Community Bound

Public service is an important part of LSU's mission. Every year on the Saturday before fall classes start, students have the opportunity to participate with Campus Life, FYE, the Honors College, and Volunteer LSU for a day of community service. Students and faculty head across Baton Rouge to help East Baton Rouge Parish schools with minor improvement projects. It's a great way to give back before hitting the books for the semester.

Tiger Time

Tiger Time

Join us for LSU's newest Tiger Tradition when the incoming freshmen class takes a class photo in Tiger Stadium. It's not just any class photo though because you'll spell out L-S-U in the student section. After the photo, FYE hosts a block party outside the stadium with free food, drinks, and music. You don't want to miss this event! Watch L-S-U get bigger every year.

What's the big deal about jambalaya?

Bengals Beyond the Bayou kicks off fall programming with a jambalaya dinner for out-of-state students and their friends. If you're not from Louisiana, come enjoy a taste of cajun cuisine, meet other incoming students, and visit with FYE staff.

#AskFYE Tents

#askFYE Tents

LSU is a large campus, which sometimes makes it difficult to find classes on the first two days of a new semester. FYE and LSU Ambassadors partner each year to help students, give directions, and offer refreshments. Through the academic year, you can continue to ask us anything through social media using #AskFYE.
