As part of the Division of Student Affairs, Campus Connections is a unit housed within Student Success that focuses on the needs of first-year, transfer, and veteran students as they transition to LSU. Through interactive programming and individual strategy sessions, Campus Connections ensures an all-inclusive experience at LSU. Students that take advantage of Campus Connection programming typically feel more connected to the community and experience success at LSU.
Focusing on your first year, First Year Experience (FYE) programming helps build a strong foundation for student success. . Prior to the fall semester, experience STRIPES, a four-day, three- night program where students learn the history and traditions of LSU. Students connect with peers, student leaders, faculty, and staff while gaining valuable information about the academic and campus resources available to them.
Supporting students transferring to LSU, Transfer Student Programs (TSP) is dedicated to helping transfer students find their place, engage in the campus community, and succeed at LSU. The diverse strengths and experiences of LSU’s transfer students are a vital part of our community. Through programs, events, and student organizations, Transfer Student Programs offers resources and opportunities to help students find their place and transition to LSU.
Advocating for our veteran and military students, LSU's William A. Brookshire Military and Veterans Student Services is dedicated to helping veterans, service members, dependents, and survivors succeed in higher education and in seeking employment. We hope to foster a community of support at LSU for veterans and their families through helping students achieve personal and professional goals, explore new learning experiences, and get involved on campus. Our main goal is to start students on the right path, help them transition to college, and ensure they earn a college degree.
