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.

You are not going find a better place, and a quality of game when these 2 play. College football at its finest.

LSU is a walking campus and cars are not allowed on campus from 7am to 4:30 pm. Parking meters are available just outside the gates.

LSU campus is very pretty. It is mostly spanish mission style architecture and it just fits into the surroundings. It's fairly easy to navigate. Make sure you stop at the Visitor Center to get your maps and any other info you might need. Parking is behind the Barnes & Nobles bookstore in the visitor garage. It's a bit tricky to... More

How can you beat the the Stately Oaks and Broad Magnolias? The Spanish tile roofs and archways are characteristic of LSU. The live oaks are truly beautiful and well kept. The Vet School is in the top 5 of the U.S. Tiger Stadium, Alex Box, PMAC, the Parade Grounds, the Clock Tower, Mike's Habitat and the student union are all... More

We drove through LSU on our way to New Orleans with our high school aged kids, and they loved the campus. We might have some Tigers in our future!

Drove to campus so we could buy LSU sweatshirts. Found a wonderful Barnes and Noble bookstore. Traffic was crazy and slow but it allowed time to see more. The campus has gorgeous old oaks and lots of green.

First, let's talk about parking. Parking is tough to find, but it does exist. There is parking just off campus at Highland and Chimes Street or thereabouts. Alternatively, go to the corner of Dalrymple and Highland, where the LSU visitor center is. There is paid parking there. I work on the LSU campus and love walking around the lakes. It's... More

The distances are great when walking on the LSU campus, but the gorgeous, old live oak trees and beautiful, classical architecture makes the walking a pleasure. Every once-in-awhile the trees drop little droplets of water as you walk under them--nature's surprises!
