Classroom

Allie Walljasper continues to make strides in the classroom. She is majoring in international studies in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and is on track to graduate.

Character

Walljasper is the type of player any coach would want on their team. She cares about her teammates, her coaches, her school and her community. She is an example of living a selfless, servant-leader type of life. She is the picture of consistency and has rarely had a bad day either athletically or personally. Not everything has come easy for her during her time, and she worked extremely hard for everything she has attained, especially in the classroom. She has matured and grown as a person in her time at LSU, largely in part to her constant buy-in to those who are here to help her succeed. She has aspirations of being a coach, and any program in the country would be lucky to have her influence their players. She has worked a great deal in the community in the sport of softball at the youth level. Many young girls have become huge fans of hers because of how she has given her time and effort to help them learn the game.

Community

Over the course of her time as a Tiger, Walljasper has amassed over 40 hours of community service. She has helped with flood recovery, volunteered at local schools, assisted with Thanksgiving meals on campus and helped out with the LSU Halloween trick-or-treating event.
