Louisiana State University Reviews
LSU has been the greatest experience of my life. It has just about everything. It can seem really big when the Tigers are playing in Death Valley on a Saturday Night, but also could feel like a small homey college when in a class of only 15 students. The professor at LSU want the absolute best for each individual and help us succeed in all aspects of our lives. I am an athlete at LSU which is a dream come true! LSU cares for the upmost health and success for us on an off the court. We have tutors, nutritionist, and so much more to help make us become the very best versions of ourselves.
What I love about LSU is all of the resources that are available to students in order for them to succeed. Whether you are having trouble picking classes, finding extracurricular activities to join, picking a major or minor, keeping your grades up, and more, LSU is bound to have some resource to help you out. There are career and academic centers full of friendly and knowledgeable people who are ready to help you. There are hundreds of clubs centered around various interests, so there is something for everyone. The student body and faculty are so diverse, and the Dean is always looking for ways to create a more inclusive, safe, and educational environment. On top of all of that, LSU is a powerhouse for sports. Even if you aren't athletic or have ever been interested in sports, you will find a home in some athletic event here at LSU. The student life is spectacular, and you will always have something to do and great people to do it with. Geaux Tigers!
Geaux Tigers! I chose LSU over 3 other major university. I felt like I belonged from the first day. The classes are challenging, but you soon realize that this school is "no joke". The instructors are there to help and will at anytime. The weather is nice almost year round. There are plenty of organizations to get involved in. The sports are fantastic--especially football! You have got to be in Death Valley to feel the electricity of the fans. I love this school. I made the right choice.
