We had no reason to go other than the LSU reputation- we parked easily in the visitor's lot at the Highland Road entrance with a crazy pay to park kiosk. We walked among the classic live oaks and across the quad to see Mike the tiger (sleeping, his paw was bigger than a human face) we circled the stadium and... More

One of the most scenic spots around the university is actually the university lakes that are near the campus. They are near Interstate 10 and you can access them from Dalrymple Drive or Stanford Avenue. If you take May St from Dalrymple, you will see a parking area and you will be at one of the best spots to begin... More

I am sort of a college buff and enjoy visiting campuses when I am elsewhere. I have seen beautiful colleges campuses such as Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. I have also seen campuses that the last thing I would call them is beautiful l (I'll just choose to be discreet at this point). LSU is one of the most beautiful... More

LSU's campus is truly unique in the South..it's campus was rated as one of the nation's 20 most beautiful and architecturally unique in Thomas Gaines', "The Campus as a Work of Art." Of course, the university is a sum of the state of Louisiana, and reflects the state's very special character.

Always fun to stop at Mike the Tiger's habitat. He was asleep near the front and obligingly swished his tale. Gift store had excellent selection.

We only had a few minutes but were able to drive through parts of the campus, including the circle around the parade grounds, the Memorial Bell Tower, the Student Union, Evangeline and Acadia dorms. It was like a trip down memory lane from my days as a coed! The security system in place blocked us from several roads, but we... More

Hard to make way around at night even though we are familiar with the campus. main access road to campus was closed off due to construction making it hard to see areas we wanted to revisit.

My wife and I walked though the LSU campus and the LSU stadium during a recent trip to Baton Rogue. The campus is beautiful and very well kept. The LSU stadium is the home stadium of the Louisiana State University Tigers football team. It's an old stadium, but it's truly historic, and it has a very large seating capacity. While... More
