4 College Sophomore

Administration: I constantly see demonstrations or protests in the same general areas, so it's nice it's not all over the campus, but nice that it's allowed as well. differing groups set up tables for awareness for their cause or recruitment. This shows me that Admin is light handed with speech. but we're hammered about drinking/drug/sexual abuse, so they are hard about that. there are many offices that deal with differing aspects of academics, social, employment area of students lives. I'm glad the help is there as it can be confusing or disparaging to get this on our own.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't really know what to say about it.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have never had a problem with any of the Administration here at LSU. The only thing i know about policies affecting students is the tobacco free policy. I don't smoke, but its kind of impractical to think that you can just end smoking at a college campus. its too prevalent at every college campus. Its not very enforced anyway, so it doesn't really affect anyone.

Administration: some friends had bad experience w/ cheating policy

4 College Freshman

Administration: LSU is great in most areas. Not very strict on drinking policies, but I think a lot of it depends on which dorm you live in. Also, when it comes to honor codes, it depends on the class size and the professor. Parking, however, is a hot topic on campus because it is limited, and tickets are handed out on a regular basis.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Campus strictness is kind of a mixed bag. You can get away with a lot, but not murder (or growing pot in your room). LSU is usually looking out for underage drinkers on campus, except during football game days, and most of the dorms don't allow alcohol. Students in the on-campus apartments have less restrictions, but if you are living in a dorm, you have to obide by their rules. RAs will search your room, so it's important to make sure your coffee pots, booze, and anything else illegal is locked away when you are not around. Campus strictness depends completely on where you end up living. People in the Pentagon throw keg parties on the weekends without having any problems, while students in West Laville have to write essays if they are caught with a hot plate. 

Game day tends to be the most conflicting day for students that have run-ins with campus police. Some cops allow students to run wild on LSU game days, while others are looking to hand out as many MIPs as possible. However, it's still hard to use the word "strict" when the entire campus has been turned into party grounds. For off-campus students, the major quip is with DUIs. If you are driving drunk in Baton Rouge, you will get caught. But you should always designate a driver for personal safety.
