BATON ROUGE – Each fall, all family members of LSU students are invited to campus for a weekend of activities, programs and the chance to see the Tigers play a home football game in Tiger Stadium.


LSU Family Weekend activities allow LSU parents and families to reconnect with the university, experience campus life with their LSU student and enjoy the campus energy on game day.


Families enjoy a welcome dinner at the newly renovated Tiger Lair, a dessert social at the Memorial Tower, family tailgate party on the Parade Ground with a Zydeco Band, and an exciting football game in Tiger Stadium. The weekend is closed out with a Student Life jazz brunch on Sunday where families enjoy a southern brunch in style with a jazz band.


This year, LSU Parent & Family Programs is expecting approximately 750 families during Family Weekend, bringing close to 3,000 guests to campus. The LSU Family Association sponsors several of the weekend events, helping to offset the costs and keeping the registration fees affordable to families. This year the Family Association Council will be hosting a silent auction to benefit the Student Emergency Relief Fund.

Through orientation programs, campus events, and ongoing outreach and education, Parent & Family Programs fosters the connection for the families of current students to the university community. Supportive family structures enhance a student's ability to develop and facilitate a healthy transition into the university community and Parent & Family Programs seeks to foster a strong relationship with families through collaboration with constituents across campus.
