Learn what it really means to be an LSU Tiger.

STRIPES is a four-day, three-night program that prepares first year students for the transition to LSU. At STRIPES, students learn what it really means to be an LSU Tiger.

Students earn their stripes by learning LSU history and traditions, meeting other first year students, finding opportunities to get involved, and learning about the LSU campus. See what other students have to say about STRIPES:

"It made me realize that LSU is the school I was looking for."

"I feel like I am part of the student body and not just a freshman who doesn't know what she's doing."

"If you're from out of state, STRIPES is the perfect learning experience."

"I met some of my best friends at LSU during the STRIPES program.
