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.

I grew up in Baton rouge going to LSU and all things LSU. We bled purple and gold in my family. Actually my family donated the LSU lakes to LSU back in the 30's. Definitely take a walking tour of the beautiful campus and notice the architecture of the building. I am proud to be an LSU Alumni.

Really nice campus, visited during Bayou Superfest Concert so everywhere was very crowded but campus is set under many large oak trees and well kepy. Seems like a nice place to go to school.

My son and i went on a college tour and were quite impressed by the beautiful grounds as well as the history of this university. It is large but nicely designed.

I may be biased but think this campus is gorgeous. The huge oak trees & the architecture make it very special. Parking when school is not in session is a must because streets are restricted otherwise which makes driving difficult.
