Cypress Lake is a treasured campus landmark. It is a carefully controlled and delicate wetland teeming with plants and wildlife such as bass, catfish, red-ear turtles, blue herons, and, of course, alligators.

UL Lafayette was the first university in the country with such a wetland on campus.

Every year students, faculty, and staff gather for canoe races in Cypress Lake during Lagniappe Week. Two per canoe, they paddle as quickly as they can through the water, around the cypress trees, and back to shore.
