Helping Ag Tigers Transition to LSU

Ag Summer Series

The LSU College of Agriculture is offering an Ag Summer Series for incoming freshmen this fall. These sessions are offered online and in real-time featuring faculty and staff who will share important information and answer questions you may have about joining the College of Agriculture.

Take advantage of these opportunities to learn more about your major, financial planning, pre-veterinary medicine, and more. We will also be offering Parent-to-Parent sessions for parents and guardians to help their Tigers during this transition.
