3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I chose to live off campus because of privacy. I wish I would've been able to live on campus because of how close you are to your classes but I just could not get over the lack of privacy.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I chose not to go Greek because I knew I would be busy with my studies alot but looking back on I wish I wouldve done it. Not because of the parties but because they actually do help with meeting new people and with your school work.

4 College Junior

Athletics: As I am not an LSU athelete I take pride as regular fan at alot of events such as football, volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, softball, baseball, and soccer. I love going to the games and showing my Tiger Pride.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a very fun spirited campus. When I'm on campus I actually feel motivated to do my school work. I've always dreamed of going to LSU and now that I am a Tiger I would not trade it for any other school. I love the new Business Complex because it is all brand new and up to date making it easy for us students to study and do our school work in timely fashion.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Just feels like home to me. Love the spirit and opportunities that are offered to everyone.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have thoroughly enjoyed my classes so far while at LSU and the professors are very involved and engaged which makes me want to interact in class discussion. Even though most of my classes are large , the teachers still make it easy to learn.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Having a degree from LSU will open so many doors for a person. Because of so many people that support the school and want to see it graduates succeed, receiving a degree from LSU is very rewarding.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: For the most part I feel safe at school. There have been a few incidents but nothing life threatening. Officers are always on or near campus and that makes me feel safe.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not sure about the Greek Life at LSU, therefore I can not really make an informed decision.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The students at LSU are the most spirited and excited about our athletics. Football season is one of the most exciting things about attending LSU. Attending a football game at LSU is like no other experience at any university.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is awesome because of the diversity and the opportunities to meet other people from different backgrounds beside my own

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Overall, Greek students add a great deal of worth and character to our already prestigious university. There are a variety of chapters, so finding one that suites a student's wants and needs is fairly easy to do. These students work extremely well with non-greeks, and they both come together to add to the community we call home. LSU wouldn't be the same without the opportunities that are offered through the greek organization.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: As I mentioned previously, I consider LSU as a whole to be a team in and of itself. The players couldn't get where they are without their fans. We all work together to contribute to what is famously known as Tiger Nation. Win or lose, LSU students fully support every single sports team. Football games, basketball games, soccer games, volleyball games, and even gymnastic meets; one out does the next. There's nothing like Tiger Athletics.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I remember being a senior in high school, I remember not wanting to apply to any other university except LSU, and I remember being ecstatic when I was accepted. LSU has been nothing short of an amazing experience for me. All of the friends I have met and the memories we now share because of this university are irreplaceable. It has such a unique atmosphere, like everyone who attends is a part of something greater and I've never felt that feeling so strongly until my first football game in the student section. Something about the way we tailgate, the way we enter the stadium, and the way we come together on and off the field during the actual game makes my school unlike any other. I wouldn't trade the opportunity for the world.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I was fortunate to live in new student housing my first year at LSU in the Mass Comm dorms for my major but I heard horror stories about other students dorms.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: At the heart of every Greek organization are the core values and service opportunities but it is more about social status and putting letters on your t-shirt and buying the swag and shirts from specific events. I am a part of greek life on campus and while I will see it through for all 4 years, I have gotten lost in the numbers of greek women and my voice is not heard. I would not be missed if I missed a meeting but I attend to try to make the most of the service opportunities and connections the chapter provides me. It is more about who you know and social status at this point though.

5 College Junior

Athletics: LSU football and Baseball are everything to some people and their families.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: While it is a football school and money is thrown into sports with cuts being made to education, I would say that the professors and staff work very hard to maintain the flow of knowledge and study on and around campus. I have had professors who have changed my life (and who need to be paid more) and I have had professors I just haven't connected with. But I switched my major from Journalism to English for Secondary Education and I am ready to learn all that the English department can teach me.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The quality of courses are high; Professors are strongly educated and engaged in the subjects they teach. As expected at a large university, beginning (gen ed/pre req) classes are big and size.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: We have a career center where you can get help with resumes and mock interviewing. There's also Careers2Geaux where students and grads can find internships, and on campus/part time/full time jobs. Every semester there's also a Career Fair where students can engage with recruiters from various companies.

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.
