  • LSU is one of the most beautiful campuses donates USA and unmissable in Baron Rouge! For children it is nice place for cycling, play in parks and take a delicious ice cream made by the University itself. Don't forget to stop by the Barnes Nobles ans and take a souvenir from LSU. The campus is beautiful, very well taken care of with gardens and trees everywhere. The Habitat of the LSU's mascot is a nice visit and enchants everyone. Around you can find good restaurants (Newk's, Louis, Chimes) and the best cookies in the world (Insomnia Cookies). The Lake is beautiful especially at sunset. ideal for jogging. Have with bathroom and kiosk location to picnic.

  • LSU is strong in a number of academic fields of study though weaker in several others. The overall numerical national ranking of the school will only pick up if it reduces the size of it's freshman class and raises it's minimum testing (SAT, ACT) admission standards. The quality of student accepted is important in elevating the academic reputation of the school. Just look at other higher ranked public schools in the SEC such as Florida, Georgia and Texas A.M. The Administration needs to stress and market the academic quality of the school so it can obtain a more thoughtful reputation in higher ed. In some ways the athletic program reputation actually takes away from the real academic experience at LSU. Our young one loved it and now has a great job. It's all about being an LSU Tiger.
  • My second home and favorite place in Baton Rouge. It has strong academic reputation with very high research activities. It also has very fantastic campus!
  • Im currently a student in High School. My favorite sport is football. I really enjoyed watching the LSU football Tigers season. Some of my favorite players who came from LSU who are in the NFL now. Odell, Jarvis, and Jeremy. And I plan to follow them. I cant wait to become part of the LSU team and try out for the NFL as well
