As a graduate of this venerable institution (M.Mus., '65), I have a long relationship with the educational program as well as being a faithful athletics fan. After a lengthy hiatus in Florida, my wife and I returned and retired to Baton Rouge. We are now experiencing LSU in a new and revealing way. We have acted as tourists and guides... More

Since my father was a college professor, I have been around campuses all of my life. I enjoyed walking around the LSU campus. The bell tower, the Law School, the Horseshoe, and all of the oak groves around campus (as a memorial for fallen LSU military members) made it very distinctive in nature. There are a lot of places to... More

The architecture of the buildings is Italian Renaissance with arches and clay tile roofs. It gives the campus a Mediterranean look. There is a beautiful 175 foot... More

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.
