LSU campus is very pretty. It is mostly spanish mission style architecture and it just fits into the surroundings. It's fairly easy to navigate.

How can you beat the the Stately Oaks and Broad Magnolias? The Spanish tile roofs and archways are characteristic of LSU. The live oaks are truly beautiful and well kept. The Vet School is in the top 5 of the U.S. Tiger Stadium, Alex Box, PMAC, the Parade Grounds, the Clock Tower, Mike's Habitat and the student union are all... More

We drove through LSU on our way to New Orleans with our high school aged kids, and they loved the campus. We might have some Tigers in our future!

Drove to campus so we could buy LSU sweatshirts. Found a wonderful Barnes and Noble bookstore. Traffic was crazy and slow but it allowed time to see more. The campus has gorgeous old oaks and lots of green.

First, let's talk about parking. Parking is tough to find, but it does exist. There is parking just off campus at Highland and Chimes Street or thereabouts. Alternatively, go to the corner of Dalrymple and Highland, where the LSU visitor center is. There is paid parking there. I work on the LSU campus and love walking around the lakes. It's... More

The distances are great when walking on the LSU campus, but the gorgeous, old live oak trees and beautiful, classical architecture makes the walking a pleasure. Every once-in-awhile the trees drop little droplets of water as you walk under them--nature's surprises!

We drove through the campus and found an easy place to park beside the lake and a wonderful area to walk along E. Lakeshore Drive. There are a number of elegant homes along the walk and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Way to geaux LSU tigers! This is walking campus that has taken into consideration those trying to get around on foot or bike. All kinds of eateries, an ice cream shop and the largest college Barnes & Noble in the US. We also found everyone laid back and friendly!

As a Gamecock fan I must admit this campus is very nice. The oaks are highly inspirational. The campus is spread out and the Barnes & Noble bookstore is a nice added touch.
