As a graduate student who commutes over 3 hours weekly, I could not feel more at home. The professors are extremely understanding and they strive to aid students in success not only in the classroom, but also in your career.

Beautiful walks around the campus or the lakes. The tiger habitat is really nice, the bookstore has so many Geaux tiger options, and the campus as a hole feels very peaceful.

LSU continues to move up in the ranks of state universities. The university offers a broad range of academic studies, some of which rank in the top ten nationally.

If you are driving around to see the sights in Baton Rouge, don't miss the beautiful LSU campus! Very interesting history of how it was moved onto the old military grounds, then massively expanded when Huey Long was governor.

A surprisingly beautiful campus with many large live oak trees. Many of the buildings are ceramic-tiled Spanish style from the early 1930s or built/restored to match. See LSU's live mascot, Mike the Tiger, near Tiger Stadium. If you're lucky he will be swimming in his little pool or playing with his ball. A quick tour will suffice, or you could... More

Stopped here on the way to New Orleans. Campus is stunning. It is big, but walkable. 4/5 because there was no visitor's parking at all. Had to pay. I guess it's not a huge deal, but we almost just drove around rather than parked and walked because of it.

I'm obviously biased as I graded with a Masters and currently am pursing a PhD at LSU. But the atmosphere of the college and athletic facilities cannot be topped. It's a college town and the area bleeds purple and gold! Geaux Tigers!
