    When considering LSU, identify your strengths and weaknesses. LSU has a very large student body population, meaning you will most likely be in larger classes. Also try to make the best grades possible in high school in order to receive more benefits that LSU offers to those only with a certain GPA etc. Getting early scheduling is a game changer. Another tip would be to take advantage of the Supplemental Instruction (SI) Sessions offered for classes. These are taught by a student who has taken the class in previous semesters and did extremely well; therefore, they are very beneficial.

    Make sure you research your major and the requirements needed to graduate with your degree on time. Don't choose a career for money because LSU will give wake up call.

    NOTE: I'm going to be brutally honest. I'm not going to sugar coat anything. This is my friends and I's honest opinions.... My unbiased opinion: This school is bad at communication. You will need to check things frequently and stay on top of your game. The information will rarely be presented to you starting out; you must find it by yourself. They will mess up a fee bill and lose your transcript; stay calm, it happens to everyone. Just work with them and it will all be fine.There are tons of helpful services at LSU. YOU MUST USE EVERY SERVICE TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. Try every single helpful thing they offer. If you don't like it on your first try, don't go ever again. It's that simple. This school has tons of companies that come to job fair. They are looking to hire and love the reputation of this school. Most people struggle because there are tons of distractions. The people who drink every Tuesday and Thursday and come to class late barely make it out. My Bias: If you want to go into something like Engineering, be prepared to work 24/7 starting your Sophomore year. Most of the teachers suck, and unlike your high school teachers, they could care less. They're there for research money. My advice? Work your living butt off, don't party, HAVE A PLANNER AND WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING, get every textbook, do work almost every night, have little social life, make time to enjoy football and basketball games, go to every SI session and tutoring session you can (at least give it a try for every class), email the hell out of your teachers (force them to work), and keep your hopes up. Tons of kids graduate from this university. It's not impossible, it will just take a lot of work and time. Everyone cries about Himes hall, drop out classes, and True/false tests. Just remember that written tests are God's gift because you can at least get partial credit. Some of the department has been excellent for me; like 5 teachers. You'll do fine; everyone is in the same boat.

    Join the STRIPES program the summer before your first semester. Take advantage of any and all free food opportunities. Don't use all your paw points in the first week (they'll come in handy during mid-term and finals week). Make sure you get to know your professors (they really can help you with your grades if you build a personal connection). Take advantage of your counselors and their advice. Don't let any moment pass you by because the next four years will go by quicker than you want.
