What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
Touring the campus would be a good idea. The campus takes about 15--20 minutes to cross, but don't let that stop you! It's not so big once you get use of it. If you're touring LSU, you should definitely stop by and see Mike the Tiger and the Dairy store. I encourage you to do the best you can and get into the Honors College. You get your own special location on campus with your own classroom building and dorms. Plus you get to schedule early. Game days are hectic, but there are lots of awesome football chants, and when LSU plays, they put on a show. I also encourage prospective students to apply REALLY early for housing since it goes quickly. If you can't get on campus, don't panic. There are lots of apartments near by that are on a free bus route to LSU. It's also important to get involved with a club as soon as possible so you don't feel lost by the number of people on the campus. We have lots of awesome things, including transit, the library where they host a rave once a semester, the union with lots of food, a book store, a parade grounds where they host lots of competitions and events. There's probably something for everyone here.

Make sure to apply early so that you can maximize your chances for scholarships as well as to increase your chances of living in the dorm of your choice.
Chris from Mandeville, LA
Go and and do stuff. This is the best advice I can give. There are student groups for everything, football games, events at the Union, etc. Just go out and do things and you will meet people and have fun. But don't forget to GO TO CLASS. Everything else is easier if you just go to class.
Michael from Tucker, GA
Make sure to get involved on campus! Make sure to make friends in each class and introduce yourself to the professor. Always stay on top of assignments and study hard!
Megan from Port Allen, LA
Apply early! Also if you have questions, they respond to e-mails really fast. Oh and the parking lot can be confusing, you have to buy a parking pass from the parking box instead of paying when you come back to leave.
Sarah from Baton Rouge, LA
The best advice I could give a prospective LSU student would be, if you are able to attend a bridge program or simply take classes during the summer before your first fall semester, do so. I had the opportunity to attend a summer bridge program which allowed me to attend two classes, have free room and board, and become familiar with the campus before the fall semester began. Not only do you become familiar with the campus and learn to live on your own, you also learn the way things are done at the school, as well as simply meet people.
Jordann from Humble, TX
Get involved, you won't regret it. You'll make so many more friends and probably do yourself some networking for the future in the process. Also I would definitely recommend going to class. Nothing breaks your motivation and focus in schoolwork faster than skipping out on classes. Immerse yourself in LSU and let yourself be filled with pride, and you'll be happier than you could ever imagine at LSU.
Kenneth from Baton Rouge, LA
Take the time to develop good relationships with your professors. I have had times when I need a letter of recommendation from a past professor of mine. In the case that you have 300 students in a class, it is essential to make lasting impressions with your professors in the chance that you may need their help down the road.
Go to athletic functions. There is nothing like going to support your university at a football game, gymnastics meet, or tennis match while you are still an undergraduate. You get in to most athletic functions for free with your student ID so take advantage of it! You meet some really cool people along the way as well! (I met Brady James at a gymnastics meet one time!)
Get Involved. Yes college can be overwhelming, but there are plenty of ways to get involved and meet people. I am a Director on our Programming Council for my sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha, and I also participate in many events for Volunteer LSU. My favorite is going to the local elementary school to read to the kids! LSU has an activities fair in our student union at the beginning of each semester for you to see what type of clubs and organizations are out there!
Lauren from The Woodlands, TX
Honestly, be yourself and do what makes you happy. Being here, i found a lot of things that I enjoy doing and found people that like me for who I am. And DO NOT become roommates with someone you are friends with, unless you've known them for a long time or lived with them before. I had to learn about that the hard way with one of my roommates because we are no longer friends. Also, if you don't have a car, make sure you make at least 1 friend with one.
