3 College Freshman

Academics: The workload is self explanatory. They give average amounts of homework depending on the class, core classes give more homework etc. The professors are great and are always there to help if extra help is needed. Registration is easy because it is all online. And no matter what class or subject there is always a study group for what you need help for.

Academics: There aren't many chemisty majors at LSU so the science department really pushes us and gives us all the help we can get. The workload is tough, but manageable, and there are plenty of work study and research options available for those who want to do that.

Majors: LSU offers plenty of options that allow you to further your study. There are work study programs or there are options to do research with a professor. I really enjoy it especially since most people are really into their program, just as I am.

There is always something to do, and so many people that you can become friends with. There are lots of activities and clubs that you can be apart of. If they don't have something you want, you could come up with your own group!

Sure, LSU students gripe about everything from parking to the weather to questions about academics and more, but rarely will you meet a student who will actually tell you they wish they had gone somewhere else. The overall experience of LSU outweighs any factor students could imagine. There is an overwhelming sense of pride and allegiance to the University that unites all LSU students. The phrase, "I bleed purple and gold," holds more true than anyone could imagine.

LSU is all about experiences. It's the experiences of community, whether it be through football games, nightlife, more academic organizations, or through living on campus. Students appreciate the fact that they are at something far bigger than themselves. The size of the University presents students with opportunities to do so much from getting involved academically to finding a boyfriend or girlfriend. It's about the experiences of involvement, from joining a frat to working on campus to not doing anything at all. LSU seems to offer anything any student could imagine. The experience of going to LSU is so unique and exciting, students cannot even fathom what it would be like to have gone somewhere else.
