SPRINGFEST Recruitment Weekend is designed for outstanding African American, Native American, Latino/Hispanic, Asian American, first-generation, low income, and other rising seniors from historically underserved populations. Students are invited to spend 1day on campus to experience the academic rigor and social climate of LSU.

Although we target students from historically underrepresented populations, if you know a strong student who might contribute to the diversity at LSU and who would be interested learning more about our community, you are welcome to encourage those students to apply.

Yes, you may still apply.  You are encouraged to have an ACT or SAT score but you are not required.

Except for the Scavenger Hunt, all Springfest activities will occur in the LSU Student Union.

Up to 150 students will be selected for the weekend.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs takes the safety of our guests very seriously. The Office of Multicultural Affairs will be on hand around the clock to ensure that students have an educational and fun yet safe day.

Additionally, Multicultural Affairs selects thirty (30) trained college students to serve as SPRINGFEST Team Leaders to assist in making sure that students have the best experience possible.

Comfortable shoes, water bottles, snacks, umbrella or poncho.
