Been on campus many times. My daughter graduated from LSU and enjoyed her time there. I like the campus with Tiger Stadium and Alex Box Stadium as well as the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

We spent quite a bit of time here just recently helping our daughter settle in to her freshman year. No wonder the campus is voted as one of the most beautiful in the USA! The facilities are amazing as well. The staff and students all seem so friendly and welcoming. I was so impressed!

I love the campus, and miss walking it daily to class. I got engaged at the bell tower and it's true what the alma mater says - stately oaks and broad magnolias bring beauty and historical charm to the campus.

We came to Baton Rouge to check out LSU and attend the LSU v. Arkansas football game. I thought the campus was impressive, the program for all the kids had a lot of options available, the president gave a good speech, and all the students were helpful in directing you around the campus. It was a long day with a... More
