Advisor EDGE Certification
The Advisor EDGE Certification focuses on training and developing student organization advisors. EDGE stands for Engagement, Development, Guidance, and Education. These are four areas that will be expanded upon at the training, which will be held three times per semester. This training is required for new advisors and must be completed by current advisors once every three years due to changes in policies and procedures.
Campus Life maintains four display cases on the 4th floor of the LSU Student Union. Each display case is 23 inches wide and 33 inches tall. Registered student organizations may request permission to display information in the cases to promote their organization and its events. There is no charge to advertise in these display cases.
Campus Life offers event planning consultations to registered student organizations. Student organizations interested in receiving assistance with their events should schedule a meeting with the Campus Life staff at least one month in advance. Large campus events may need additional time in order to reserve space, equipment, and meet deadlines for city permits.
Registered student organizations can apply for group seating for LSU football games. The president of each interested organization must attend an information meeting in the Spring.
Individual members of the organization must meet a set of requirements in order to be eligible for group seating. These requirements are discussed further at the Spring Group Seating information meeting.
With over 400 registered student organizations, students can feel overwhelmed about finding the right organization to join. Involvement presentations help students identify which organizations meet their interests and needs. Involvement presentations are available upon request for student organizations, University departments, and classes.
The Involvement Roadshow provides outreach to students interesting in getting involved and markets involvement opportunities available through Campus Life, LSU, and the Baton Rouge community. In order to engage as many students as possible, the roadshow travels to campus locations that have high volumes of traffic and a variety of students such as the campus dining and residence halls.

Campus Life maintains 36 lockers for registered student organizations located on the 4th floor of the LSU Student Union. Each locker is 1’ tall x 1’ wide x 1 ½’ deep and there is no charge to rent a locker. Some additional storage space exists on the 4th floor of the LSU Student Union for smaller organization items. Lockers and storage are available on a first-come basis.
