3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school is very fun, especially during football season. Classes are a bit tough but I still manage.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It has a great atmosphere for every type of person. The sports are amazing and the people are great. As a music major, I have many more classes than normal majors because of the low hours but I appreciate the challenge it presents with time management. It has been a great first year.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I loved LSU. Although it was not my first choice, it turned out to be the greatest decision for me. I got to be close to my family (but not too close), go to awesome sports games, and focus on all the academics I wanted.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great University, I couldn't have picked a better school

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Louisiana State University is the best college in the country! I have had nothing but great, positive experiences thus far. I have learned a lot, met many new and fantastic people, and have made my mark in the university already and I am only a junior. LSU is a unique university because it is one of the very few in the country that has a live mascot! It is also in the top 30 for research schools, which is something I would like to pursue in my graduate years. I would definitely choose my school again if I could do it all over again because LSU has such a welcoming community and inviting environment that really made me feel like I was at home again.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love college and everything about it. LSU has helped me grow up and handle responsibilities that many kids don't have the opportunity to do. I have learned so much in just a year and I couldn't be more thankful for my first year experience.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Though I'm set to start at LSU in the fall, my orientation was simply amazing. I can tell from the amount of resources available for me will allow me to do my best and get into the pharmacy school of my choice. I am so excited to be a Tiger and I wouldn't want to go to another school.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is definitely an experience, an experience that most will regret if they miss the opportunity. Of course dorms won't be as nice as an apartment but its all about sacrifice. If you sacrifice your somewhat spacious apartment or personal bathroom for the hectic dorm life you won't regret it. You will be in walking distance to campus, the REC, sorority and fraternity houses as well as places to eat.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Many apartments are very close to campus and are along the bus route which is convenient. Some can be pretty expensive but there are some that are reasonable.

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are old however they are on campus so it makes for an easier transition from high school to college. The social atmosphere is great and the housing department organizes events for all the communities from every dorm to join together

Administration: They are the campus police. They are there to do their jobs as police. That is exactly what they do.

Off-Campus Dining: I live off of food I bought from Walmart and Canes. Sometimes when my roommates and I want something besides Ramen noodles, we will pick a spot near campus. There are lots of restaurants to pick from also!

Health & Safety: Sexual assault is a problem, but it is not a huge problem at this school

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not currently in a sorority, but seeing the activities and the volunteer work that the Greeks do around the school for the community is really inspiring and makes one want to make such a wonderful difference in the community as well.

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.
