4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Moving off campus can help save a lot of money. There are also a lot of off-campus housing options that are within walking and biking distance to campus. Plus, there is a bus service that reaches most off-campus housing options.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The nightlife at my school is excellent. There is always something to do. Especially on a Saturday night after a home football game. The party scene is safe and enjoyable for everybody.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of off-campus dining options. For those living on-campus, these locations are within as reasonable walking distance for those living on the west-side of campus. It's also within a somewhat reasonable walking distance for those on the east-side too.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration is always available to help answer any questions you may have.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: LSU does poorly about advertising the scholarships that are available through the school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Campus food is not that bad. LSU Dining should incorporate more food options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is not that bad at all. Housing is basically divided into a west-side and east-side. The each side has its own pros and cons. Living on the east side means that you are closer to the recreational center, bookstore, and student union and some classes. However you have the farthest walk to sport events like football, basketball, etc. Living on the west-side means that you are closer to classes and sporting events but have the longest walk to the Student Union, bookstore, and recreational center. However, it is very costly to stay on campus($3500 per semester on average).

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: All the off-campus dining adds up, but Pita Pit and Cane's are always good options.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Get all of your required documents in as early as possible, and MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR GPA UP. I just lost my academic scholars scholarship and I don't know if I can get that back. Every dollar counts, guys

Campus Food: I gained so much weight on my meal plan. I've been back at home for less than a month and it's all falling off because I'm eating food that I can cook myself. Until the dining halls can provide truly healthy meals and a better salad bar, I'm not getting a meal plan again.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in McVoy Hall last year, which is one of the older buildings on campus and it is very small and not as nice as many of the other dorms. I was never really in the dorm except for when I was sleeping, so it didnt bother me too much.

3 College Student

Administration: The only truly awful thing is the parking. LSU is a walking campus, and that means walking for fifteen or more minutes to get from your car to your first class. Park in the wrong area, and a ticket or towing is almost definite.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I am able to live at home still, but many of my friends live in the apartments off of Nicholson. They like it, and the freedom it offers.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Some of the dine-in restaurants are a bit pricey, but a favorite of mine is Raising Canes. It's open late, reasonably, and always of good quality.

3 College Student

Campus Food: From what I have experienced, the food options within the student union are the best. I like the options and the consistent quality of the food. The dining halls have their off days, and those are the days I usually end up going so I just prefer a quick meal from the student union or my own lunch from home.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live, it is either fantastic or crummy. A lot of buildings are under renovation, so many students have been placed wherever a mattress fits until it is complete. A friend of mine is currently staying in a basement room with two other students.

4 College Junior

Administration: I'm happy with LSU's administration

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Study rooms in the dorms were convenient

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The Woodlands have been awesome

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Party scene has a negative impact on students

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Wish there were more "fresh" options

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Not enough healthy options in dining halls

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: TIGERLAND. Find your way there.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Love that everything is close to campus!

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Because my parents are hardworking and make decent money I do not qualify for financial aid. What they fail to realize is that parents like mine do NOT have $10,000 to dish out each year for my schooling.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
