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.

Beautiful campus. The live oaks are majestic, the buildings are grand, the bell tower is an icon, etc. You'd be hard pressed to find a more beautiful campus.
