3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is worth looking into considering the on-campus price is high and fill up quickly. Research off-campus housing before signing a lease and look at the prices. Look around at the independently owned apartments before looking at the apartments owned by corporations. Apartments on the LSU bus routes are very convenient too!

5 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics is everything at LSU! Intramural sports are also a huge thing at LSU which adds a balance for all students

4 College Senior

Majors: Getting into the Engineering program was not complicated at all as long as you complete the classes need and have the right GPA. Maintaining a decent GPA is the most important thing because without a decent GPA you cannot accomplish much such as: entry into the College of Engineering, scholarships, financial aid, etc. GPA matters however do not let it define who you are, stay in touch with a counselor and get to know the College of Engineering counselors early. Knowing a counselor will help you stay ahead and they are always there if needed.

5 College Senior

Majors: I am in the Industrial Engineering program and I love it! I had the opportunity to experience Chemical Engineering and Industrial Engineering because I switch programs and there is a difference. The IE professors are very helpful and it is a smaller program so there is more one on one time spent and they are invested in your career and understanding level. Internships are always available and the professors are always informing you of different internship/research opportunities. Growth is a focus of the program and they are constantly making sure that you are growing as a student. The workload is communication intensive so I suggest applying to become a Distinguished Communicator.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Financial aid is great and very smooth until you enter your 5th or 6th year. Engineering usually takes more than 4 years and that is when the financial aid process becomes very complicated. Stay on top of your financial aid and get to know your financial aid counselor to receive the best funding.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: LSU's academic policies are very strict and are followed very closely. Although LSU is a party school it is understood that you will follow the rules and attend class, at the end of the day classes are NOT CHEAP.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You get to meet people and freshman year is one of the best places or meet people. I love it. I did the stranger Roomate thing and it was okay we weren't like best friend by the end if the year or something, but it worked out. We had our times where we wanted to kill each other, but all in all it was worth the experience and total worth of time. It could work out differently fir different people.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my teaching major I got to work with kids my freshman year and tutor them. I love my major and the specific classes for it.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I feel that the student teaching that you really start junior year is going to be so much fun I've talked to some juniors and seniors who are going through it and they love it.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus, but there are apartments almost basically on campus and a lot of friends love them.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid has been great wouldn't be able to go to school without it. Sometimes need a little more money to finish paying things, but overall good.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is campus pd and a campus transit that you can call at night to pick you up and drop you wherever needed but it takes a little time to get there. Need more of the call buttons around and more lights.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is tiger land which is okay if your into the bar scene and you can get into a couple of the bars when your 18, but I'm not a big party goer so not that into it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few places right outside of campus to eat. A few actual restaurants, but overall food is good and convenient

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: State capital so there are some cool things to do. Way more to do than my hometown.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I don't go out much

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.
