2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The 459 dining hall ratchet! No two things ever go together and half time they have nothing by the time you get in there! A few staff members are really nice though!

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most girls are bitchy and the guys are players who like to party and hook up as much as possible!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life makes it fun and interesting, except for renting out the bars for private parties! The stupid frat costumes for parties and matching monogram long sorority shirts are a part of campus life!

3 College Freshman

Weather: Weather is usually good and typically doesn't close school except for the unexpected snow days last winter.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The worst dorms are Herget, Miller, Acadian and McVoy. Blake is by far one of the best and convenient so I'd try to get in there. The other stuff is okay but if you want to party a lot living off campus is better for you!

Local Atmosphere: Baton Rouge is terrible! If you like fearing for your life while pumping gas and the worlds worst pot holes that tear your tires up then LSU is a great idea! It's also the AIDS capital of the US so boys wrap it and girls, close em! Crime is high and stuff to do is low.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: My dorm is pretty chill, they RA's really don't care what we do. Dorm visitations are common, all night guests are fine if you're not dumb and don't use the opposite gender bathrooms!!

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Bars are abundant, look no further than Tigerland for the most ratchet of night life or bar experiences. If you like 50 cent shots, falling down drunk easy girls and piss on the dance floor Reggies is right for you!

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Everyone drinks and parties and smokes. There's really no escape to it! If you don't do it, people will make you feel weird and try to pressure you.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of off campus options. Not all are the safest so chose wisely and in good areas. Most are really nice and new but also pricey!

1 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Expect emergency alerts often! Never walk around alone at night unless you want to be jumped or almost kidnapped.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The campus is extremely diverse and there really is a group for everyone!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Took time and was somewhat difficult but worked out. Still owed money afterwards though and the offices do not play around without their money!

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The transit and bus system is convenient and has a wide variety of hours. You can call the transit system and be picked up anywhere on or near campus and dropped of wherever in a timely manner.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: GEAUX TIGERS!!! Need I say more? LSU revolves around purple and gold football.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The main library has many computers, most are newer apple desktop computers. Many students have their own laptops so computers are always available for use.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are a little small but other than that I have no problem with them.

Greek Life: All of the Greek frats and sororities do a lot for the campus as well as the community.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I really enjoy being on LSU's campus. It's welcoming.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Appointments at the health center are easy to make. A student sometimes is even able to get an appointment the day that they call if a doctor is available. On the other hand, students are also able to walk in and make an appointment. It is located on campus, and the workers and staff are really helpful.

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options are very convenient and close to campus. They have a variety of places near all of the apartments that offer food that college students are able to afford. The selections are great and the restaurants do offer healthier choices. Some of the restaurants are a good hangout place to watch football games, basketball games, etc. Overall, the selection if phenomenal and a student will always be able to find a place to sit down and eat.

5 College Freshman

Majors: It is difficult and makes me feel overwhelmed sometimes. But it is still one of the best fields if you want a job when you graduate. Also the material is very interesting and we get to learn cool things. I really like it.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Internships in engineering are paid.

Academics: There are several places to study. Many students study in the library or one of the many computer labs. The professors in my major are helpful if you can find them. The workload depends on you course of study. Registration is not difficult.

Drug Safety: Most students drink. But I have never been pressured to do anything I wouldn't want to do. If you want to just drink cokes or Dr Pepper, etc. nobody will give you a hard time.

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.
