Louisiana State University Students Tell It Like It Is
Louisiana is a state known for the philosophy of laisez les bons temps rouler a Creole phrase meaning "let the good times roll." And there are plenty of good times to be had at LSU.
"The good news for incoming freshmen is you don't have to settle for on-campus entertainment or house parties in Baton Rouge. There are several bars around campus that let in 18 year olds, and drinking rules are lax there, to say the least. There are bars for every crowd, plus, now downtown is beginning go grow to give even more options. There's a packed bar with a drink special for almost every night of the week, and that has sent many a freshman back home, so be careful!"
And in case you haven't heard, sports at LSU are pretty big, too.
"Varsity football equals huge. The whole campus shuts down for games during the season, tailgaters are everywhere, and alumni and out-of-town fans start showing up on Wednesday night for a Saturday game. If you like beer, tailgating, and football, you'll love school here."
But if you choose to attend Louisiana State, don't be alarmed when you first hear of Dead Week. Well, actually, you can be alarmed, but circumstances aren't as dire as they first may appear. Dead Week has nothing to do with meeting your maker; instead, it has to do with the week before finals. But while you may be trying to cram all of the knowledge meant to be acquired within a semester into a teeny-tiny week, don't forget to eat! The Chancellor's Pancake Breakfast is a time when you can not only eat for free in both dining halls, but you can also hang with the Chancellor a rare opportunity not to be missed.
But don't expect an intimate atmosphere.
"If you want a small school, LSU is not for you. The lecture classes are a pure representation of it. It is very hard to be in a class with 300 to 375 students. As hard as the University tries, it becomes apparent in these lecture classes that you are truly just a number in a massive university."
And don't show up to class in a pirogue (pronounced pee-rogue a Cajun canoe, originally made from hollowed cypress logs). People don't really take these to class like in The Waterboy.
There's so much more to a school than a brochure or campus visit can tell you. Become an insider before you even set foot on campus!
Find out if LSU has something for you, straight from the students' mouths. Visiting campus isn't enough.

About the Author:
College guides for each of the top colleges and universities in the US
While writing our series of college guides, we felt it was critical that our content was unbiased and unaffiliated with any college or university. We think it s important that our readers get honest information and a realistic impression of the student opinions on any college campus that s why if any aspect of a particular college is terrible, we (unlike a campus brochure) intend to publish it. While we do keep an eye out for the occasional extremist the cheerleader or the cynic we take pride in letting the college students tell it like it is. We strive to create a college guide that s as representative as possible of each particular campus. Our guides cover both the good and the bad, and whether the survey responses point to recurring trends or a variation in opinion, these sentiments are directly and proportionally expressed through our guides.
College Prowler guides are in the hands of students throughout the entire process of their creation. Because you can t make student-written guides without the students, we have students at each college campus who help write, randomly survey their peers, edit, layout, and perform accuracy checks on every college guide that we publish. From the very beginning, student writers gather the most up-to-date stats, facts, and inside information on their colleges. They fill each section with student quotes and summarize the findings in editorial reviews. In addition, each college or university receives a collection of letter grades (A through F) that reflect student opinion and help to represent contentment, prominence, or satisfaction for each of our 20 specific categories. Just as in grade school, the higher the mark the more content, more prominent, or more satisfied the students are with the particular category.
Once a college guide is written, additional college students serve as editors and check for accuracy even more extensively. Our bounce-back team a group of randomly selected students who have no involvement with the project are asked to read over the material in order to help ensure that the guide accurately expresses every aspect of the university and its students. This same process is applied to the nearly 300 colleges and universities College Prowler currently covers. Each guide is the result of endless student contributions, hundreds of pages of research and writing, and countless hours of hard work. All of this has led to the creation of a student information network that stretches across the nation to every college that we cover. It s no easy accomplishment, but it s the reason that our college guides are such a great resource.
When reading our guides and looking at our college rankings, keep in mind that every college is different and that the students who make up each college are not uniform as a result, it is important to assess colleges on a case-by-case basis. Because it s impossible to summarize an entire college with a single number or description, each guide provides a dialogue, not a decision, that s made up of 20 different topics and hundreds of student quotes. In the end, we hope that this guide will serve as a valuable tool in your college selection process. Enjoy!
