As a recent graduate from the MBA program, I find LSU's Baton Rouge campus to be a second home. I did not have the undergrad experience, so my knowledge of the campus is limited to the business school and the Student Union, but a drive under the magnificent oaks on a Spring or Fall day makes you want to roll...

Nice and helpful visitor's center. Beautiful campus and much changed from the 60's when my husband was a student at LSU. Nice sports store to load up on LSU merchandise.

Even if you are just passing through Baton Rouge, you should stop to visit Mike the Tiger. It truly is a sight to see for the entire family. The campus is beautiful and feels like a campus, unlike others that are located in a busy city. There definitely a 'campus' feeling here. All of the sporting facilities are amazing and... More

It's pretty and big. Nice trees and places for students to sit and do home work. Good stores and shopping, night life restaurants near by. Typical college campus!

This is a beautiful campus - Romanesque with a Southern touch. The main quadrangle is a lovely place to view the campus. Of course, Tiger Stadium and Mike the Tiger are also important spots to visit.

My husband and I are both proud to say we are graduates of LSU (his undergraduate degree and my graduate degree), but it's more than that to the people of Baton Rouge. It's the home to stately oaks, historic buildings, and the best fans in the world!

The LSU campus was definitely worth a visit. The architecture itself was not that stunning comparing to some other campuses in the nation, but still it was nice, and the layout coupled with magnificient trees made an impression. I even attended a game at the Pete Maravich hall, which was fun.

We were at LSU for our Daughter's Indoor Track meet at LSU's Maddox Field House. The indoor track and spectator seating has been upgraded sometime in the last 2 to 3 years. It is much nicer than when we were here for a track meet about 3 years ago. Unfortunately getting a ticket from the ticket window is a difficulat... More

A lovely campus with the southern feel, lots of old established trees, just a place to make me want to be an undergrad again!
