Beautiful Campus. The Oak trees are off the hook you can walk almost anywhere on this campus in the dog days of summer and be in the shade most of the time. Known as a party school LSU is growing every year and is the flagship of the state system. Law School but no Medical School. Great bars and restaurants... More

You don't have to attend class at LSU or have several degrees earned from LSU, to enjoy a tour of the campus. It is an attractive place with numerous places to see. A slow tour by car can be had in an hour or so, but a tour by foot enables you to see the beauty of the campus up... More

Did a drive-through just so my teenage son can get an idea of college campuses. The campus is expansive but pretty. Worth a drive-through if you are in the area.

I've been here a million times, but nothing is better than game days. You've never truly experienced LSU Until you enter Death Valley.

Enjoyed spending time on the campus with my soon to be LSU Tiger at a well-planned Parent/Student recruitment event in March.

My daughter attends LSU, so I've been there numerous times over the past few years. There are many large trees and green spaces. The campus is large but not so large that you can't walk it. The student union has several decent fast food options and a small grocery style store. Across the street is the best college Barnes and... More

In town and decided to visit campus. It was a little difficult to drive through certain areas of campus, but it is a beautiful campus with huge trees!

I am a proud graduate of LSU! I received my B.A. in 2000 and have missed the campus ever since. The diverse student population was one of the most appealing things about the university. Back in 2000, the student population was like 30K+. It's a great school and I visit the campus with my kids whenever we are in Louisiana.

I really enjoyed driving around the campus. As an alumni, I was glad to see that the LSU campus is clean and well-cared for.
