FOOTBALL SEASON is by far the biggest perk of being an LSU student. The whole spirit of the campus is outstanding and it sucks you in. By the time you finish with one season, you'll be a hardcore, TRUE LSU fan (if you weren't already!). It's really not as large as it seems-- you get to know people within your college (there are several colleges within LSU that house related majors) and its not too hard to meet people. There are ways to make it smaller-- GET INVOLVED, and definitely step out of your shell and talk to that kid next to you. It's definitely a college town, of course with LSU, it's pretty much a college state.. Everyone in Louisiana LOVES LSU and could probably literally bleed purple and gold. Cool places on campus-- THE LAKES. They're right on the outskirts of campus and lots of people walk or jog around them. They're a great place to just hang out and feed the ducks after a long day. "Baton Rouge Beach" is also located along the banks of the lakes. MIKE'S CAGE. Mike VI, our own personal real life tiger, has a habitat right next to the stadium. He's our good luck charm-- if you see him out, you'll have a great day/ace that test/get the job you're interviewing for. If not, better reschedule. THE FOUNTAIN-- Sit next to it and look over your notes. Located conveniently in the quad, it's a great place to focus. JOURNALISM BUILDING-- if you need to study, this is a great place to do it. It's usually quiet and filled with plenty of seating.
Most classes are big your freshman year. It is possible to get to know your professor though. Sit in the front, talk to them after class, use their office hours. Just drop by and let them know you're in their class and wanted to introduce yourself. It helps a LOT. When scheduling your classes, DEFINITELY check out <universitytools.com>, it will save your life!
Every type of person from every walk of life attends LSU. Don't know anyone? Trust me, you'll find your niche. It's hard to be on the outs at this school. Louisiana is known for its hospitality, friendly attitude and natural southern charm. LSU is no different- we exude inclusiveness. To class, you can pretty much wear whatever you want. Sweatpants, t-shirts, cute tops, jeans, shorts, whatever. Don't dress up too much, though, or you might feel a bit out of place within the lazy college kids. And don't dress too down, or you might end up on Tiger Weekly's worst dressed list. If you do, don't worry too much-- they blur out your face. The Greek kids are the only ones that really show off their money. Northface backpacks and jackets, pearls, boat shoes.. Greeks are so cookie cutter here you can tell who they are right away.
