What the students are saying about:

Louisiana State University (1 of 10)

Louisiana State University

Students at LSU are serious about sports, and so is the school's hometown. "Baton Rouge is definitely a college town. Life in this city centers around sports, drinking, and tradition. No matter where you look, whether it is on stores' signs, banners, t-shirts, advertisements, etc. there is a huge display of school pride," says Serena, a communications major. LSU's football team is by far the most popular, and Saturdays at Baton Rouge tend to revolve around games. One sophomore English student explains, "There is nothing better than spending the day tailgating with 100,000 of your closest friends, followed by a Saturday night in Death Valley for a Tiger football game."
