“Parking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Behind the new Barnes and Noble (across Highland Road from the Student Union) is a brand new parking garage. Remember your spot number and pay when you get to the stairs/elevators upon arrival- $1.50 per hour. It is not close to the stadium or Mike the Tiger. (Student Union and Law Center area)

“Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Went with a friend to visit a student. Love the university. Some of the building have been renovated and I can't wait to see it completed. The price of tuition is reasonable.

“Beautiful Campus + Mike, the Tiger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Visiting Baton Rouge on the weekend, we enjoyed driving through the campus one afternoon. The buildings are lovely architectural sights. The arena and stadium were also interesting sights. The most fun was a quick visit to see Mike, the tiger. LSU has built a new habitat for their mascot -- very nice. Mike was out during our afternoon visit, but he was not active. I guess it was time for his afternoon nap. The area had dozens of other tourists out to see Mike as well as his statue near the habitat. Don't miss the photo op. We appreciated the opportunity to walk the campus for a few minutes and enjoy the beautiful day.

Such a cool place to visit and take in all the sights. Go and walk around a little and you will see what I mean.
