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!

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.

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

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.
