The LSU System’s communities of student scholars are engaging. In addition to participating in research projects, many have internships and spend semesters abroad. They participate in student government or one of hundreds of student organizations, ranging from student government to Greek life, and compete in everything from Division I athletics to intramural sports. Hundreds participate in community service projects, start their own business, are members of honor societies, graduate summa cum laude, enroll in graduate school and go on to live rich and rewarding lives.

Our graduates are critical thinkers and creative problem solvers. They’re confident, flexible and eager to be challenged. They find careers in a range of fields such as law and medicine, finance and economics, landscape architecture and urban planning, international relations and public policy, broadcasting and advertising, mechanical and electrical engineering, as well as nursing and teaching. The breadth and depth of our academic offerings is truly exceptional. It means you will be able to explore your academic interest, whether it’s sports management, psychology, mass communication or computer animation. We are confident our more than 85 bachelor degree programs will meet your expectations.

To fully appreciate our campuses and our philosophy of student-centered education, I encourage you to visit our campuses and meet with our faculty, staff and current students. Take a campus tour, attend a class, eat in our dining commons and check out the residence halls.
