I've been only the campus several times now. My daughter is a student there. It is a beautiful campus, with all the live oaks!

Drove around the lakes surrounding the campus area. Lots of joggers, walkers. Nice view of the campus buildings. Worth a drive or walk around the lakes and campus.

I started college here over 20 years ago and recently went back to finish my degree. There is so much to do and see, even as a non-student. Excellent architecture, beautiful walkways and paths. If youre visiting Baton Rouge, do yourself a favor and take a campus tour. You wont regret it!

Both of my boys want to attend LSU. The campus is beautiful and there's plenty of nice places for the kids to stay on campus. I was very impressed with the layout of the college.

This is one of the most beautiful college campuses I have ever seen. My daughter's Junior year and I enjoy coming down to get her moved in every August. Baton Rouge is a beautiful place

This campus is absolutely beautiful.. even in the summer it is really nicely landscaped. The campus is large and we brought our six year old daughter who really enjoyed but the highlight for the entire family was stopping at the Dairy Store - The ice cream rivals that of any high end ice creamery.
