LSU Undergraduate Society for the Study of Religion

We love our students! We work hard for everyone who majors in Religious Studies to achieve full employment and life fulfillment. The LSU Undergraduate Society for the Study of Religion is key to setting our students up for success. This student-led club is a great way to get out of the classroom and into the real world. From visiting religious sites to debating religious questions, the club prepares our students for the difficult challenges facing communities as close as Baton Rouge and as far as Cairo. Get involved!
