LSU is located in Baton Rouge, the capital city of Louisiana, located on the banks of the Mississippi River. Baton Rouge is the second largest city in Louisiana after New Orleans, and it is a major hub of industries, petrochemical, medical, research, motion picture, technologies, etc. The culture revolves largely around eating and college sports, and unless you look hard for something else, you may not find it. Various recreational activities include meditation at Tam Bao Center, tripping at the Jungle Gardens down south and partying at New Orleans.
Strategically resting over 2000 acres on the southeastern part of Louisiana, LSU provides an urban setting for its students. The main campus consists of over 250 buildings that breathe the precious flavor of the Italian Renaissance style architecture. The campus is known for its precious 1200 live oak trees that are graciously spread across the university. 'Hill Memorial Library', whose architecture is loosely based on the Boston Public Library contains more than 4 million volumes of books, ebooks, and periodicals and provides as a center for research in humanities, arts, and fine arts. Their main library (Troy Middleton Library) houses publications from federal government and United Nations too.
The LSU campus has 8 museums featuring original works of students as well as exhibits from local to international artisans. LSU’s stadiums include Tiger Stadium (football). Alex Box Stadium (baseball), LSU Natatorium (swimming and diving) and five other facilities. No wonder, 57 buildings of LSU are registered in the National Register of Historic Places.

Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 43°F to 91°F and is rarely below 29°F or above 95°F. It is known to have moderate to heavy rainfalls at the peak of monsoon.

The average cost range is $4000 to $7000. Off-campus costs about $500 to $800 per month. There are 22 in-campus residential halls and 3 apartments with all kinds of necessary facilities and safe at the same time. In short, there is something for everyone for LSU to offer. For example, there are Taylor Hall and Beauregard Hall for the Pentagon Community.
At LSU, the student to faculty ratio is 22:1 which is great because it brings smaller classes for the students and more one-on-one teaching. The teachers have office hours each week and are known to respond to emails on time. There may be a leaning towards the lecture format, seen in classes. However, there is 24/7 tutoring available for students where tutors are students who have already taken the courses. Most popular majors at LSU are business, management, marketing, engineering, education, etc. Popular professors on campus are Christine Barrett (English), Joshua Bowman (Political Science), Liam Lair (Women’s Studies).
There are numerous private loans, federal loans, grants, and work while studying. The Louisiana State University also provides various scholarship policies as well. The average need-based scholarships are about $11000 which is higher than the national average.
An average median salary for LSU graduates would be $45000 but it changes from field to field. Agri-business fetches a maximum of $60,000, chemical engineers fetch over $1,00,000 (similar to other engineering branches). For medical students, the average salary is about $60000 and for MBA students, the average is $80,000. Some of the employers that come on campus are Jacobs Engineering Group, Shell Oil, Tulane University, Accenture, Apple Computer, etc.
Louisiana State University comes with a huge historic heritage and a great athletic history. Apart from that, it is a huge campus with a great number of students. If you can match the pace with it, you can have a field time at that. Overall, it is a friendly campus to be in and a great place for people involved in sports and/or Greek life.
