4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience here has been wonderful so far. The school is amazing and has so much history and school pride. Everywhere you go, you see businesses and people supporting the school. The assistance given to me has been great so far. I've spoken to many helpful administrators and counselors when I've had a question. Most of the buildings are a little older, but I prefer that. Parking hasn't been an issue for me, however my classes are held on one of the outer limits of the campus. My student organizers have been phenominal this week, organizing several fun events and mixers for us to come and break the ice. I'm looking forward to my next 4 years here!

Overall Experience: The environment is so comforting and special. I made LSU my new home. I would not choose another school if i had the chance to because it is in-state, not to far from home, and the academic and athletic environment is unique.

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.

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.

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.

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 Food: Food in the dining hall is average cafeteria food. Food in the union is normal take out/fast food.

Scholarships: Financial aid is impossible. Especially coming from Texas.

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.

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.
