I think the best thing about LSU is that there is no way you can't meet someone new and different. There is such a wide variety of people that it is impossible to at least see them. One thing I would change though is that I would fix up the Art buildings. They are old and decrepit as are several other facilities on campus. As for size, it is just right. LSU isn't ridiculously huge nor too small. When I say I go to LSU, they usually just say "Go Tigers!" I spend most of my time running around campus for classes and hanging out with people. Baton Rouge, is the definition of College Town. There are apartments and condos everywhere. Also, the businesses all have LSU colors in their windows and most businesses caters to students. LSU administration needs to remember academics some more and not place too much emphasis on athletics. I am personally disappointed in the way they only upgrade the business and engineering programs and forgets the arts. The biggest controversy is safety on campus. They are currently working on improvements though. School Pride? All I can say is watch one football game. The unusual thing about LSU is that no matter how much you are not into football, everyone here cheers it on. One experience I will always remember the RHA block parties and meeting new people every year. Most of student complaints are that the facilities need improvement.
Yea, my professors all know me by name. My favorite class this semester is my marketing class. It is an interesting look at how to improve my communication skills and the professor is quite interesting. I really don't have a least favorite class because even the one I like the least is still sort of interesting. Students study usually around 3 to 5 hours. Class participation is very common. You always have those few students that will speak up in class. As for intellectual conversations, there are many conversations that go outside the athletics realm being held. Graphic Design is quite interesting but really should be in the school of design and be allowed access to the resources that the design students have. I usually try to speak with my professors a little outside of class just to get their insight on life and class. LSU's academic requirements should be a little more rounded with different aspects of society. LSU is more geared towards getting a job.
I am good friends with some of the members of the LGBT, religious, and racial organizations on campus. As for what students feel out of place, I can not group them because I have noticed that no matter what group, social class, or race you are, there is always someone that may feel out of place. Most students wear normal cloths, granted some may dress nicer than others or dress in their PJ's. I feel that many different types of students interact on a daily basis. I don't quite understand the four tables thing, but I can say that it is a motley crew of people from all walks of life sitting together in the dinning hall. Most LSU students are from in state. I think the middle class background is what is most prevalent on campus. There is a lot of politically active students on campus, even clubs for both political parties are on campus. I think there is almost an even split of political sides here at LSU.
