We were in town visiting friends and we stopped here one afternoon. This is a beautiful campus. LSU is well known for their football teams over the years but the campus is just beautiful. It is definitely a must see for any football fan

My son will start at LSU next year. We went to visit the campus. It is really a pretty campus on a small like with huge oak trees everywhere. It is worth driving by even if you are not going to school there.

This campus has been described as one of the most beautiful in the nation. There is a great student union with a bookstore, Indian Mounds and a wonderful campanile. The grounds are awesome. Take some time for a visit.

This is a beautiful campus that houses the university. It is one of the more picturesque campuses on the country. A total party during a home Tiger game.

I had visited several campus all over the nation and this is on the top three of the nation. Beautiful buildings, oak trees, areas to lay down on the grass, nice union and beautiful habitat for their mascot. Great restaurants around the campus to eat.
