Alumni tailgating. I have enjoyed the alumni tailgating several times. It is a great place to catch up with former classmates and enjoy a brief pre-game reunion. The pavilion is also the best place to watch the Louisiana Tech Band of Pride as they perform during the tailgating pep rally. Other than hosting tailgating fun, the community and the university have also utilized the Argent Pavilion for meetings, recruiting opportunities and other events.
