LSU's Roger Hadfield Ogden Honors College engages a diverse population of high-achieving students in a dynamic interaction of outstanding instruction, innovative research, and public service.

For more than 50 years, we have helped our students make the most of their undergraduate experience. Here, we offer an established curriculum, the opportunity for research, and faculty mentorship. Our small, seminar-based courses will give you a more dynamic and personal academic experience—one that will define you as a scholar and an individual beyond your time at LSU. We also understand that excellence transcends the classroom, so we champion holistic learning, cultural awareness, and community engagement. Our campus within a campus will become your home away from home. As part of our community of scholars, you will develop meaningful, lifelong friendships. Most importantly, we want you to take your education personally. Your interests, hopes, and aspirations will drive your time here. You won’t have to choose between serving your community and studying abroad, between tackling independent research or building your future career. Here, you have the freedom to explore. By the time you walk across that stage and receive your diploma at the end of your four years, you will have the skills and knowledge to go forth and create the future you have always wanted.
