3 College Freshman

Administration: I personally haven't had any experiences with administration in a positive or negative manner.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They're not very strict when it comes to what you can and can't do when you're trying to have a good time, but when it comes to academically related subjects, they're on top of their game.

4 College Senior

Administration: Any decline in GPA will be addressed immediately and academic probation will be in effect immediately. There is no rounding of GPA's either.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think the campus strictness is alright. I think maybe they focus a bit too much on parking violations, honestly. Cars get towed left and right, so be mindful of the designated parking lots. Cops here are also always handing out MIP's, so that can discourage underage drinking. They also are always ready to bust someone for any kind of drug possession, which can lead to some serious problems, so be careful! A less serious concern is attendance. The school really encourages showing up for class. You have 3 unexcused skips per class, I believe. After 3 unexcused class periods, your grade drops a letter grade in that class. Use your skips wisely.

4 College Junior

Administration: I think we have a great balance between rules and student freedom. Most of the administration cares about students and tries to help them in most situations.

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.
