In Campus Life, we say every student can contribute to the LSU community. We also know that those students who do so will experience amazing personal, social and leadership growth to complement their academic learning.First Year Students
During your first year at LSU, it's important to balance the desire to connect with your new community and the need to begin your academic journey well. Look for involvement opportunities that support your learning outside of the classroom, that give you opportunities to relieve stress in positive ways and that connect you with other students, staff and faculty who will support and inspire you along the way.
Campus Life offers opportunities for you to practice your leadership skills, to serve others, and to connect to other students. Click below for information on:
