Louisiana's Cajun culture is one of the unique aspects of LSU. Participants can grab a partner and learn how to Cajun dance or sit back and enjoy a bowl of jambalaya.
Late Night Activities
Get to know your future classmates and make new friends. Hang out in the residence hall and play a game of cards, play a game of basketball at the UREC or choose another activity.
Flag/Roll Call Presentation
Show off everything that you've learned through STRIPES! You and your group will create and perform a skit to prove that your small group is the best around.
Every LSU Tiger should know the alma mater. At STRIPES, you'll join the staff and other participants on the steps of the LSU Law School to sing the alma mater and begin your LSU experience.
Participants are assigned to different groups at the beginning of the program, which makes it easy to make new friends. You'll be working with your group members and other groups in your streak to show what you've learned about LSU. You'll also learn what life as a college student is like through your small group leaders.
Passing the Torch
STRIPES doesn't have a graduation ceremony, but the torch passing represents the passing of leadership to incoming students. If you attend STRIPES, you'll be well on your way to success at LSU. Then it's your turn to use your experiences to make the most of your time at LSU.
