4 College Sophomore

Facilities: LSU has a pretty campus. It's large so you can move around a lot to find the perfect study spot. Lots of trees and green.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There's always a club to find or some party going on...or a bar, or a glow-in-the-dark paint party. Lots of options.

College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I don't eat at the dining hall. I went once during finals. It was actually the last day, so I think the cooks were just trying to get everything out of the kitchen. Also, most people were already home so not many people were eating, which explains the cold food.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's nice to live on campus because it's very easy to make it to any last minute event. They also come furnished so you don't have to spend too much on top of the room and board fee.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of off-campus housing options. You can walk anywhere slightly off campus and find somewhere to live. Parking can be an issue because there are so many people who come on campus. Some places aren't the safest, but then there are also very high-end housing areas. You just have to look around.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: LSU is a hugeeeeeeee football hub. People from all over town come to see the football games. Tailgating is a regular event.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: LSU is very diverse. There is always a group that you can find that will fit something you're looking for.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are so many people from all over the country. Everyone looks different...except for the fact that everyone is sweating from the heat...

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus, but some of my friends tell me stories about robberies near campus housing.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was randomly chosen to turn in a lot of paperwork, so that was a big hassle because the system wouldn't recognize it until at least 10 days later. I was constantly checking in. LSU offers a lot of scholarships, especially for residents.

College Sophomore

Majors: I am a transfer student so I'm not sure how the program is, yet.

College Sophomore

Majors: I'm not sure how classes are at LSU, yet. I start this fall.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Since LSU is so big, Greek life is one of the easiest ways to meet people.

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

College Freshman

Majors: I never had an internship

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are so many things to do here with such a diverse culture that no matter where you came from you will experience something new.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Everyone who is in Greek life loves it. I personally am not in it right now.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Having police on campus has its up's and down...

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I love how they have such a variety of foods that are served all the time. And they have options for everyone with specific diets.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: I have not had any internships so I cannot rate on this subject. But I am interesting in a interning job at maybe a hospital to help with my medical career. I'm not sure where to start about finding an internship.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: I haven't been in any programs or applied for any. I don't know where to go to find these types of things. I believe speaking with my advisor would be a good place to start.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I had trouble with financial aid because i was not from united stars. It might actually be breeze for people who were born here. I'm not sure, but I got the money I needed for my education and that's what matters the most.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: All in all, they are just trying to do there job and keep you safe from harm. When your on campus your under there responsibility. They are responsible for you so they just want to make sure you one hundred percent safe. So strictness is essential for your well being.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
