LSU is overall a fun school. There is a lot of focus on our sports teams, big football games tend to make you feel as though you are apart of something bigger. The whole city comes together to celebrate LSU, you will see many people from the state proud to have been apart of LSU. Greek life is prominent but plenty of people are not apart of it as well. On campus housing is hit or miss depending on which dorm or apartment you choose to live in. Plenty of affordable off campus housing options available. Classes tend to be large. LSU puts on events to let the students know they are appreciated. Overall, a good school!
Since I'm from South Louisiana, LSU is my state school and so far it has been pretty good. The sports culture here is everything and there is always something happening that encourages people to get involved. Despite sports being a huge attraction, the arts aren't left behind. There is a great art program and a gallery in our Student Union for all students to enjoy.
I really like the school and would love to come after I graduate from BATON ROUGE HIGH
I think LSU is a great school, though it is on the large side. Starting somewhere smaller worked for me. But transferring and expanding my horizons here was a great idea, and I feel that I'm getting opportunities and exposure that will benefit me greatly in my future.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College is 76%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
The advice that I would give students about finding the right college is to really look into their personality. Each college has something unique to offer to that student. People aren't made from cookie cutters, so they aren't all the same. What might be the best college to one is the worst to another. Look at every aspect and make a good decision. Don't rush it.
My classmates are just like me; they are all trying to become successful!
The financial aid office is nearly impossible to navigate. I've been over there many times. Not only do they keep moving the office, most of the "counselors" are student workers. I have been here four years and have only talked to a professional financial aid counselor once.
Big campus, Big population, Big directions for life, Big options.
The best thing about this school to me, is the school spirit when it comes to football. The LSU football team is supported well by the students. If I could change anything about this school it would probably be the allocation of funds towards the football team being used for other educational things. The school is the perfect size. You can know enough people to not know everyone. When people hear that I go to LSU they are very excited, Especially because in Baton Rouge LSU is the college to attend. I spend most of my time on campus in the student union, this is where most people spend their time. Socializing and associating with others. The school's administration is excellent, but sometimes you have to know the right person to go to with certain problems seeing as the campus is so large. As I stated before the school's pride is at an extremely high level.
I like the size of the campus I'm always meeting new people to help in my studies, my social life, or any other aspect.
We are known for our academic excellence and our great football team geaux Tigers! We are also the biggest school in Louisiana.
I like the beauty of the campus. It seems that there really is no other place like it.
It has a really great atmosphere. The people are really friendly and it has good Southern charm. The campus is also really beautiful - I think that's what surprised me most. There are tons of trees and nice courtyards that you can study in. The buildings look really nice, too. If you're into sports this is definitely the place to be, but it also has what I'm looking for in quality education. I've had a really great time here.
If you want a professor to know your name, then most times, you have to sit in the front row of a classroom consistently answer questions or make yourself known in the classroom. Classes are very large sometimes but sometimes, classes are less. My favorite classes would have to be my Political Science classes because of the debates and discussions. Students study as much as they want to depending on your learning ability. Also, how much you study depends on the difficulty level of the class. We have many intellectual conversations outside of class concerning previous class discussions, abortion, the death penalty and other serious debates, even some concerning politics and economics. I am a Political Science Major and a Business Minor, which is why the Political Science classes are my favorite. Getting into LSU was fairly easy for me. Easier than I thought it would be. You only need a 22 on your ACT with a good highschool grade point average. Not only is the education at the school geared toward getting a job, it helps you while you are still in college to gain internships.
There aren't any stereotypes at LSU. Everyone is free to be who they are and they get treated equally.
The most popular activities are obviously the sports at LSU.
In attending Louisiana State University, I have learned the importance of having my inner motivation to set goals and achieve them. At a school as large as LSU, the numerous opportunities can easily overwhelm and confuse students. Therefore, students without a drive to actively take advantage of such opportunities should not attend LSU. Undergraduates that depend on a smaller community of professors and students for support should not immerse themselves in an environment in which individuals must be independent and self motivating.
I wish I had known how importnat it was to attend every single class. I wish I had been a little bit better at getting myself out of sticky situations.
A person who is determined to do what it takes to make their life dreams come true, to find out who they are and what they beleive in. This person should know their priorities so they can distinguish between work and play. This person should be social and fun because they would fit right in with every other student as well.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that it is primarily concerned with sports, particullary football. Although football does single-handly bring in an enormous amount of revenue for our school, other areas of our school need a little more attention, such as our dairy science program and buildings. LSU could try to give recognition and attention to other academic areas and extracurricular activities.
Oh yes! These stereotypes are true!
LSU fans are wild and crazy.
Its close enough to home, but just far enough so i can be away. And many of my family members went here,
Sports probably keep this school afloat.
