Guys & Girls: There are a lot of good looking people at LSU. People are very cool, we are all trying to get an education so we understand each other's stress. It's easy to make friends because apart everyone is friendly. The students usually dress very casually, a t-shirt and shorts or jeans. It's hot in Louisiana and it's a walking campus so it's best to stay cool with light comfortable clothes.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most people are very friendly and easy to start a conversation with. Everyone is willing to help you whether it be with directions or their opinion about certain things.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It's slim pickings when it comes to the guys. But I haven't had an issue making friends that are girls. Most of the guys that I meet are immature but they're in that "I'm in college so this is my time to party and have fun" phase. So most of the guys I meet are just friends or study partners.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone mind their own business, and get along well.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Maybe it's all the warm weather here, or the Southern hospitality, but it's a commonly accepted fact that Southern people are just more attractive. Maybe it's the tan skin or that Southerners rarely have to bundle like polar bears in winter clothing, but for most people, a walk around LSU's campus is undeniably a glance at some really attractive folks. Most students are open to hanging out at parties and going on casual dates with almost anyone that asks. The male-to-female ratio is fairly even, and though students may go through dry spells, rarely will you meet a student who hasn't had at least a few dates in their college career.

But serious courtship can be a whole other matter. Some students are obviously out to either graduate with their "Mrs. degree" or leave with a wife in tow. Conversely, there are some students who have no desire to be involved in anything. Relationships run the gamut from commitment-free sexual conquests to serious, life-long companionship. Many acknowledge that the girls tend to be more attractive than the guys. Some of the men here look like they either never hit puberty, or if so, it was a severely turbulent time. Some students complain that people can be too preppy, and it's hard to deny that it can be more difficult to find someone who is not Republican and into the conservative lifestyle. The sheer magnitude of the campus gives students hope that somewhere out there, a potential hottie is waiting to be found.

Social Scene
LSU is a laid-back and relaxed kind of school, where everyone is looking to have fun. Most students are fairly welcoming and friendly, making it easy to make friends or meet potential dates. Students are normally chatty everywhere on campus, and many people use classes as a pool of potential hookups. There tends to be some cliques, with Greeks dating Greeks and others sticking two-by-two in their kind. However, most students are open to meeting new people of all kinds.
Hookups or Relationships?
If you're looking for a "shack buddy," you can find that with no problems at LSU. Many students aren't interested in a serious relationship. That doesn't mean there isn't a lot of dating to be done. On the other end of the spectrum, several girls come to campus with the intention of getting their "Mrs. degree," and some guys are willing to bestow the degree. But with 25,000 students at LSU, it should be easy to find someone with similar interests, right?
Dress Code
You'll see a lot of the "fratty" look on guys, which consists of polos, outdoor gear like camouflage and deck shoes, and khakis. LSU students tend to go for a more casual style for the daytime. Most don T-shirts and jeans or shorts to class, and no matter the season, a good pair of flip-flops is a necessity. For a night out on the town, students clean up nicely, but still the majority of fashion sense leans toward preppy. But many students branch out beyond the preppy style, and LSU has everything from tie-dyed hippies to more trendy looks. Students keep up with the fads.
