"Dear LSU, the last four years have changed my life," Dunne said in her announcement video. "I'm here to say, I'm not Dunne yet," she continued, addressing the thousands of LSU Tiger fans who have supported her throughout her athletics career.

During the 2023-24 season, the Tigers won the first-ever NCAA Championship in school history.
