Welcome to LSU, Louisiana’s Flagship University
Welcome to LSU! I hope you enjoy your visit to our campus, where oaks and arches provide a beautiful backdrop to our unique educational environment.
While you’re here, make sure to stop by some of our outstanding landmarks, such as the 5,000-year-old LSU Indian Mounds, the Quad, the Parade Ground, our own Dairy Store, and the numerous museums and exhibits that populate our halls. These hidden treasures, along with state-of-the-art classrooms, some of today’s most advanced supercomputers, and top-notch lab space provide the foundation that makes LSU not just a destination, but an experience.
A hallmark of LSU is our hospitality. Our faculty and staff are here to help, so as you explore our historic campus, do not hesitate to talk with anyone in the LSU community you might encounter. We look forward to sharing our university with you.
